I was under the impression that you had to have the "special software" installed prior to deletion. Or so I've read. But the data is technically still there until it's been written over... so there is some way to get it. Just a question of difficulty.

I am not a big data recovery expert or anything, but my understanding is that it is always possible if you are a data recovery expert, however it's pretty much only possible for home users (or even power users) with specialist software and when the files have been deleted and not over-written.

 

I don't have any experience with data recovery software on either OSX or Windows, but I can recommend a great DRC in London if that helps. Otherwise I would Google some keywords and see if you can find something like a feature comparison chart. I also have a couple of contacts I can forward you to if you can't find anything that way.

one person you might want to try to talk to is Steve Gibson at www.grc.com. he is mainly a security guy, but he also wrote spin right for file recovery. smart dude. worth a try.

Its possible and expensive in some cases i.e. if you took the comp. to a HD recovery specialist and he tore it out and took the data for you.
