DiskDigger

The trusted data recovery software for Windows. Created around 2010 and downloaded over 100 million times since then, DiskDigger can recover your lost or deleted photos, videos, documents, and most other types of files from your hard disks, memory cards, USB flash drives, or any other media your PC can read.

DiskDigger works by either scanning the file system(s) on your disk and looking for files that are marked as deleted, or by performing a thorough carving scan of the entire disk independently of the file system, and recovering files using a powerful heuristic analysis.
