    How to recover a deleted file in 2 minutes.

    I've found a great article about how to recover your deleted file using simple steps. This was done in FAT32 environment and you can try it on NTFS but this would be too advance for non geeks.

    A floppy disk is composed of 2879 sectors:

    0: Boot Track
    1-9: First FAT
    10-18: Second FAT
    19-32: Disk Directory
    33-2879: Data Area

    For any FAT 12 and 16 volumes, the directory listing is always located right after the second FAT and has a fixed length. Under FAT32, the root directory is treated like a normal directory, and can be relocated and expanded in size. The FAT32 starting cluster is located in the boot sector at offset 2Ch (Most of the time, it points to a location after the second fat anyway). - via GeeksAreSexy.

    Please be carefull while trying this tips, you might end up with a full corrupted drive. Just try this tip on a floopy disk not on your hard drive. If you want to know more on how to recover deleted files on NTFS drive, read this nice articles about it. This tip is the way to recover your files. If you want to recover your files, use a real file recovery.
