    Default Need to recover files on FAT16?

    Hi people, I have a system that has FAT16 file system on it. I have that file system on that for some reason so I don’t need to upgrade on that….but recently I had some files deleted and now I need to get them back. They are important for my official use and hold great importance. I know that there is software for recovery but since I have a FAT16 file system I guess that all won’t work on that.

    Please let me know the solution for this problem.

    Use google to search for - FAT16 deleted file recovery?

    That would be where I would start.

    This is now a bit problem….since you are using an older file system I guess you are right…everything wont go on this one. But, I hope that you have tried some….before going on the hunt for a new one. In our office we Recover Lost Files by a software that supports FAT 12, FAT 16, FAT 32, NTFS and NTFSS file systems. This one really works well and is simple to manage… don’t need to be an expert for that. This will be handy in solving your problem.

    Hope this will get the data back!!!!
