TIPS: How To Save Your Lost / Deleted / Formatted Data [Memory Recovery]

Hello everyone! I bet most of you've ever encountered a moment when you lost important files in HD / flash disk / memory card, but you didn't know how to recover your lost files.. T___T don't you?
Different from my usual makeup-related posts, today I'd share my tips in recovering your lost / deleted / formatted data or files! I recommend you to try / download these software first, just in case you'll need these software in the future! You'll thank me later ^.~

I have googled, downloaded and tried several software and I found that these FREE software are the best so far! Hopefully this post would be helpful enough for you! :D

Useful Software
to save your lost / deleted / formatted files

1. Pandora Recovery

Pandora Recovery allows you to find and recover recoverable deleted files from NTFS and FAT-formatted volumes. Pandora Recovery will scan your hard drive and build an index of existing and deleted files and directories (folders) on any logical drive of your computer with supported file format. 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:
- full or partial file name,
- file size,
- file creation date, or
- file last accessed date

On top of that, Pandora Recovery allows you to preview deleted files of certain type (images and text files) without performing recovery. This feature becomes really important if you are forced to recover deleted files to the same drive. Currently you can preview files having several image file types (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, ICO,TIF, TGA, PCX, WBMP, WMF, JP2, J2K, JBG, JPC, PGX, PNM, RAS, CUR) and several text file types (TXT, LOG, INI, BAT, RTF, XML, CSS). Quick Viewer allows you preview file contents as text if it cannot find appropriate viewer for it. To use quick viewer you can select deleted file and or click the Quick Viewer icon or right click on deleted file and select 'Quick View'. Quick View will then display a preview of deleted file. 

Finally, Pandora Recovery allows you to recover deleted files, without any limitations on application's end. Note that successful recovery might not be possible - if the original location has been reused by operating system to store different content the integrity of the original content has not been preserved and the recovered data will most likely be corrupted.

Next, last week I faced a moment when I lost some important files in memory card, due to human-errors. Those files are video files of my very first makeup video tutorial, and I didn't want to re-do it, since it's quite tiring >_< B-b-but, I couldn't let them go.. T____T
So I tried to do a research about "How to recover memory card" etc, and there were several software but they're only trial version, I need to pay for full version in order to recover my important files :|
Gladly I eventually found this software! *throw confetti*
