TestDisk is a popular software tool which helps users to recover their data. You do not have to pay for it. TestDisk is an open source and has GNU General Public License. It was created mainly to help restore lost partitions and/or restore the bootability of computer disks if this problem is caused programmatically, by viruses\worms or human errors (such as accidental deletion of the Partition Table). You can restore the Partition Tables with TestDisk without any problems. In addition, the functionality of the application is also available for users who do not have additional knowledge in the hardware and software of the computer.

Availability
TestDisk is suitable for both beginners and experts. For people who have little or zero knowledge in data recovering, TestDisk can help to bring together particular information about non-bootable disks which can then be used for suplementary analysis. Those who are already familiar with this kind of work should find TestDisk as a convenient programm for performing a data recovery.

TestDisk does not depend on specific platforms, OS and file systems. It can be installed on Windows, MAC OS, Linux and others. The utility can work with most existing file
systems, including BeFS, FAT, Linux ext2, Linux Swap, Mac partition map and many others.
