    Hi,

    I want to get back a text file I had on my hard drive in August last year.
    I have reformatted my PC since then.

    Is this possible?


    Thanks.

    This is very much dependent on how much you have used the computer since,
    and how many times the sector on your hard drive with the deleted file has
    been overwritten. There are specialist data recovery companies out there but
    they are very expensive and dont guarantee results, to be honest i doubt the
    file is available on your hard drive, but if you really need it then
    contact one of the data recovery companies and they will advise.

    There are services that will try to do it for a fee. You can find them
    online by Googling file recovery. There are also some programs that are
    supposed to do it but don't know if they work.
