Flash disc data recovery. After making a boot disk on the drive

Flash disc data recovery. After making a boot disk on the drive

(OP)
Hey guys

Firstly what happened: I by accident created a boot-able Linux version from a Image on my girlfriends work Flash-drive.

Flash drive works. Drive has been repartitioned followed this tried to create the boo-table drive.http://elinux.org/RPi_Easy_SD_Card_Setup
Used the "easy way"

Ok so I am sure software like smartundelete will recover about 70% of the drive since only about 20-25% was written over. However what software would be able to recover the rest.

more info:
Device hasn't been booted from.
Mostly recovering Jpeg,PNG and HTML,PHP,javascript,css,pdfs oh and some photoshop files and doc files.

Any help will be appreciated. If I need to send it to a place to recover is there any good places in South Africa?

Regards
Overklog

RE: Flash disc data recovery. After making a boot disk on the drive

Hopefully, the original copy of these files is still on the pc at work. . .

I reaslonably sure that if it has been written over, it will not be recoverable by UNDELETE or anu other utility . . .

Did you ever resolve this? Please share what happened.
