We have all lost items while working on the computer by accidentally deleting them or someone lost them for you. This can be very frustrating, as some files are very important to our livelihood. Or maybe just important because they are personal. If you have looked everywhere, even the Recycle Bin, the following are hints and ideas to help you. It would be helpful to try them.

It is easy to use. Here are several ideas to get that file back intact. With a broken up disk and lost items from a file, the recovery software will quite likely not know what to do.
