[Wolves] NTFS deleted file recovery

Sorry, this may sound OT but I have really messed up and deleted most of my
dads lecture notes and presentations from an NTFS partition.   Honest guv,
if he hadn't moved them to my designated "open  target for space  saving"
area  then  it would have been OK.

Has anyone got experience of recovering files in this situation?   I have
used a 30quid solution (i think is called PC Tools) that identified over 130
of his files as being in 'excellent but deleted' condition, however it only
succeeded in actually recovering about 1 in every 14 files.

There appear to be several Knoppix based systems that come packed with
forensic tools and purport to facilitate recovery from NTFS drives, however
I am struggling to see the funny side of using them.

If anyone can help me to dig free of this hole, I will be very grateful.   I
have no desire to send this disk of to an expensive "specialist" as it would
bankrupt me just to get their initial appraisal.   That said, if anyone can
make the time to actually succeed, I will pay a reward......

thanks in advance, Leo
