Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Please help recover deleted data

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.)

A: [SOLVED] Please help recover deleted data

Undelete has a free 30 day trial. I would recommend not using your hard drive for anything at all. If at all possible disconnect it and use another computer to recover the files.

Any time something gets written to your hard drive you risk overwriting the "deleted" data.

I deleted a partion using the windows 7 installer disk. Unfortunately I was a bit click happy and deleted my secondary drive (one partition if you call it that, as it took up the whole disk). This is my data drive. I keep everything there including a lot of very large, multimedia files that I cannot live without. After picking my heart back up out of my shoe I started asking for help and downloading as many free tools as I can. None of them have worked satisfactorily. Find and Mount looked extremely promising, saying it would find a mark on the HDD where a partition had been made previously and then allowing me to mount a read only version, then copying all the files as though the partition had never been damaged, if I wanted. Funnily enough not only did it fail to find a visable or lost partition on this drive, it even failed to find working partitions on any other drive. Pfft.I've tried Paragon Partition Manager. It told me my drive had errors and to run chkdsk. I did this but it didn't help. The programme had the same errors when I tested it on another drive. Another pfft.I tried EASEUS Partition Manager. It found the files... but it copied all 253 gb of them as 'raw' files or something like that. This means they were completely out of order, no folders and renamed 'file001.jpg' etc. This is useless for me as a lot of my files are .RARs that need to be in a sequence to option or similar issues and also with over 25000 files I cannot be arsed o...

Hello
I'm new here and I have a windows vista 32 bit service pack 2 operating system.

Just recently I have made horrible mistake when cleaning my computer , that I can't seem to reverse but maybe you could help me *fingers crossed*

In C:\Users\HOME ADMINISTRATOR\AppData I deleted alot of Roaming. Local Low,and Local Files and have emptied it from my recycle bin.

Because I have user account control on, I can't pass that prompt screen when I click allow, I just wait and wait and nothibng happens. I come out of it by prompting windows task manger using ctrl + alt+ delete. This makes it even more difficult since I cannot turn user account control off ,prompt run, or system restore without that prompt.

What are my options? what do you suggest I do? Is there another way to restore my computer sytem wihout losing all my current document files?

Please help

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:

On Sunday I was within a sub folder within my Music folder and I decided to delete a track (file) and much to my horror it appeared to delete my whole folder (alas not fully backed up and has taken years to put together). Despite it being well over 20Gb in size it only took a few seconds. No warnings - are you sure, this is too large for the recycled bin etc, nothing. At first I thought I may have accidently dragged it into another folder, but after a careful search it can not be found anywhere. It is not in the recycled bin and I have even done a search by file extension on the whole computer - nothing, gone. I accept it is definetely deleted. Can anyone help me? perhaps recommend some soft (free) ware that can help me recover the folder. Thanks John

So something went wrong with my windows XP on another computer and now I'm trying to recover the files.

What initially happened was that when I started my computer it wouldnt boot into safe mode or normal mode. So i tried to do a Repair on the windows XP partition using the XP disc.
However I think I may have accidentally installed instead of doing a repair option. I canceled when I noticed it but I believe the installation already have maybe deleted the partition?

Anyways, is there a way to get back the files that were originally on there? I don't mind re installing windows after I have extracted the old files.

I was thinking of using a bootable flashdrive and running certain programs that will recover the old files. Any way of doing so? What programs/ bootable flashdrive should I use?

Hi all,
I have been wondering about something for a while, could someone maybe clarify?

Do you just use the same programs for recovering over-writed worked in like word for example, as you would for say, a reformatted hard drive?

Okay, here's and examaple.
Like in My Docs. If you have a file called 'accounts', and a file called 'reports'

eg1.
You work on 'reports', and delete a bit of what the documents contains, and then save it. Then you realise that what you deleted is actually something you need.

eg.2
You work on 'accounts', and accidently overwrite 'accounts'

How would you co about restoring this? would it e the same software again? but just with a decreased chance of succsess?
Hope that makes sense,

My friend has inadvertantly deleted my external 750Gig HDD and fomatted it into FAT32!!!!
Well, he at least tried too. It did not proceed with the format, always popping up with an error message. Guess this is due to the HDD being to large for FAT 32.
The drive is an WD MyBook Essential 750Gig. It had (and hoefully still does) 320Gig of data on it.
My friend had it connected to his pc and forgot to unplug it. When he decided to re-install his os's starting with 98SE it for some reason decided that the external drive looked the best to install too. So the prompts went through to deleteing the partition and then trying to format to FAT32. Thats as far as it got.
When I plug in my drive and select it, it reports that it is not formatted and do I wish to proceed with this. Of course I chose not too.

ALL of my critical data and back ups are on this drive!!
Is there any way to retrieve this data from the external drive. There is 320Gig of data on it. 200Gig being VERY important information on it. The rest I do not care about. As opposed to spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a company to fix it, is there a way to do this myself?
Any trustworthy and proven software that you are familiar with?
Can the drive be changed back to NTFS before recovery?
Does that matter?

Any help here is soooo much appreciated and If I can somehow retrieve this data, then I may not starve to death for as long as my wifes memory remebers this horrible event....

I've tried fixing the problem by booting with XP cd and restore/fix, with no success. It wants me to format the HDD and re-install XP.
There is no software tool from hard drive manufacturer that I can find.
I've even made a old 20gb HDD as my C:\ (master) and installed XP on it, then connected my 30gb HDD as slave to try and recover the data. My 30gb is displayed in explorer and Disk Management, but it is not accessable.

How can I retrieve/save my data from that HDD? Or how can I fix my HDD?

I will apreciate all help.
Thanks
