    Computer Forensics


    I was wondering if any one here knew of a good data recovery program, that is easy to use.

    I had source code to a game I was working on stored in my laptop which was running XP at the time. But then I switched to Linux.

    The data has been gone for years now but I haven't used the laptop in years either, so I was hoping there might be a chance to still retrieve it?

    Is there any program that is as easy as just searching for a particular file extension that has been deleted?

    Anyone with any insight on this subject please let me know.

    Thanks.

    I have tried a tool called ext3carve -it's old and most dangerous one , i won't recommend it anyone (atleast untill i fix the bug and release the next version)

    Check whether TestDisk is useful for you.
