Preferred Solution: recover deleted file

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.)

Hi,
Have you explored the contents of the Recycle bin?
If it's not there, I find Restoration works well, it's free and free of adware etc:

I have inadvertantly deleted a personal file (containing data and pictures files) from my laptop.I tried to use recovery programs to recover at least the pictures. I have recovered some of the files containing the pictures, but cannot open these pictures . When trying to open each picture (of the recovered ones) I've got the following note:"Paint cannot read this file. This is not a valid bitmap file, ot its format is not currently supported"I checked the System Restore and found that a restore point is available to the date prior the delete.Can System Restore recover the deleted file?Note: The file was installed on the Desktop (before being deleted).I am using Windows XP ProThanks for your assitance.

A:Recover A Deleted File

The restore point may work for you, or it may not. Persoanlly, that's a tough call, because you risk erasing the deleted version where you can't retrieve it, and you risk the possibility that the restore point won't work, and at the same time, erased any possible chance of you recovering what was accidentally deleted.If possible, the best way you is to hook the hard drive in question to another computer as the slave. And then use the other computer to get the data off, because you stand the risk of that sector of the hard drive to be over-written with data if you add/install a program to the computer. It's not always true.. but that risk still exists.If you don't have access to another computer then you'll want to use a few FREE ones that are out there. Look in the Commercial FREEWare forum here on this site. Sorry, I forget the link right off hand.But whatever you do, don't keep deleting and (or) modifying the hard drive if you want your data back. By all means, just download what you need, and do as less installing/deleting on that computer as possible.And then again, if you feel that the Restore Point will bring back the data, then all I can say is go for it. But remember to weigh out your odds, no matter which route you take.a. connect the hard drive to another computer, and do it that way (safest known method)b. install a program(s) on the computer in question, and run it from there (risk/a workable method)c. Use the Windows Restore Point (ris... Read more

Hi,

I've done a stupid stupid stupid thing and lost an important excel spreadsheet that I last used about two weeks ago. I've been having various performance problems (freezes/crashes) and was advised to run "Malwarebytes' anti-malware".

Before I did this, I backed up all my data to a CD-ROM and then deleted the files from my laptop. Then I went ahead and ran the software. The good news: my laptop seems to be behaving itself far better now. The bad news: somehow I seem to have missed this one file when backing up. I've got all my family photos, lots of stuff from work, even old stuff that I'll probably never need again but I thought "What the heck". Yet somehow, I've missed this one spreadsheet. I could kick myself!!

To make matters (probably) worse, I've run CCleaner a couple of times since then, as I was advised that it keeps the laptop clean. I've just looked at some settings there now and it's using "Normal" file deletion as opposed to "Secure", but "Wipe Free Space" is selected. Damn!

I only realised I'd lost the file last night and I have already downloaded some freeware utilities such as "Restoration" and "Undelete Plus", but none of these found the file.

Should I just give up now? Or is there some software that may find a file even after CCleaner has been run.

Grateful for any help.

When files come up in the search, they are listed in numbers, like, 1a55t2r277z12, etc. rather than a name, like "Scans," the one I am looking for. Am I going about the search correctly,and if so, how do I idenfiy the folder I am looking for?

Hi again, I am trying to recover a Word doc that was accidentally deleted from a folder on my desktop a few minutes ago.

It did not go to the recycling bin and is not in my recent file list in Word.
It also did not come up in any searches I ran anywhere.

Anyone know of any sly ways to try to recover this?

Thanks alot!
 

A:Solved: Recover Deleted File

Firstly do NOT use the PC for anything. Every operation will overwrite the HDD locations of deleted files.

If it did not go into the recycle bin, then a deliberate effort was made to delete it in a manner to make it difficult to recover. Using the PC makes that even more difficult.

Ideally slave the hard drive in another PC, you should never attempt to recover a file on the same drive as it was deleted on (as the recovery software and file extraction will possibly overwrite the deleted file)

Then try PC Inspector from here:

Hello, I need help with recovering a file. When I signed into my Onedrive account, Windows Defender caught a virus. Therefore I quarantined it and deleted it. As I have a current investigation going about a few of my accounts (including Onedrive) being hacked, and being close to being able to prove who did this, I now realize that I should not have deleted the virus, as this is evidence that this hacker is also trying to access my other devices through a virus placed in my Onedrive account. Is there a way that I can determine what the name of this virus was, or to be able to find it again? AVG detected it instantly as well, but I ignored it in AVG and deleted it from Windows Defender. I do not see it anywhere in AVG or in Windows Defender anymore, and it is also not present in the event viewer under Windows Defender. Any help on this topic is appreciated. Thank you.

A:Please help! Recover deleted file from Windows Defender possible?

Comment from the Web 4 years ago.
Windows Defender — where are the Scan Results?
 
Obviously, you are able to see when it last ran by opening Windows Defender and looking at the last scan details on the bottom left. If it detected something, it would alert you and also log it in the 'History' section.
If you want to see more detailed logs, you can view them in Event Viewer > Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Windows Defender > Operational
It will show as 'information' for when it has ran, etc. If it has detected malware, etc. it will show as 'Warning' with a yellow warning sign and details of process, severity, etc. If it's stopped before completion it will also show under a yellow warning sign.

She was working on her latop and thought she was viewing already transferred files on her laptop, when in realty she was still viewing her shared connection to her desktop.

