Preferred Solution: Data Recovery For Help Me!!64-Bit Cpu Computer and windows7

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

Unfortunately my disk is broken completely and I am not able to boot it anymore. Is there a way to download somewhere the data from the recovery partition?

My Model: Satellite A660-16Z (italian model)
http://www.toshiba.it/discontinued-p...lite-a660-16z/

Operating System: Windows 7

Next I tried to order from the web
https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
the recovery image, but after inserting the serial number, the web-system shows me the message:

For your device no recovery medium can be ordered, because it comes either not from the region of Toshiba Europe, or it is too old for this service


thanks in advance
Markus

A:Satellite A660 Windows7 home recovery data needed

The notebook belongs definitely to European series so the only plausible reason why you cannot order the recovery disk is: notebook is too old.
In such case you can install only a clean Windows 7 system. The essential drivers are available on the Toshiba EU driver page and could be installed after the system installation.

Introduction
My niece apparently fell victim to a fake AV program on March 28, since the that's the date her calendar was stuck on and all directory entries end on that date. I believe that she then was hoodwinked into using the fake data recovery program. Unfortunately, she failed to mention the problem until this Monday, so I'm way behind on trying to fix it. I managed to clear up a few things by using Ad-aware, Spybot S&D and Housecall before running HijackThis. All of those programs were utilized by downloading them onto a DVD onto my laptop and running them from the DVD, which then was completely wiped clean by her computer. While I haven't yet tried this procedure to run the other programs listed in Read This First, I have a preliminary question:
As I shut down her computer for the last time, I noted that her D: directory is called "Data" and is almost full, apparently with gaming stuff. Do I need to do a separate repeat of all the programs on that drive?

​Thanks for any answer you could provide to the above question while I'm downloading and, I hope, running the other programs.

So, this is a long one.
 
Grandma has two HDDs, one with a win10 install (Borked, long story.) and one with a win7 install. We took the computer to Geek Squad as the win7 instance was BSODing with an error that I couldn't figure out. Sounds great, right? They couldn't figure it out either, so we took the box back home, hooked it up, and...it boots into Geek Squad's analysis software. Okay then. Turns out, they left their disk in the DVD drive of the box by accident. I decided to run a SMART scan, which turned up 500 bad sectors on the win10 disk, and ~5-10 on the win7 disk. <PanicTime> So, 2 new HDDs ordered, and professional data recovery slated for the win10 instance, but in the meantime, I used ddrescue to transfer all the data from the win7 drive to a new drive. However, when I put this new drive in the box and booted, it did not go into win7, a BSOD, or even a windows recovery screen. It merely sat blinking a "_". I tried using a win7 install disk in recovery mode, but for some reason that says that there is no OS on the new win7 drive, and when I tried using Advanced System Options to get into recovery/repair mode, that option was not on the list. What can I do to hopefully fix this win7 instance? Even getting it back to the partially booting then BSODing state that we took it to Geek Squad in would be fine at this point. Thank you in advance for your help! :D

My problem is this, I am a student at Heald college working on my Network Systems Admin degree. The Church I attend doesn't have a full time IT guy, just one of the guys who more like a hobbiest. The problem is, that their main computer stopped booting into XP. Once it got to splash screen it would freeze up, even in safemode. They called me, because I have helped some of the single moms at church upgrade their computers.

I find out the partition table is either corrupt or data is damaged, my best guess. So I take the drive, hook it to my own, move over all the important file and burn to DVD, so I thought. Take it back and do a reinstall hoping to get it up and running. That really didn't work. In the All users folders there are two folders I can't get access to Financial and the Teresa, Access Denied. Thinking I had everthing on DVD backed up I just format the HDD and do fresh install. The guy who set up their network finishes up. two days later Oct 2 I get a call saying those two folder are not on the DVD Financial and Teresa and they contain all of the church's financial info.

Is it possible to recover that DATA that was formatted over or are they basically screwed? I will be there tonight trying to use a recovery program, but I really could use use some serious help.

Sorry for the long post, wanted to make sure that you had the full story.

yeah you can. go and download Get Data Back for NTFS/FAT32 depending on the file system. I formated my harddrive a while back and forgot to move some stuff off of it. It recovered it all.

The computer I have been using for 4 1/2 years (an E-Machines running XP) has finally died. Not sure what happened, but I can't even get it to turn on. It's as dead as dead can be.

Being the not-so-bright computer guy that I am, I haven't done a back-up in ages, and I have a lot of valuable info/files/music on the hard drive. My brother had said that I can "store" my files on his computer until I get a new one.

One problem; I can't get anything off the hard drive if it doesn't come on, right? Or is there a way of pulling info off the HD even when a computer is powered down, so to speak?

