As soon as you notice the problem, try very hard to avoid writing anything to the partition until you've run the application.

I don't really see the point with your response on my response. All i say is
that probably the majority on this list don't use Windows and probably don't
want to pay $40 when there is other good software that you can run for
free without restrictions so for most people here Handy recovery is
not the best tool for the job.
I don't say it's not a good software or that i speak for everybody on the list.
With your response it looks like you think that i think linux can't have
commercial software and i think that FOSS is the golden and only path, well
i don't. You must have read something between the line that i don't ment.
