A live disk for file recovery?


I was just wondering if anyone knows of a file recovery live disk? Not only for Linux drives but also windows. Where it can read the "deleted" files that have been cleared from the "trash bin" as well.

Thanks,
Kyle

Preferably support for all would be nice. I know the NTFS is not 100% but maybe undelete and save the files to a FAT32. What I plan on doing is using a live disk as a support when I work on computers. Mainly they use XP and have NTFS. I could always mount my USB drive that is FAT32 to save the files and have XP access and copy them back later.

Thank,
Kyle