Any info, links, suggestions, and/or whatever elese would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

I have 2 problems, mine is recovering data from a DVD-R & a friend is looking for my help in recovering data from a "corrupted" Flash Drive.

I was burning data on a DVD-R multiple sessions disk when my Burner crapped out while using Nero. I now have a new Burner & when I go back into this disk I can only read data from my 1st session when I compare the #s from Nero's disk info tool, however it also shows that session 5 is still open?? but I cannot read anything from sessions 2, 3 & 4. Looking around I spotted CD Recovery Tool Box Free 1.1.7 is there anything more recent and or better that would let me try to recover the data on this disk. The data in session 5 is still on my HD but I would like to be able to recover the data in the other sessions, worst possible case even just the file names would be a small plus.

Now for the Flash Drive. It is a Lexar 8 Gig & what supposedly happened is that Peter lent it to a fellow employee so he could extract some data (probably a mistake). When he got it back a few minutes later & tried to use it all he got was a message that it was corrupted. As it has all of his product codes, phone numbers & personal sales data for the last year he is really desperate to try & recover the data. He does not have a computer of his own, so he has no backup (another bad idea). He has gotten a new Flash Drive a Sony 8 Gig, but I have told him that he better go out & get a 2nd one to use as a back... Read more

You can do this from an elevated Command Prompt using:

My efi bios lists:
windows boot manager with efi label

Thinking it's a boot sequence problem I tried all possible combinations as well as the probable. In some cases I get missing bootmgr of course from the HDD and the familiar "this version of windows is incompatible with the system......." The most successful attempt and the error msg "image created using efi and this uses bios" resulted from any combination which had the non efi dvd ram before the hdd

This follows a virgin install of Win7/64pro and a successful backup to an expansion drive. The original win7 drive was replaced with an identical but empty target drive.

You can't install Windows on the same partition as the data without wiping out the data.

But you could do this:

Shrink the partition containing the data if it isn't full.

That would create "unallocated space".

Then make a new partition from that unallocated space.

Then install Windows to the new partition.

Whether it's practical in your case depends on full the drive is. If it's a 500 GB partition, with only 10 GB free, you couldn't shrink it enough to hold Windows.

But if it's a 500 GB partition with only 200 being used, you could shrink by 300, make a 300 GB new partition, and install to it.

But-----fiddling with partitions has some risk to the data. You are best advised to back the data up to some other drive first.

Best tool for the job is probably Partition Wizard.

Today my old problem appears again as Corrupted disc...

So my question is

Hey guys,

My laptop is a HP pavilion dv7 2040eb, originaly bought with Vista on it together with a code which gave me the opportunity to upgrade to Windows7 with a reduction in price. So i have W7 running at this moment.

When I open up the 'Recovery Manager' of HP it tells me that it's meant for Windows Vista and that there is a slight chance that certain apps and drivers won't work no more... (so i didn't go on with the recovery)

Also I made a set of Recovery Disks whit the 'Recovery Manager' while i was running Windows7. But now i don't know if my computer burned Windows7 on the disks or Vista :s

I'm just worried because the factory setting was Vista, but i replaced it with Windows7 and I'm not smart enough to see which software i burned on the disk

I realy want to put W7 back on it because it's much better than Vista...

A:Minitool Power Data Recovery or Runtime Get Data Back, which

Hi

Both are good programs and i would recommend purchasing both ( if you can afford ). Both has it's own pros and cons.
"GetDataBack" is good at virtual reconstruction of damage/unrecognizable file systems but i personally found it weak at recovering image files. It recovers images but most of them seems to be corrupted in my testings. Also you need to purchase seperate versions for FAT and NTFS ( GetDataBack simple is garbage ).

On the other hand, "Power data Recovery" works with both FAT and NTFS and it is better at recovering image files. Another proven tools is "R-Studio" which has quiet good reputation among DR professionals. It's user interface is not newbie friendly but has lot's of options which no other tools offers.

i can now be able to see all the information on the 1 whole NTFS partition, but the problem is that i can't be able to recover it.
when ever i open the logical drive i can see all the information and most of the information is stack up in a "free space" which is around 33gb which i can be able to see has all the information that i need.
i have tried to recover the free space but its only copied to the location that i specify and no recoveries are made.
recovering the files by type/ name has bore no fruits.

a freind told me i have to curve out that area and use data extractors to get the information out of that area (freee space).

the information in that drive are sql data bases and zip files. whats the header for sql.

Dear Friends.

