File Scavenger

File Scavenger is a data recovery application for NTFS. You can recover files you deleted accidentally or were damaged by viruses, but before the files are overwritten by Windows. You can retrieve files from the Recycled Bin or a network drive. There are three different search modes. First, you can have quick access to files that were recently deleted. Another one is for an exhaustive search. You can restore files from reformatted or corrupted volumes using the Defunct Volume Search mode. This third function will scan the entire hard drive and search for traces of lost files so you can use it when the original size or position of the volume is not known. This tool can support basic and dynamic disks, NTFS compression, sparse files, Unicode filenames or alternate data streams. Usually, you can recover the folder path along with the file.
