My friend’s pen drive partition has been deleted. Now he can’t make a new partition and all his data is gone. I need to recover a jpeg file, how can I do it?

    Hello, the software that has given me a lot of recovery success even after reformatting and a new system install is Active@File  Recovery.  It is a paid software though but well worth the money.  You can download the trial and after doing a scan, it will tell you what it can recover. I think in your case, it would be an overkill though...:

    You could try using Recuva which is free.  This is a good free software that gets good results with deleted files.  I do not know what results you would get after a deleted volume/partition:

    I would try any of the following option below:

    EASEUS Data recovery wizard:

    After the first option, I would say the next best option would be testdisk.  It is free software but it runs from command terminal:
