Somewhen in 1991 I used Norton Utilities under DOS for this. Now Norton Utilities under Windows, or any multitasking OS, do not have access to hard disk but only to trash bin. I tried to use the old NU under DOS but during saving unerased file the DOS hangs up. I do not think that it is because of NU, because I cannot run anything from the old DOS programs. I have AMD processor, 256 MB RAM, 80GB HD and it seems to me it is confusing DOS which was created for 3-6 orders less volumes. Anybody knows what can I purchase/get free for unerasing, at our days?

Norton should still be able to unerase floppies. Unless the floppy has been written to since the erasure occurred. That's because the actual "erase" is done by flipping a bit on the disk's directory entry to make it invisible and returning the FAT info to the free FAT pool. NU would simply flip the bit back. You can boot a "DOS" NU by simply inserting your Norton CD and booting from CD, but the Norton Trash bin should have a menu option to locate recoverable files without dropping out of Windows.
Some people, when well-known sources tell them that fire will burn them, don't put their hands in the fire.
Some people, being skeptical, will put their hands in the fire, get burned, and learn not to put their hands in the fire.
And some people, believing that they know better than well-known sources, will claim it's a lie, put their hands in the fire, and continue to scream it's a lie even as their hands burn down to charred stumps.
Well, it did not work. It is important because I have lost all in my life, it is hard disk and I try, at least, to recover what were at diskettes I have Norton System Works 5.0 (with Norton Utilities and Unerase Wizard inside). No, Norton Trash Bin doesn’t determine anything on diskette. And how could it be, I wonder, since Windows’ Recycle Bin is just a repository for “deleted” files, that are really not deleted but moved and stored there. The idea of multi-tasking Oses is to restrict any applications from direct access to disks. Booting from CD gives me 3 options: Microsoft Windows98 Startup Menu ================================== 1)Norton Antivirus: Emergency Disk Programs After choosing: Creating Emergency Disk or Emergency Virus Repair 2)Normal Boot (it is to Windows98) After choosing: “Remove the CD containing Norton Antivirus from your CD-ROM drive, then press Ctrl+alt+Del to restart your computer”. Hmmm, very helpful 3)View more information <b>Please tell me what kind of Software do you use that detects deleted files on diskettes. </b>
