    I just want to call the company up for a trial and see if it can recover some of the data by cyberscrubb. :)

    So what is the best software?

    Hi tempnexus,

    I have only tried Lost & Found by PowerQuest. It is more of a HD recovery tool than forensics. It is very slow, DOS, outdated, hasn't been updated in ages, but it actually worked for recovering some data.

    Here are a couple of links for real forensics:

    Access Data

    Encase Review

    They are very pricey, but they can do amazing things.

    @ tempnexus , though I'm not familiar with this myself, Mr. Gibson has a reputation for building small, but powerful apps.

    Can you say "BLING, BLING?"
