I had made a post some months ago, on how to recover accidentally deleted data. I never had to use it, but today, I accidentally deleted an important spreadsheet file, while cleaning up some older files.

PhotoRec came to the rescue. Its fairly simple to use, and within a matter of 20 minutes it searched for over 170 old, deleted files. I easily found the one I was looking for. I think everyone should have a copy of PhotoRec, just in case...

Tip: Don't recover all the files, (I ran out of disk space). Go to "FileOpt" and just select the filetypes you are looking for.
