3. Pandora FIle Recovery

Pandora Recovery allows you to find and recover recoverable deleted files from NTFS and FAT-formatted volumes.

Once the scanning is complete you have full control over which files to recover and what destination to recover them to. You can BROWSE the hierarchy of existing and deleted files, or you can use SEARCH functionality to find a deleted file if you remember at least one of the following:

4. R-Linux

R-Linux is a free file recovery utility for the Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 FS file system used in the Linux OS and several Unixes. R-Linux uses the same InteligentScan technology as R-Studio, and flexible parameter settings to provide the fastest and most reliable file recovery for the Linux platform. However, unlike R-Studio, R-Linux cannot recover data over network or reconstruct RAIDs, or provide object copy.

There are two variants of R-Linux: one is for Linux, the other is for Windows. They are the same in their features, and differ only in their host OS.
