App Icon for "File Scavenger" a data recovery application for Windows.
The original idea (10+ years ago) was an app to "scavenge" data that was emptied from the Windows Recycle Bin.

We want a standard Windows app icon (48x48/32x32/16x16 256-color). preferably (but not required) with the letters FS (short for File Scavenger) with a picture of a computer hard disk. They should have a 3-D semi-realistic look similar to standard icons such as "My Computer", "My Network", "Recycle Bin", .... The icon should clearly convey what the app does, "to recover lost data". This type of apps is not used very often. A user may use it once or twice a year or so. It helps if he/she looks at the icon and can guess what it's for. Please look at our current icon for a general idea. However, we are open to new suggestions.
Our clients are computer users with all skill levels and from all over the world (US, Europe, Asia, ...). Kids using the software to recover pictures from digital cameras, detectives using it to do computer forensics, ...
