My System Specs

Default Files recovery software

Hey every one! Here the prob,

A dumb at job wont dosen't belong in the tech room formated a PC without offering his owner a back up. Now all files are lost in the wood and I have to recover the maximum of them. What is the best software you know for file recovering after a format? It have to be free since my boss don;t want to pay for the software I was using before.

Thx a lot.

if it was a full format I think you're SOL though..

if it was a quick one you'll mostly be okay.