I'm not certain this is in the best forum, but it is a Windows 7 computer
I was trying to do another sets of DVD's from existing MP4 files from a SanDisk Ultra 32GB card. These would then be used with DVD Flick and ImgBurn to make the DVD's. The first(2) DVD's worked well but somehow a few of the files were not copied entirely. So, I was redoing these again to make certain I had ALL the files for the next (2) DVD's.
These are files my older brother entrusted to me for me to convert them to a DVD format. They are files of his daughters nearly entire basketball season [frames] of about 70 files and were sentimental to him and his daughter.
I feel personally responsible to correct this if it is at all possible!? It could get ugly
It was an honest error on my part as I mistakenly deleted what was titled Video 100 on the SanDisk which contained all these MP4 files. I didn't realize I was removing them from the SanDisk. I'm hoping there is a free date recovery app I could use for this one application so that an expensive license would not be required!?

A:reinstall windows7 using friend's recovery disk

Well...you need to understand just what recovery disks are.
 
They may rely on files which are on a hidden partition on the system's hard drive which was originally installed...they may not.
 
If the system is not the exact same model...using recovery dsiks from a different system is just an invitation to more frustration.  If you look at those retailers selling "recovery disks", you will see that they definitely are system specific...there is no general reovery disks which can be applied to different system models.
 
I also imagine that using someone else's disks...will result in the Windows license applicable to the disks used on another system...will show up on that list which Microsoft maintains for known compromised license keys.

I have a question about this.

Right now I will upgrade my Vista laptop to Windows 7 . I already did it before with the RC and worked great.

Anyways there are certain functions on my laptop I use . So that's why I didnt do a clean install. But if there is any problem and I need to reinstall windows. I will have to install Vista first . Till SP1 is the best I believe and then again Windows 7 .
A big hassle if you ask me?

Is there a way to make a bootable DVD or something of my laptop once I upgraded to windows 7 and I take kind of a snapshot of that moment.
or something else'

Like when i got my laptop I had to make 2 DVD's so I could reinstall windows. Was hoping I could do the same with Windows7 somehow.

Another thing is. I have an English Windows Vista on a machine but will get a Dutch windows 7 upgrade. I don't think I can upgrade from a English to Dutch right? Although the upgrade is Ultimate?

I also can install an English version of Ultimate and use the key from the Dutch ultimate? or is the key from the box really only for the DVD that's in the box ?

thank you for your answers.

You choose your language upon installation,i did anyway.
And microsoft have language updates also.

I think as long as the key is for "ultimate" it will work.

Any ideas(besides buying a recovery CD or new OS) please help ASAP. Have college work due end of week.

Plz Help!!

I deleted a few files like a year ago.. i placed them in the program files of other software in C: . Eventually when i uninstalled that software the folder was gone. Is it possible to recover it in anyway??

A:Recover deleted file without recovery softwares in windows7

A year ago is a very long time. Most likely Windows has long since over written that area of the disk to a point that anything that you would get would be very incomplete and unuseable.

Yesterday I was trying to put my Packard Bell iMedia 1601 running Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 to sleep and I got a blue screen with the following error codes:

STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x835C7A98, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)

Following that, I could not boot in any mode further than the Microsoft Windows XP loading screen, at which point the same blue screen was displayed.

Today I decided to go ahead with a Packard Bell Partial Recovery, which allows you to retain your data. At first the System Restore (on the first screen) and Partial Recovery (on the second screen) options were greyed out, and then System Restore randomly became available, so I tried that, got an error message, clicked "OK" the first time and closed it the second time and both times it restarted. Then Partial Recovery was suddenly available.

So I went ahead with that and when it came to the screen where it asked me what user I wanted to retain the only option was "No Profile". Thinking that my data would still be in the place the instructions said it would be (C:\documents and settings\[Chosen user name]) I went ahead with "No Profile". The recovery ran and the computer restarted, and Windows started up again as if it was the first time I'd ran the computer. So I created the two user accounts that had previously existed and then logged in with mine. A... Read more

clarification - does your documents and settings folder only shows your new accounts?

do you have two window folders? Try a windows search for your old profile folder and see what it comes up with.

Hi,

I have been using a Kingston 1gb data traveler to store work however as I was saving my word document to go home Word 2007 crashed and restarted itself, it did not however bring up any autorecover options. I therefore thought everything was ok and pulled out the USB. When I tried to plug this in again it says 'USB device not recognized' This device may have malfunctioned etc. It then proceeds to install the USB as an unknown device and appear like this in the device manager.

I desperately need to recover this data, I was designing a website and had 25 pages of text on the USB stick.

What I've Tried

Plugging the USB in another machine. This bought up exactly the same error

Downloading a Data Doctor Recovery Pen Drive tool. This however did not recognise a USB as being in the system and thus did not work.

Is there anything I can do to rescue this data?

P.s. I use Vista 32-bit Business.

