In the task to restore deleted files, vista users may feel that there can be no problems. . . and usually, they are correct. But really, it doesn't matter what operating system your computer happens to be using, as today's data retrieval software can restore deleted files, vista or not. The fact of the matter is that lost data doesn't hide out in your operating system - it hides out inside your hard drive.
Even if your machine was ransacked by a horrendous virus you might've contracted from somewhere online, and you totally reformatted your hard drive an then reinstalled Windows, it's all good. . . the data is all still there, believe it or not. Data never really leaves your system after all, and this is why people from the FBI or CIA can nab anything they want to get their greedy little hands on, even if the computer in question has been completely purged of all data - it's all still there somewhere, and only needs to be coaxed out of hiding. It's all in the software. You can restore deleted files - vista or 98 - it makes no difference.
This can be a reason for many to relax and have no fear, as even those with the more antique types of computers, such as those that just aren't capable of handling anything newer than Windows 98, can still restore deleted files, vista not being a prerequisite. Today's data retrieval software is more than capable of handling the task, and it makes no difference what operating system your computer is using, plain and simple.
