I recently emptied Windows Trash with some un-backed up files in it. A year's worth of letters down the toilet.
So I went to search for "lost files". I got a link to a program called File Recovery. Download here. So I downloaded. ho hum wait wait. restart. ho hum.
Search for all lost files. click and away she went, bit in teeth, wow, those lost files flashing by faster than a speeding bullet. After three thousand found files I thought I'd better stop and see what it is doing.
Holy cow, here is a list...I read. I dont see the ones I am looking for but I try to recover one just to see how it works. and LO.
TO RECOVER LOST FILES, NEED TO PURCHASE FULL VERSION OF FILE RECOVERY. $29.95.
Scam scam. This is first mention of "purchase". Well, I may purchase, or I may go to Staples and buy a file recovery program off the shelf. They are honest.... they tell you that you have to pay before you take it home.
