If you take a camera on holiday, you'll soon find that your 2GB SD card is filled with your holiday snaps. Move them across to your computer and most people will delete the original photos. Snag is, there is often a photo that you wanted to keep or didn't download to your computer. It's the same with your computer - drag a file to the trash and empty the trash. Most people think the file has gone for good, but it's easily recoverable using the right software.
With Computeractive issue 261, on-sale from today, you'll receive the full current version of the commercial PC Tools File Recover 6.2, which is currently on-sale for £20. This is a Vista compatible application and will enable you to recover files from your PC, SD card or external drive.
Don't forget, the latest Computeractive has had a re-design, so if you've not read the magazine for a while, it might be worth investigating. It's available in all good newsagents from today.