If we can, how do we recover these deleted files. I have checked with trash can on both systems and deleted files and folders are not there.

I looked up in the Microsoft file recovery tutorial and it specifically says that files deleted through a network connection are not recoverable. These files and folders must be sitting in some cache. Where are they and how can I get to them.

Can a deleted file be recovered from an image/clone hard disk?
 

A:recover deleted file from image disk?

Welcome to the Board see7102!

Not sure I quite follow your question. You deleted a file from your hard drive, but had previously cloned the drive to another drive? If so, and the file existed when the clone was done then the file is still on the other drive (unless it was deleted there as well).

Or, did you make an image of the drive and saved the image file someplace? If you made an image, then you may be able to access the file from the image with out having to restore the image. For example Norton Ghost has Ghost Explorer, which will let you pull one file out of an image file. Other imaging programs likely have something similar, but I'm only familiar with Ghost 2003

What software was used to make the image?

I don't know if this is the right section, but here goes:
1) plug your flash drive into your computer
2) 'Open' your Recycle bin by right-clicking on it, and selecting 'Open'
3) click on the file you want to recover (to select it), then right-click on the file, and select 'Restore'

This should restore the file that you want.

A:URGENT HELP - Need to recover a file deleted from the recycle bin!!!

Hi Luke!

There are tools you can use to restore deleted files, but there's no guaranty that you'll be successful. To maximize your chances, stop using the computer. While you're using it, things are being written to the disk all the time and so a deleted piece of data can be overwritten.

Your best bet is to go to another computer, download one of the "recovery" tools and put it on a memory stick or a cd. Then run it on the PC with the deleted file from the cd.

An example of a freeware recovery program is "restoration".

Have you tried Recuva? They are many programs of this type but I trust Piriform (makers of Ccleaner). Whatever program you choose, do it fast! The longer you wait the more chance you have of overwriting the lost data so time is of the essence here. Use your machine as sparingly as possible until you try any recovery software. Of course, the simple fact of downloading any of the programs has the risk of overwriting your lost data.

A:Recover deleted mails

Sorry, you're out of luck

Didn't the "incredimail software" have warnings before you deleted your emails? If it did NOT, uninstall that software, it's unsafe.

You do not state what email client you use, unless it IS "incredimail." If it is Outlook 2002 or 2003, download and use the Microsoft Outlook PST Backup Utility.

It will add Backup to Outlook's File menu.

The backup will run after closing Outlook (you cannot backup PSTs while in-use).

The backup interface allows you to set a backup filename (if you don't want default), and location (path). For path I highly suggest you not use defaults, put your PST backups in a separate location like My Documents, or (better) on another HD. WARNING - you must specify filenames (optional) and paths for each PST, you should have an Outlook.pst & Archive.pst if you do archive your emails.

The backup interface also allows you to schedule when to backup, and the dialog will open on Outlook exit, on schedule. At work I set every 3-days.

At home I do not use MS Office but since I image my D:\APPS05 drive (includes my email client) every month, I can recover from that.

If the photos were never transferred to the computer and were deleted directly from the memory card, there's absolutely no way you can recover it, not that you've lost it. Sorry. If they were deleted from the hard drive, you could try using a program like Recuva or Restoration (both free) to recover them. But you cannot afford to waste time before you do that. There are a lot of free programs that recover it from the memory card too (maybe Restoration and Recuva do that too), but you need to have the card to do that.

A:Recover deleted files

It's possible the filles may still be there. First try to undelete in your recycle bin. If that's a no go, there are a few commercial recovery programs out there. The only way you can possibily undelete files that have already been deleted in the recycle bin is using such a program provided the files have not been overwritten. If you write something to the same disk it doesn't necessarily mean your deleted files have been overwritten.
If a file recovery program doesn't work, they're gone forever.

ALLWAYS back up! :hotbounce

does anyone know how to recover a deleted user profile? and i'm not talking about deleting a user name through "computer management".
fyi....system restore did not work.

A:Recover deleted profile

Hi,

You might be more specific on how and where it got deleted. Like, did you send it to the recyle bin, delete it in an online area, or some document. That would help anyone to better assist you.

RELEVANCY SCORE 49.6

Windows XP w/SP2. I do not use Outlook Express. My e-mail is through my ISP, wmconnect.

PROBLEM: 2 or 3 weeks ago I got a reply to a problem from Nero. It was fairly simple and solved the problem. Then I had to re-install Windows XP and the problem returned, but I had lost the e-mail. And stupid me did not write down the steps that solved the problem. Another e-mail to Nero was answered by a different person who complicated the situation; sent a file I can't open, etc., etc., etc. Apparently Nero is in Germany and English may not be clear to him (her?). Back and forth e-mails have not helped.

Now, I wonder if it is possible to restore that deleted e-mail. Wmconnect, my ISP, says it is impossible, but we constantly hear of investigations involving e-mails recovered from months and even years before, so there must be some way to do it. Does anyone know?

Thanks,
Dick
 

A:Recover deleted e-mail?

As you probably know, wmconnect is AOL related. Their emails are on their servers. So if you deleted it, then it cannot be recovered.

A possible solution.
Chances are not too good if the solution is something unique only to wmconnect or AOL. But you could post the exact problem here and maybe someone will have an answer.
