    What file recovery utility do you recommend for files that are mysteriously disappearing from a Windows 7 x64 hard drive?

    File recovery utilities are basically aimed at files which have been accidentally erased or corrupted. If you have files which you think have disappeared it is more likely that they are being stored in some place other then you expect or are set to be hidden or stored in a hidden folder. If you give more information about which files/types are involved and in what circumstances you think they have disappeared we might be able to offer more advice and support.
