Preferred Solution: Recover deleted profile

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

if he deleted the profile, with out deleting the files its all still there

go to my computer
doulbe click the C ( local disk that the os is installed on)
hit the documents and settings, in here will be all the users profiles
so if you see her log on thats her profile, you can go into and save data needed

you might have to change the folder view to see everything

open explorer, go to tools>folder options>view> change the radio button to show hidden files, and uncheck the hide protected os files and hide extentions.


if the data is here there, you will need a application to recover the data, google getback ntfs

Thanks

By the way, The sid will only be created after the guest account successfully logged in for the first time.

I belive you have to do something in your local security policy.

Type secpol.msc in search bar and hit enter. In the local security policy window expand local policies >user right assessment. In the right click paane find deny logon locally double click that and remove guest account from that policy.

Hello....I'm hoping that you can help me recover my log-on. Initially, after improper Windows shut-down due to power failures) I got error messages that Windows (7) was logging me in temporarily. But those error messages stopped, and now after repeated rebooting, Windows simply logs me in under what I believe is a generic administrator profile. Under the Users folder in the C drive, there are two folders (let's say Diana and a new one, Diana1. ) In the registry, the Profile List is pointing to Diana1. I can see my old documents, pictures, etc., under the User folder Diana, but they are not loading with my profile. There is no .bak on the end of the Registry entry, which most of the fix-it advice seems to assume.
If I simply delete the wrong user (the one to which the Registry is pointing) from the Users folder, will Windows find the correct user profile? I miss my stuff!
Thanks so much for any help,

A:How to recover an overwritten profile

System Restore does not monitor your My Documents folder so it won't restore any files or folders that were overwritten. I would try Recuva portable. Run it off a USB flash drive or external hard drive and try to recover the files you need. Save all recovered files to an External drive

I have Windows 2000 running on my PC with Office 2000 installed. And I have created two profiles for myself on this same computer.

In the process of copying my old profile into my new profile, I have done the opposite. Copied the new profile (which had nothing) into the old profile(which most of my working data files). In doing so I have literally replaced all my documents and files in the my documents folder(old) with nothing (new).

Is there any way I can go about retriving my old file from the date files in the computer?

Even if I switch to my MS account it creates a new profile. I basically just want to revert back to the MS profile so all my settings are the same. Not everything syncs like shortcuts, dropbox, skydrive, etc so trying to sync with MS isn't going to work either.

Hi:

I am using Windows 7. Upon starting up, I received the error: "The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.".

Following the instructions in this article, Method 3:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215

I deleted the User Profile using Computer/Properties/Change settings/System Properties/Advanced...

It fixed the login problem but completely evaporated the user and all of the documents. I can't find them anywhere.

Can someone confirm if this is so? This would be totally insane. Microsoft should at least warn you that following these instructions completely deletes all documents. I mean, they warn you about the potential risks of modifying the registry but they fail to mention that a "side effect" is that all your stuff is evaporated?!

Thanks for your help.

Hello and thank you,

Here is the problem. My sister owns an HP Pavilion a775c which seems to have undergone motherboard failure. She had her XP user profile encrypted a while back, and has some irreplaceable files contained within that user profile.

The computer went out when it went into sleep mode the other day. I was at her apartment and decided to check something out online, only to find that the computer would not respond at all. I tried to power it down (its power light was lit up) and reset it only to find that it would not reboot after it was powered down. When I would press the power button it would not do anything at all. It would not do the false start (power on then power off right away). I did not even show any signs of being connected to a PSU. I concluded that it was either the PSU or the motherboard, so I replaced to PSU with another that I had around (which I know works). Even then there was no response with the system. This has me at the conclusion that it is the motherboard rather than the PSU.

I would be able to help her replace the motherboard, CPU, and whatever else is needed to get the system running again, but the XP install would have the wrong drivers making it impossible to boot. The question is as follows; is there a way to recover the data in her profile, or decrypt it so that it could be accessed from an alternate windows install on another HDD?
As I said at the top, thanks for any help offered.

