Personal opinion from my own experience

I recently faced this problem with my pen drive and it had very valuable photos taken during an important ceremony. I tried lot of softwares suggested in many sites and everything finally asked me to pay something and if it is a freeware it failed to do anything. Finally just a Google search took me to Chk-Back, free recovery software from TRC data recovery limited. I scanned it with my updated quick heal 2012 anti-virus and it gave a clean chit. It just consumed a negligible space and being a freeware nothing popped out often telling me to buy a premium version or anything similar so. 98% of the files were restored perfectly. So without hesitation you can go ahead downloading the software. Bookmark this page and once the photo or video is restored give us your feedback with a smiling face as response below.