I have a 300gb Maxtor Drive partitioned into 4 drives...the OS on the hd was Windows Vista...While i was reinstalling XP i accidently formatted the whole drive because it didnt show the rest of the partitions on the screen...by the time i realized what i just did it was already 5% formatted...so i decided to stop it by turning off my computer...

i was wondering if the data (music, files, pictures, etc etc) is still recoverable...if so, what are the necessary steps that i should take to recover it...my friend sent me OnTrack 6.3 EasyRecovery Pro and i went out and bought Search and Recover 4...should i do a clean format on the drive and then run a data recovery software or should i run the software with the drive being 5% formatted...

if someone can lead me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it...thanks

My aim is to have a Windows 7 bootable cd as Microsoft is going to kill Windows XP on April 2014.

I have Vaio laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit with 4 recovery discs that I created but I haven't used it so far as Vaio never gave any trouble.

Is it illegal or possible to create Windows 7 cd from my Vaio laptop Recovery Discs so that I can use on my another desktop that has Windows XP SP3 as Windows XP era ends on April 2014 ?
 

A:Is it illegal or possible to create a bootable Windows7 cd from Vaio Recovery Discs ?

The recovery disk is only for that one Vaio laptop only. It won't work on any other machine as contains the operating system, drivers for that machine and activation key. It not only wouldn't work but would also be illegal. Why are you so concerned about XP coming to an end? It doesn't mean XP is going stoping working. It's just the end to support. Get a backup program and do I regular backup so you can get it back up and running should something should happen.

Hi All

I installed Windows 7 on a formerly Vista Business computer. Now I would like to know, does a clean installation of Windows 7 automatically create a recovery partition or backup? Or do I need to format the Recovery Drive D(from the Vista installation) and make a backup on that drive (D)?

Thank You

Hello,

Yesterday morning when I turned on my laptop, I got the "BOOTMGR missing error". My laptop was working with no problems till the night before, so I don't know what happened. Anyway, I tried everything recommend on this forum and elsewhere to fix the problem. But nothing seems to work.

Since I don't have any important stuff on the laptop, I don't mind reinstalling Windows 7 if that would solve the issue. But I don't have a windows 7 installation CD. I have a Samsung R540 which came pre-installed with Windows 7. I went to the Microsoft recovery centre and tried to validate my windows product key but it is not validating.. Is this because my Windows is pre-installed?

Also from the command prompt I can see that I have a recovery partition. When I start the laptop, it says "press F2 for setup and F4 for recovery." But while F2 takes me to the BIOS screen, F4 doesn't do anything. While searching online, someone suggested that the recovery partition must be made active. So I went to command prompt and made it active and tried again. But it has made no difference.

So now I don't what else to do.. I don't really care about any data. I just want the laptop to work.. Is there no hope for me?? I would really appreciate any help
Thanks in advance

Hiya... I managed to lose one of my HDD's with all my multimedia on it and have been trying unsuccessfully to regain it with PCINSPECTOR.The HDD ISNT where my windows is installed and has become corrupted; something happened with the partition and it went kablooey.The problem i seem to be having with PCINSPECTOR is that it comes up with; for example "Cluster386.MP3" and it doesn't work. Is it something wrong with how im using PCI or something like that. I scan for drives...Choose "NONAME on FIXED DISK 2", scan for logical drives... and withing the first ten seconds it comes up with two partitions... Choosing the second one i get these files and the first one nothing. Scanning them for FAT. So basically am i using "PCI FR" properly am i doing something wrong and/or, is there a cheap, better alternative with results?Patch.Sorry guys bt i managed to fix this with the use of a different program... Awesome program I'm gonna plug it now "R Studio," well worth the investment... My Multimedia was worth the $80 odd...

I have had this problem many times before, when i hook up xbox and play xbox live our internet connection gets messed up and doesnt work. I set a restore point before i played the last time and when the internet stopped working i restored it to the point and it started working again on our main computer where the router is, but my computer in my room which is wireless is not working anymore. I formatted my hard drive on that computer hoping that it would fix the problem but it didnt. I have tried to get it working and have had no luck. The connection says that it is good but the internet does not work at all. It says "Cannot Find Server" when i try to get on internet explorer. The main computer is sending information but mine is not receiving the info.

Help me please

I would like to recover the affected files to their original state, i have searched the internet over and no one seems to have the solution documented

currently i am trying to download QuickView Plus (Version 8), i have tried all aplications i can come across, including recover my files, winhex, get data back for ntfs, and r-studio.

i am honestly intrested in documenting the solution to this problem, and am intrested in suggestins on the best way to approach this

looking forward to your favourable reply.

A:DATA Error [47 0F 94 93 F4 K5] Data Recovery

You will most likely need to restore those files from a backup. But don't do anything until you've made sure the virus is gone. Don't want to reinfect the files.
