    You should google about it first. Since it is actually meant for recovering bad sectors and hard-drive failures and I've only seen recovering files on a formatted drive with SpinRite mentioned in 1-2 places, then I cannot be sure that SpinRite can do it.

    Ok, the RecoveryFix program found most of it, but I can't save any of the recovered data. Is there a free program which recovers data consistantly and save the data?

    You would be very lucky if you found one. This is a commercial area, where recovery programs cost a penny if you any recovery is to be made.
    That's just the way it is. Sorry.

    There's a live disk based on Knoppix that is said to recover most files but I forgot the name. Here's another one that does roughly the same:
    http://ubuntu-rescue-remix.org/
    Some proficiency at the *nix CLI is a pre.

    Is this another version of Linux, but with working recovery tools, or just the recovery tools?
