Default File recovery HELP!

Looooong story short, I need to recover a ton of pictures, many valuable. Recuva restored 60% or so, but a large portion are "not recoverable" because they are supposedly overwritten with system32 files.
Will any other program be more successful? I need help here.

If they have been 'overwritten' then this is tough (I am not sure if its possible).

Try "Recover my files" by Getdata and see if the demo can see the files.

I suggest r-studio.

It's capable of recovering data from a harddrive thats been formatted several times.

That being said , overwritten files may or may not be recoverable.

good luck !

I used this problem for years now to recover deleted files/data and also on formated drives etc. Simple of use.

Thanks for the answers, I think I'm in luck with Recuva's "deep scrub" option, as I moved them aalll at one point which seem to have left them in tact somewhere on the drive, though the file names are all gibberish, I can go through them. That was a month ago or so, so it may not be 100% but close to it, I think.
iRecover wouldn't let me install on the same drive probably to prevent over-writing, which is all I can do ATM, I'll try the other 2 if need be
Thanks!

Very bare site to a suspiciously small program. Fraudery? We all know what happened with combofix

ANyway, has anyone used R-Studio extensively? It doesn't seem to give me ANYTHING with a file name, so it makes recovering specific files (and not 1003048147 useless ones from caches or w.e). Or, getting things from a particular directory? They're all just in "Extra files"..

PS. Now have a ton of jpg's that wont open but have substance (100+kb), will anything open them?

The solution I suggested will often maintain the filename and directory structure (but not always).

try this company. Their software works pretty good (used it to recover a failed raid 5 array Mostly data). You would probably be looking at their get data back tool. Prices are fairly reasonable.