A:Can I recover an encrypted user profile after a motherboard failure

If after you replace the motherboard XP won't boot, you can sometimes get it to work by doing a repair install of the operating system.

A:Recover deleted history

Chances are that you can't. But what exactly do you want to recover? Files, a list of files, or what?

Ccleaner removes many things that can be useful for recoveries. Backup files, though useless if unused, of course, are created for a reason. Ccleaner should be used sparingly, if at all, and never use the registry part.

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.

Oye. Where to start. I had a problem on my comptuer, so I had to reinstall XP. All is well. I have "roaming profiles" set up on a "server" [really is just my profile on a XP Pro machine w/ a big hard drive]. They are on their own partition. I set my new install machine profile point to the place where it should be. I wanted to use it right away and not wait for it to copy the 12gb of My Documents to my computer at the moment, so I moved them to a different folder. I logged on, and did what I wanted to do. Then I moved My Documents back to the profile folder on the server. Logged off of my computer and logged back on. My Documents is GONE! Apparently, since when I logged on there wasn't a My Documents, and when I logged off, it was there, Windows thought it would get rid of it...and it did. I tried several data recovery programs, and only one was able to recover some of my files, but about 90% of them are useless. A document is just a bunch of ¿??Ya94â~9å??A ect ect. Pictures are unreadable, music is corrupt. I'm very organized, and have everything set up into folders and sub-folders upon sub-folders ect. I'd like to not have to find out where everything goes, but if all else fails, I guess I could. Its about 12gb, and if there is any way of getting it back, I'd GREATLY appreciate it. I called a guy who does this for a living, $500 flat rate, and if successsful $100/gb. It's not worth that much, but it has a LOT of value ... Read more

I need to recover deleted IE history and have scoured all different sources for recovery and im starting to doubt whether or not it is possible.

What I know wont work:

System Restore- The history was deleted between restore points, and the restore points on either side of it being deleted dont have the relevant history

What I've tried:

Index.dat readers. This is what I'm confused about, everywhere I go say this file holds all IE history unless its been altered, but from everything I've actually tried it seems all the index files I can find just hold information I can pretty readily access already.

So I'm willing to try any suggestions, and also if anyone has a little more info on index.dat that would change what I've found out myself it would also be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I accidentally deleted a folder that has many files in my portable drive. They are not in the recycle bin as I set it for immediately deletion. So I purchased a data recovery program online and it found the deleted files. When I restored and opened the files, they were corrupted. Is there a reliable program that can recover the files efficiently? The Internet has so many programs and I don't know which to pick.

Many thanks.

A:How do I recover deleted files?

Has anything been copied onto the drive since the deletion? If it has, the locations where the deleted files were may have been overwritten by new files. If this has happened, recovered files will be corrupt, and no recovery software will be able to recover them correctly.

If nothing has been transferred to the drive since the folder was deleted, then it's a disappointment that paid software fails to recover them. Well-regarded recovery programs include Recuva, PcInspector and GetDataBack (paid). Other posters may have other recommendations from their experience.

A:Can I Recover Deleted Programme?

How and what did you delete? I don't know of a stand alone power management program. You can access your power options in the control panel, in XP anyways not positive with Vista. Whether Lenovo has one you'll have to read your owner's manual. Have you emptied the trash bin? If it's still in there, restore it back

Hi,

I used the computer management utility in windows 7 to delete a disk drive but i clicked the wrong one.

I deleted D: Instead of F:

I right clicked and selected delete volume.

Is there any way to recover the data on D:?

Thanks.
 

A:Deleted drive. Can i recover?

I think that the free EASEUS Partition Master will do the job.

P.S. - Windows says "drive." Easeus, like everybody else, says "partition."

Hello
I used to have almost an entire hard drive (50 gb) worth of .wmv files (ripped my dvd collection). I had to delete all of it since I thought I would need the space for other files. That turned out not to be necessary so now I'm wondering if there is a way to get that data back. The entire folder was deleted - I think Windows said it was too big to put in the bin. I did not do any other work on that drive since.

I tried using some popular recovery programs: Recuva, Undelete plus, restore but they don't seem to get a trace of the files. Instead they display some bizzare files which appear to be from a previous windows instalation. Now I find it unlikely that the entire collection of over 100 hundred files would just dissappear without a trace. So maybe I'm doing something wrong or using the wrong software? I'd appreciate a hand.

edit: if you know about affordable commercial software that would do the job feel free to recommend

My non-technical brother bought an external hard drive then "synched" that drive to a folder on his internal hard drive that held (of course) all of the pictures of the kids. He claims he then deleted the folder from his internal hard drive and everything was gone from his external hard drive. Nothing in the recycle bin either.

I've never used an external hard drive, so I don't know if any of what he's saying even makes sense, but the bottom line is that he would like to get out of the doghouse and get the pictures back. Does anyone know if this is possible?

I've heard that no file is ever really erased from your hard drive its really just a matter of how much you want to pay to get it back.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

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.

Pat

I keep My Documents, My Videos etc. on a separate drive to OS (on E:\)

Today I noticed that My Documents folder was duplicated within the My pictures folder ... checked original still there - and then deleted what I thought was dup ... and both folder now gone.

I run RECUVA and saved all deleted files to separate HDD so they are at least safe.
Could not see option in RECUVA to actually recover a folder & its file structure.

However it would take long time to recreate structure & copy back.

I understand W7 has a feature in it to recover a deleted folder ... I looked at info and it seemed to say select folder and the right click ............. can't do that as folder no longer shows.

Is there a neat way to recover folder none of the files will have been overwritten.

A:recover Deleted folder

Do you have system restore enabled? If so you can mount the system restore point and browse it to copy your documents folder back to where it should be. You'll only lose any cahnges that were made to it since the last system restore point before the folder was deleted was created. Let us know as there are a couple of free softwares that can recover folders using this method.

Hi All,
I accidentally lost all the pictures from my desktop and I am unable to recover them. This is what happened;
1. Created a folder under C: and gave it a name
2. I cut photos from the SD card and pasted them in to this new folder
3. Disconnected the SD card and removed it from the slot
4. I was then in the process of copying a movie file from the harddisk to a pen drive and that was when my 1 year old (whom I was carrying while doing the copy) banged on the laptop keyboard
5. The movie file got deleted from the folder and I couldn't find it in recycle bin too
6. Then I started doing "REDO" until I got the movie file back
7. Only to realize that the photos I previously copied were not there anymore in the new folder I created and the folder's name had changed back to "New Folder" (Basically the Folder name and the copy of the photos operation was undone :( )
I have tried a few recovery softwares both on the SD card and harddisk but no luck :( I lost around 200 photos and invaluable memories of a family trip

Any kind of help would be really appreciated

Thanks in advance,
Raghu

A:Recover Deleted Pictures

Hi Raghu,


Please understand that it is hard for us to retrieve deleted files.
 
However, I would like to provide the following suggestions for test:
 
Suggestion 1 System Restore
===================
1. Before you start, please close all open files and close all open programs.
2. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and click System Restore.
3. Select "Choose a different restore point" and click Next.
4. From the restore points available, select an appropriate restore point when your system was working correctly and click "Next".
5. Click Finish and System Restore will restart the computer to apply these changes.
 
After restarting, check whether your system functions correctly now. If not, you can undo your last restoration or select another restore point in the System Restore user interface.
 
Note: System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It also can make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files on your computer.
It does not affect personal files, such as e mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file.
 
Suggestion 2 Restore to Previous Versions
===========================
1. Right-click the folder that contains the photos you deleted and click Properties.
2. On the Previous Versions tab, choose a folder before you deleted the photos and click Restore.
 
If the pictures st... Read more
