A couple of FREE data restore utilities

I came across a couple of new data restore utilities that look very promising.

The first is called PhotoRec. I have seen lots of photo recovery programs but this one is open source and looks to be a very full featured program. I haven't tested it yet but I will definitely come back to this one the next time i'm in need.

The second is called TestDisk. The feature list is quite impressive, and again it's open source. This one is a hard drive recovery program. It focuses on recovering partitions, and boot sectors. Again I haven't tested it but I like the look of the feature list and will try it soon.
