Preferred Solution: Minitool Power Data Recovery or Runtime Get Data Back, which

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.)

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.

Hello:

I mistakenly formatted a 1 terabyte drive and wish to use Minitool Power Data Recovery to save the data
onto another hard drive while preserving the original directory/folder/files structure. The support page
for this freeware is fairly clear on how to run the program and get to the point where LOST and RAW folders
are displayed. The LOST folder has many ROOT entries and the RAW folder has entries for many file types (BMP,
GIF, JPEG, etc.). I have been able to save files and then access the data on the output drive; many of the
images seem a bit corrupted, but many are OK. If any of you folks have much experience using the Minitool
Power Data Recovery software, please help me out with this task. Again, I want to save the recovered data
from the formatted drive onto the output drive so that there is the same directory tree (is that the correct
term?). Thanks!

----HulaBear

PS: The files found by the Minitool total more
than 2.8 terabytes from a 1 terabyte drive. What's
up with that?

Of course I will be posting in Dell's forums also, I could use some direction. I have Windows 7 Home Premium. New, will use warranty if needed. I have encountered runtime error for Data Safe back up. "Data Safe Local Back Up\Components\DSUpdate\DSUpdate.exe" "abnormal program termination."

Dell Community suggested going to the folder, double clk the DSUpdate.exe and follow the prompts to update, but I get the above error when doing so. Another option was to create recovery media to work around the problem, but I did that upon initial set up of the pc.

I primarily run linux rather then windows. Awhile back, I had migrated my data from one HDD to another so I could switch to EXT4 file system. Then I copied the data back to the newly created EXT4 partition. Recently, I decided I regretted this decision after I suspect a ton of data corruption was caused by using the write support in Ext2fsd to read and write my EXT partition in Windows. Due to space constraints and the amount of data involved, I believed Acronis TIH 2013 was the best tool for the job due to the amount of compression it can apply in an efficient manner. Turns out I did not need the compression features but as I needed to complete some tasks in windows, I decided I would use TIH anyways. Originally I did a partition back up by mistake. So when I went to restore my back up, I found that it wiped out the newly formated NTFS file system, and restored it back to EXT. So I proceeded to do a file back up this time. Once completed, the task verified the back up, I rebooted and loaded the Parted Magic live ISO and used the included partitioning tool(used to be gparted but I think they changed it recently) to format the EXT drive to NTFS once again. This went off with out any problems, so I rebooted and chose to go back in to windows. Once in windows, I proceeded to restore the back up. When I tell it to restore, I see a pop up that should display the contents of the back up. Instead it shows a single folder named "!NEW"(I some times appen... Read more

hi
i have a scSi disk 36.4GB, i lost information from it and tried to recover with other recovery softwares to no avail finally i got winhex & got the professional licence.

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.

what techniques do i use to curve out that space and be abele to extract the information, for i can even read the information in text format.

which are the data extractors available in the market

Dear Friends.
Hope this finds you well!
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!?
Thank You in advance for your care, compassion and cooperation. I'm stuck in the mud...

Long story short... my sister put a damaged audio connector in her out of warranty dell and the whole computer shut down. When I plug in the machine, the mobo lights turn on. When I hit the power button, not a thing happens. It was late so I decided to just grab her harddrive and try to boot it on my machine hoping to get some files off there she needs. I figured the mobo and psu were the most likely candidates for serious damage. The power button blinks amber which apparently indicates a power issue of some sorts.

When I tried swapping my HD for hers on my machine, the windows xp screen pulls up and I eventually get the blue screen and some error code 0x1000007E along with 3-4 others in parens. I am not in front of the computer right now so I can't provide them at the moment. I will be able to if someone needs them. I didn't really expect for it to just boot on my comp, but I figured it was worth a shot.

One odd thing is that I can hit delete to enter my bios and I can navigate around in there perfectly, but I cannot navigate when I am attempting to change the "type of boot" meaning normal, safe mode, last know good, etc. It is completely nonresponsive at this time.

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).

Hi,

I therefore thought everything was ok and pulled out the USB.

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?

Hi,

I have a larged data drive that failed a disk check. It stalls when starting stage two (I belive that is the verification of indexing). I have been able to back-up all of the folders except for a large folder of raw video. The PC locks up when I attempt to access/copy this folder (it appears to be part of the problem). I want to make an attempt to recover this data before reformatting the drive.

The check disk fails both at start up or if I run from the desktop both in regular and safe mode. Does anyone have tips for recoverying this data?
 

A:Data Recovery of data drive

You could try using a 98 boot disk and then run ntfsdos from there to access the ntfs partitions. Then try an xcopy of that file to another drive.

Another method could be to use Winrar to create a multipart archive and store it on another drive. This might chunk it up enuff.

Or boot to recovery console from the CD and then run chkdsk /r which marks any sectors that are corrupt as bad so they will not be used again, even after format. All take some time, but they are readily availalble fixes.

Alternatively, you could create an image of the drive and save that somewhere else, then run your drive manufacturers disk utility to check integrity of the disk.

Hope this helps

The hardest files for me to reproduce would be the dozens of psd files (Photoshop) into which I've sunk hundreds if not thousands of hours.

After deep scanning, Recuva finds the the files, but for the four psd files I most want to recover, Recuva notes, "The file's data could not be found on the disk."

A:Recuva Data Recovery: "file's data could not be found..."

OK, the ability to recover any data is inversely proportional to operating the system. The longer the system is ON, the less chance you have of recovering data.

The very first thing to do is STOP using the system. Pull the hard drive out and connect it to a working system. Now run data recovery software. I would use multiple programs; recuva is just one of them. What one finds, the other may or may not find. If you do not have another system, you can boot your system with a linux live usb. At least windows would not be writing to the disk in question.

Hopefully this can be a lesson. Data you do not have multiple copies of is data you do not care about and you should expect to lose said data. Drives fail, accidents happen. With a current backup, it is a non-event.
Personally I make four copies of important data; two on internal drives, a third on a NAS, and a fourth on an external that is stored in a safe. Maybe overkill however it only takes once loosing important data to make you paranoid about backups.

I do have a lot of music on the C: drive which if I could I would store on the large drive and be able to play with WMP when I want. The same goes if I could store programs liken Macrium on the large drive and use on the occasions I want to. I am planning to fir 500gb SSD but funds are a bit stretched right now.

A:Getting data back form back up internal drive

Just make a MUSIC folder on the other drive and move all your music files there. Then right click on that MUSIC folder and INCLUDE it into the music library. Call the folder "Music 2" or something to differentiate it from the other music folders. And the Music folder on the SSD you just leave empty.

There is another method moving the folder via the location tab in Properties. I do not recommend that method. It can lead to problems. The above method is safer.

And leave the programs on the SSD. Those are small.

Mine on the other drive is called Whs Music

Hello, I've been struggling with getting a simple InfoPath 2007 form to work with a test MS Access 2007 database. I feel the best way to explain what I am doing is by giving you an example.

Background of scenario:

Lets say I am a distributor of gas cylinders. I have 100 different gas cylinders that I fill and send to customers. When they are done with the gas, they return the cylinders and I fill them back up. Each cylinder has specific data related to each: manufacturer, serial #, specific cylinder ID, and material of construction (carbon steel, stainless steel, etc). I have this data in my MS Access database, in an individual table called "CYLINDER_DATA". Every time I refill a cylinder, I need to record the date and measure the pressure and temperature (among other things) of the gas in the cylinder. This data (along with the specific "CYLINDER_DATA" at this date of measurement) must be added as a new record in a different table called "CYLINDER_MEASUREMENTS" in the same database.

What I would like to do:

So, I want to create an InfoPath form for operators to use whenever they need to perform measurements on a newly filled cylinder. So, I created an InfoPath form, that starts with a drop-down list box control that is populated with the 100 different cylinder IDs. A user would choose one of the "cylinder IDs" from the drop down list and then click "retrieve data". This would then populate the fields directly below:... Read more

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

A:Data recovery following Packard Bell partial recovery

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.

A:Is there any way to get my data back?

This sounds like a rather serious issue, with three possibilities I can think of.
 
1) You're running out of disk space, and it's impossible to save data -  You can use WinDirStat to see what's eating it up:
http://windirstat.info/
 
2) Bad Hard Drive. Check "S.M.A.R.T." data to see if there are tons of reallocated sectors or anything out of the ordinary.
 
3) Some sort of virus making your files 0kb.
 
Regarding recovery...
Have you tried running a LiveCD to access your files? I would suggest Hiren's Boot CD, as it has Recuva on it.
http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
 
Then run a deep scan -

Backup all important data to a thumbdrive if you can.

I did use the forum search form for "back up", "backing" and "backup" but it seems there's not a tutorial for the best way(s) to do a backup. I attempted using the backup tool on my XP Pro computer, the estimated size was almost 20 gigs, and the thing crashed halfway through. Maybe it's better to copy paste, or there are better utilities out there. Anyway, this would be useful to me.

Hi,

I have a PC with 4 HDD holding about 6-7 years worth of data. My O/S runs solely on one drive and has no absolutely essential files (i.e. Pictures, Videos, Music, Work Documents) these are all spread across the other 3 HDD. I have recently realised how stupid it is not to have any back-ups of this data and want to implement a robust solution. Can any one suggest a few optimal ways of doing this? I'am most worried about my photo's (a big hobby) and music, both collections have taken a while to gather. I have about 1 TB of data on the four drives. A few pointers

1. I want to merge my HDD so that I only have one HDD for my O/S and one for my Data. I will probably buy a 1TB drive for data and use one of my 300 GB 7200 drives for O/S I think this should be fast enough?

2. I don't think my motherboard can do raid (Asus P5B), and if it can I have no idea how to set it up.

3. I have a strange tendency to break external HDD, in the last year I have dropped ( only from about 5 cm!) two externals and both have been irrecoverable (one was to cost £2500 to recover!). Luckily I had the originals.

4. Ideally I want something that backups automatically regularly, and that only backs up files which have changed, otherwise backups seem to take a very long time.

5. UPDATE: Not sure if this makes a differance but with the new O/S drive I will be dual booting Windows 7 Beta / Vista. I may upgrade to 64-bit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I managed to reformat my computer but now my new problem is that I'd like to at least of my data back from my hard drive.

I mainly just want to retrieve my Counter-Strike: Source/Steam stuff as well as my iTunes library (if possible). I don't have any important files worth saving so I don't mind losing any of my old saved documents.

Is it possible and how would I go about doing this?

The time to backup data is before formatting the drive. You may not be able to recovery anything.

You can try using Recuva.

I assume you must have partitioning software, If so you could create a new partition on the existing drive, then recover to that partition.

I have Norton Ghost, part of SystemWorks. I cannot figure out how to make a **new** image. It only wants to open an existing image file in the ghost Explorer; I have none.

Is there any other software that can help me make regular backups of specific directories that I choose? Of course I could do it manually - that is, make a new CD "project" and drag & drop the directories each time. but I'd have to remember which files or directories I've modified since the last backup.

I'd like an easier way to find files that have been added or modified since the last backup, bring them all together, and make a CD or CDs of them, or copy them to my 2nd hard drive for storage. What's the best way to accomplish this?
 

A:The Best Way To Back Up Data

For backing up to CD I use NTI Back-up Now! it's nothing fanacy but it gets the job done just fine, it will cost ya a few bucks, I can't remember how much I paid though. For backing up to another harddisk, I REALLY recommend this little program called Cobian Backup, you can find it at download.com just search for 'cobian'... it's totally free. Its really cool... I highly recommend it. It allows you to specify the folders and files you want backed up, and then you choose how often, and it has some other options. When its all set it runs in the system tray and automatically mirriors the origional location to whatever destination location you have specified. I use it at work to automatically backup critical files every night... and it even works over a network. I have this thing set to back up 8 directories over the network at 1 AM each morning. This way it dosn't interfear with my work or anything, it just gets done automatically and I never have to worry about it, and in the event I need the back up, I know there is always one what is less than 24 hours old! Give it a try, its well worth it. (Here I am sounding like I wrote the software...lol)

If neither Easeus nor Recuva succeeded I'm guessing that your only chance is professional (expensive) data recovery. Don't write anything else on the disk.

I got this lappy from a man who wants his data saved. Apparently, there is pictures and documents on there. I used a Bart cd to locate his drive and maybe save some of this stuff, but his drive shows up as clean. Nothing on there. Should i use a better utility such as Getback data NTFS or EASUS data recovery, somthing with more forensic abillty. any ideas....would be great. Thanks.
 

A:need help getting data back..

I've used Getdataback http://www.runtime.org/ with success a couple of times. Also you (when I did it) can run it and see if you find what your looking for before you buy a key. I also used there support on some raid drives. No luck there but the support was very helpful.

Also of note...when I used it you did't want it writting to the same drive you were inspecting...

OK, firstly I am a complete moron in doing what I dun!

My old PC's motherboard a sudden death (confirmed by Techy) but I did retrieve all the hard drives that were all in working condition.

My new HP PC is the new type without the deck e.g. everything is contained in the monitor's guts with only one CD drive. Obviously the days of IDE and Hard Drives as I knew them are over so how can I retrieve the contents of my old drives.

Whilst typing I suddenly realized that my wife has one of the "old fashioned" PCs so maybe if I just hook each of them up in turn, I will be able to pull the data (photos mainly), transfer them to a high capacity flash USB drive or external HDD and then copy to my new PC?

Any better ideas folks?

Thanks
 

A:How can I get this data back?

You'll need to connect it somewhere, obviously. There are USB adapters available that you may find useful later, or can even be used to store data or backups to an external drive on a regular basis (Look around. I got some for $5 each, but that was on sale a couple years ago, so no guarantees they will be that cheap, but it indicates what "looking around" could do). Otherwise, connecting internally is possible, too, but only if the "old" computer is new enough that it has SATA drive connectors and not the older IDE type (assuming those are SATA drives). Then copy over your files.

You lucked out if you didn't lose them. No backups? A full system backup will make recovering your entire system to a new hard drive possible when it fails and is better than starting from scratch and losing everything.

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...
