Need a good file recovery program.

I had to reformat my PC totally yesterday and I’m wondering if there is any decent file recovery software that will allow me to keep the folders as they were pre-format.

Anyone know any good stuff?

In practice you’re hosed. There exist programs that might be able to pick up bits and pieces, but the full mess is unlikely, plus you’re just as likely to recover whatever it was that made you format.

You generally make backups before the format because formatting generally means that you erase all your data D:
