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

Hi all, i am requesting some technical assitance in solving this issue.

i have a hard disk that has been recently affected by [email protected] virus and all the .doc and xls files have been reduced to 1kb irispective of their initial sizes and when you open the files you get this error; DATA Error [47 0F 94 93 F4 K5]

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

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.


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

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.)

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.

Hi everyone..

My external USb Wd mybook box has 1 tb Seagate Sata 3 and i use original Wd disc as W7 installed... in My PC Case as sata II

Today my old problem appears again as Corrupted disc...
I have Get Data Back NTFS (and i used before plenty of times for recovery, loss data or unwanted deletions) but..

This time im stuck.. Becouse the disk i try to recover includes 870 gb (about) used disk space (only audio files) only 50gb (about) empty space... Thats too big for me to recover to other disks.. i don't have enough spaces that my other disks can handle..

I have about 300 gb FREE disk space in several disks or partitions include My thinkpad SL510 Notebook..
So my question is
wit keeping my lost data in corrupted disk first, can i take them slowly to this 300 gb spaces (i know i can) and after create somehow emty space (deleting those recovered 300 gb + 50 on corrupted disk) and
use that empty space for more recovery. ???? Or smilar solutions.. Becouse DISC PRICES IS HEAVY nowadays and really i'm out of budget with buying some
equipments upgrades..
Like creating slowly slowly some extra spaces (don't know how)

I know i look silly in situation becouse i know u should never write to same disc if you dont want to say goodbye to your files..

E-how happened (not necessary to read these part)

according my experiences Thats the mistakes... DOn't do those at the same tim... Read more

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...

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

kindly assist its quite urgent i get this information out

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


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 booted up my Win 7 computer today and ChkDsk said my Ex HDD may have been corrupted and proceeded to delete some files. Those were some very important files - how can I get them back? (Video and Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 files)

I prefer free methods on this - I know I can buy software to do this, but I currently don't have the money. Or a very cheap method, if nothing else.

It's ironic that today was the day I was going to back up this drive.

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

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 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

I have a Phillips Freevents LS1600 which is only 14 months old. When I was on the net recently the computer froze but the cursor would move so I had to switch off with power button since then when restarting it prompted me to reboot from CDs because of a MBR error amongst other things so friendly (not) PC Techguys told me I would need the recovery CD's from them as I hadn't made any myself. So I paid for those. Put them in the machine to run a full system restore (as recommended) the files copied to about 6% then I got a blue screen saying the following;

Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error with some other jargon and the technical information was;

Today when I restarted my computer, the boot screen indicated that the Windows file 32 was missing or corrupt.

I used my recovery CD to "repair" the issue, and the warning indicated that no data would be erased. Well, that is partially true - folders on my C: drive are intact, as are all programs but...MS Office and my User settings (bookmarks, etc. but most importantly my Outlook pst file which contains 6 years of data!). It appears the User folder with my name is gone.

I knew something was wrong when the PC booted after the repair, and asked me to customize settings as if the PC were brand-new.

Any advice is most appreciated on how to recover my settings and e-mail data in Outlook and Outlook Express. I am running WinXP Media Center edition. Thank you.

Hello, I am faced with a real big problem. Recently I've lost all my data due to a RAID problem and had to use a full system image backup I was able to make before the crash. Here's the catch: I use a Core2Quad with 2 SATA drives on RAID 0 and Vista X64 ultimate. I have the windows installation DVD. Since my backup is on a USB HDD I plug it in, windows system restore finds the backup image. However, when it should start to copy the files a error message appears saying I can't restore my backup because it was made on a X64 system and my computer is a X86 system. How come? Has my processor mutated or what? I really cound't find a way to bypass this and start the backup. Please, any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

Background: A family member got mad and deleted all of my creative projects, then deleted them from Recycle Bin. (I caught them in the act, they are now penitent, and I'm going to change the computer's password to avoid future mishaps.) 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.

I've done nothing on the computer since then, except to sleep it, then turn it back on (after a power outage while it was asleep), plug in a flash drive with Recuva's portable version (recommended to me by a friend, this is my first time ever using it), and run it from the flash drive.

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."

Not only is this upsetting, it's also mystifying, given that I've done nothing else on the computer since the deletion.

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 just got a new Windows 8.1 PC and it works fine. As a recovery precaution I made a Windows 8.1 recovery disk on a brand new PNY USB 2.0 flash thumb drive (32GB drive) using the Windows 8.1 Control Panel Advanced Recovery tools "Create a Recovery drive" selection. I also indicated to copy the recovery partition from the PC when making this (but I don't delete this partition on the PC). So I thought I would test this recovery drive to see if I can boot from it. I insert the USB flash drive into a USB 2.0 port on the PC and restart the PC. I hit F12 during the PC boot process and select this disk as the temporary boot disk and hit return. The PC then gives me an error message screen basically saying
"Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer." If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

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

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

Hiya...

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 dont own a mp3 player but they can be plugged into the computer i know that, when you plug them in does windows recognize the device as a drive? and allow you to search threw the files by going to lets say my computer > mp3 player > music??? if so you might be able to get away with using a recovery program such as recover my files (the best one on the market that i have seen takes a while to run gets alota stuff back... just set it to only search for mp3s... uncheck all otehrs or you can try a freeware tool there out there just not as good, if nothing else you should be able to play parts of the songs that were deleted if there not too corrupt & or you could get the old file name which can help you re download the files if the issue is more that you couldnt rember all 1000 file names you had on there, let me know how it turns out

Well it all started when I tried installing an old CD drive onto my system. I then got the error message "missing or corrupt hal.dll file". One thing led to another and what I thought was a REPAIR install of Windows XP, actually erased my whole hard drive leaving only a partially completed Windows subdirectory.

I plugged the hard drive into another computer as a secondary drive and all it's showing is just that Windows subdirectory. I've tried a data recovery program, but it is not showing anything on the hard drive.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My life is on this hard drive and I haven't done any recent backups (including an important project I've been working on)

so this drive which has data on it will not run. I have a bytecc usb 2.0 drive mate

that I plugged the drive into and I would not spin up.

now oddly, the bytecc usb 2.0 drive mate used to have a red light indicating power and a green light indicating connection. now the red light does not work, however I tried another drive and it spins and was recognized by the bytecc usb 2.0 drive mate.

so... assuming its only the LED red light that burnt out on the bytecc usb 2.0 drive mate then I assume its the drive motor itself.


can I open the drive,

take out the disk and put that disk in another drive which I know works in order to read the info on the dead disk? will that work or am I going to encounter more problems?

hi every1,

my question is "how to recover data from encrypted har drive?"
i installed safeboot on my laptop, asfter some time i need to rebuild the laptop, unfortunatly I missed to copy one of my imported folder.
Now i want to recover that folder, could sombody help me out?


A:data recovery

well if it's any decent encryption program you won't be able to recover data from the drive. It's possible but you definitely need to contact a data recovery specialist. If it was a physical problem a data recovery lab can repair the problems, mirror the drive, install it to your laptop, and then with your encryption key, de-crypt your drive and retrieve your data. If the problem was a logical or file structure problem your data is probably unrecoverable. Some encryption programs identify each drive uniquely so even if a mirrored replacement drive is installed into the laptop, recovery may be unsuccessful. JT

Hey all,
First off I would like to state that I have searched through "Data Recovery" (keywords) and could not find a thread with my issue, or a Thread explaining it in Laimens Terms.

Here is the situation, recently my computer got stuck in a boot loop and nothing worked for fixing it, not fixboot, chkdsk, chkdsk /r, fixmbr, nothing. So then I was left with an XP (Pro) CD and a decision to re-install Windows. Which is exactly what I did. When re-installing I choose the option to not Format my drive and leave the files. Once I had it all installed I found that I did have some files, but others were missing. I had a bunch of movies placed in a folder on my Desktop, along with Music, and thousands of pictures/photoshops in my "My Pictures" folder. All of that seems to be gone. How can I recover this? Is it possible to recover these files? I would HATE if I had to lose all of that, its all very important to me. I still have all of the files that were in my "Program Files" folder, or inside the C:/ drive itself. I went to the "Documents and Settings" folder and I did not find the files in there either.

I have two drives in my computer, (Master) and one 300GB (Slave), the 300GB had nothing on it (I know, it was DUMB of me to not backup all of the files onto it).

Also please check out this other thread of mine for other information:

I have a hard disk here that died right in front of me. We had identified some bad surface area and were in process of copying the data to backup in preparation for replacing it.

We restarted the computer and it came up with "Missing Operating System". The boot sector seems to be gone along with the partition table. I've run Active Partition Recovery to no avail. I'm sure that if I were skilled at direct disk editing, I could correct the problem well enough to recover something; but, I have no expertise there.

Utilities that run under Windows probably won't help as the data is in an area that is seen by Windows as "unallocated space".

What utilities are there that might help?

I always thought that the best way to secure files is to put it on a CD or DVD because it would be there safely for a lifetime, keeping in mind that you should protect it from scratches or any form of physical damage to the CD. Just this morning I came across with an article saying that older CDs or DVDs will eventually have reading problems until the files are completely unrecoverable.It did not totally changed my way of thinking but somehow put a doubt on it. If this is true then we should recover the files on those media (CD/DVD) and transfer it into a new one. The same article also gave an overview on a couple of software to aid in recovery.Here's the link to that article:http://www.ghacks.net/2010/09/20/cd-dvd-data-recovery-software-overview/I hope that you would find this helpful.

Real-life (not accelerated aging) tests have revealed that some CD-Rs degrade quickly even if stored normally. The quality of a CD-R disc has a large and direct influence on longevity?low quality discs should not be expected to last very long. According to research conducted by J. Perdereau, CD-Rs are expected to have an average life expectancy of 10 years.Branding isn't a reliable guide to quality, because many brands (major as well as no name) do not manufacture their own discs. Instead they are sourced from different manufacturers of varying quality. For best results, the actual manufacturer and material components of each batch of discs should be verified.An example of a CD-R burned in 2000 showing dye degradation in 2008. Part of the data on it has been lost.Burned CD-Rs suffer from material degradation, just like most writable media. CD-R media have an internal layer of dye used to store data. In a CD-RW disc, the recording layer is made of an alloy of silver and other metals?indium, antimony, and tellurium. In CD-R media, the dye itself can degrade, causing data to become unreadable.As well as degradation of the dye, failure of a CD-R can be due to the reflective surface. While silver is less expensive and more widely used, it is more prone to oxidation resulting in a non-reflecting surface. Gold on the other hand, although more expensive and no longer widely used, is an inactive material, so gold-based CD-Rs do not suffer from this problem. - WikiSo as long you u... Read more

I tried to update my USB drivers on my old computer running XP Pro and royally jacked it up- BSOD and unable to recover using safe mode, or any other recovery disk etc. That's not so much my problem, I have since started using a newer computer (Gateway 825 GM running XP Pro) and recently bought a HDD Enclosure so I can recover the data on my old HDD.

I have got the old HDD working through the external adapter but I'm unable to access certain directories due to the security settings I had on my old computer user profile. Is there any way to access the secure directories on the old HDD now? I'm logged in to the new computer under a user profile with administrator privileges already.

I'd really like to get the data in these directories because there are a lot of pictures of a recently deceased loved one in there.

A:Data recovery

It's a permissions issue. You'll need to take Ownership of the folders and sub-folders in order to access them. In XP Pro, you can access the "Security" tab in "Properties" of the folder(s) in question, but in XP Home, you can only access the "Security" tab in Safe Mode.

Remove the name of the old Owner, and let Administrator be the new Owner, and apply the settings to all sub-folders.

So we we're wondering if any of you know of a program that can do this on ntfs drives (If that matters at all). It dosn't matter if it costs money. Hes willing to pay for it. Thanks in advance.
