Default Data recovery

Need some help, PC boffins.

I used a recovery program on my PC a good while ago to get back deleted uni work. Now I need to try and recover documents from the mrs' grandad's laptop, mostly legal and financial stuff as he went mental with a UTI and deleted a load of stuff lol. However, I was thinking that installing the recovery prog to his laptop will maybe overwrite what we're trying to recover, so is there a way to install the recovery prog to my machine and run it on his drives?

Also, any recommendations on which prog to use? Been that long I cant remember what I used.

Advice much appreciated. Cheers!

I can't remember the tech terms but surely you can plug his drives in your machine as slaves and run the software from your machine that way? I did it many moons ago and it worked sort of I think.

I'd use something like this http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/compon...28753-pdt.html
(You'd need to check his drive would fit tho) with this https://www.piriform.com/recuva

You can plug his hard drive to your of and use it as a slave drive. Varies from drive to drive, but there's a good tutorial on youtube.

most programs designed to recover data will run in standalone mode where it can run from a USB stick or somesuch, so nothing needs to be written to the disk you're recovering from.

You're all correct pretty much. Data is my actually deleted straight away, the portion of disk is just marked to be used again.

I would slave it to another computer personally as a preventative measure.

I was wrong back in 1996 I think (somewhere round there). But it's rare.

Not sure you could user the word "work" tbh. Attend is probably more apt.

I don't know much about it but there is maybe software through which you can recover the deleted data.

There is no point, I was merely looking at the funny. Other than that I'm good, I have 4 separate hard drives backing up about 2.5 Tb. Data recovery is irrelevant in my house.

HELL YEAH CAPS LOCK M7

Yo!

I have found quite interesting page last week.
It's improbable because I'm watching sports show FREE!

Really big number of sports stations and archived of star events!

look at that... right there tnt Live Sport

Nice! That makes me very happy
