SD card recovery issue

Recently I had to help a friend recover some important files that she had accidentally deleted from her SD card. She was in a panic, and don’t know how to deal with this problem. Here is what I did:

Firstly, I checked the recycling bin on her computer, but she had already emptied the recycle bin. I don't know why she did that and so that didn't help.

Secondly, I tried a software which I searched from Google. The software was called Card Data Recovery. It has Windows version as well as Mac version designed separately for Windows and Mac users. I downloaded and ran Card Data Recovery for Windows on her SD card. It took a few minutes to scan her entire SD card. However, the program is a shareware, I could only preview the deleted files on the task list, if I want to recover the lost data, i need to pay for $19.95. Can you recommend me some free nice SD card file recovery program?

You could try Recuva (Free version) from Piriform.

Recuva Free
