Q: how to recover deleted files

hello guys how can i recover deleted files. is there any software to download?
please give me the link.

Preferred Solution: how to recover deleted files

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: how to recover deleted files

Do a Google search for "File Recovery" and you will find hundreds (actually millions) of links to software that will do what you want. Bear in mind, though, a hard disk that has been in constant use (reading and writing) will have over-written many of the files (or parts of the files) and those will not be recoverable.

i was using this ACDSee Classic picture program to to view and delete a lot of photos about 8GB 27,500 pix worth. and i noticed these 2 .jpg files in the folder with all the other ones that had no image properties and had no picture to view even though they were about 120KB in size.. so i decided to delete them becuz they were corrupt i guess.. so apon deleting them the ACDSee app froze or something so I had to terminate its process from the task manager.. then when i went back to the picture folder it said that there were only 21,476 Files now with a total of 1.96GB of used space.. so this ACDSee picture app just deleted over 6GB of my Photos..
i tried a system restore but it wouldnt give me back my photos.. and then ended up somehow loosing all my system restore poins after that..???
i have the recycle bin turned off so all files are deleted instead of being moved to the bin..
Is there any app that can get me back my deleted photos..???

Recently I had to recover Deleted files from Recycle Bin using Handy Recovery software.

I often use, Disk clean and Defrag. Update windows, driver etc.

Question: When I recovered deleted files, I got some very old files deleted more than 3 or 4 months ago. I wonder why they were in the computer? Why they did not delete till now?

Thank you

A:How come recover deleted files?

Because when a HDD Stores files it stores it Physically and Magnetically - The only way to secure delete something without it being recoverable is to write Data over. your computer may have not Written any data over those files yet

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.

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.

Did he deleted them from Recycle Bin too? Because if not, you can found them there, just right-click on your file and then, restore.
Other solution I don't know, only if System Restore can do something, but I'm not sure.

Today I deleted sixteen files that I needed - they weren't sent to the recycle bin as I usually hold down shift and delete together so I don't have to empty the recycle bin often. I know there are many file recovery programs available that you have to pay for, but as I only need to recover around 16 files I was wondering if any of you knew about a deleted file recovery program which was free, even if it was for a limited time. I tried downloading some demos but they either only allowed small files to be recovered or didn't let you recover any files without paying.

The files I deleted were no more than 100k/b, and I use Windows 98 SE. Anybody know of any recover deleted file programs that would help me?

On one of my laptops I recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. Usually when I upgrade it automatically creates a Windows.Old folder in my C Drive where I can access all my files from before the upgrade. But this time there was no Windows.Old folder. So I downloaded and ran a file recovery program...it found 0 old deleted files. I ran that same program on a different laptop and it worked fine. So where could the deleted files have went and how can I access them?

A:Can't Recover Deleted Files

Upgrades do not delete any files. They would be in the same location as they were when you left them.

If you did not upgrade, but installed a fresh copy of 7, the files are most likely underneath the OS and lost. The installation of the OS uses about twice the drive space that the final installation uses, so everything would have been written over.

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.

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

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 ??Ya94~9??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

Hi guys,

My name is Ivan. This is my first post here and I hope I will enjoy this forum.

However right now I'm in big trouble. My brother decided to install some linux distro
on the laptop that we both use. He decided me without asking if I have some important
info there. He told me that he wanted to make a dual boot system (I'm not fully aware how it works)
and he said that he did it before, but now just erased my whole disk by mistake.

I thought that this is some bad joke, but when I checked (I gave the laptop to friend of mine who run live some software to show partitions) the whole disk was emty except some folders of the new OS.

I cant describe how I feel right now. Is there a way something to be saved? He told me that he shuted down the system on the moment he realized what was going on and not even 1% of the new OS was instilled. But the fact is that there is nothing anymore...

Please help guys!

Ontrack Easy Recovery Professional is also said to be excellent, but I think you ultimately have to pay. Maybe $79?? It will show you the files it can recover, but won't let you actually recover them until you pay.

I'm assuming Robocopy doesn't have any type of "undo" capability.

A:Recover Deleted user and files

Hello UltimateHedgehog, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Unfortunately, a System Restore will not affect user files. It's only for system files and instead.

You might check to see if you have a C:\Users\(user name) folder with the old user account name still there. If your Dad only deleted the old user account from within User Accounts in the Control Panel, then it may still be there to copy over to the new account.

Since you have Vista Ultimate, you might also see if you can use Previous Versions with the C:\Users folder to see the old user name folder or files can be restored.

Hope this helps,

Hi, I used Puran to recover some deleted files from my external hard drive and when I open some of the files I get the following message:
"This document could not be registered . It will not be possible to create links from other documents to this document."
The documents still fully open and they look like they are all there. Also, when I look at the properties of some of the folders they say there is 0 bytes in them. I did the recovery twice, once selectively with only the files that I thought I needed such as .doc and .pdf, and again with everything including files such as .cab . chm .dwg .hlp .mdf. Two identical recovered folders from each recovery say they have a different amount of data in them.
My question is: are there supporting files that need to be recovered along with the .doc and .pdf files to fix the issues and to make sure i have recovered everything, such as the .cab .chm etc?  I didnt the extra files were necessary but on further research they might be files needed by word. Are they only needed for the program and not individual files?
Thanks for the help!

A:Recover deleted user account and files - XP Pro

Deleted files can be recovered with file recovery software. I use PC Inspector File Recovery. There are others.

First off, when files are deleted, they're not really deleted. The pointer to the file location is deleted. All the data remains, it's just that the computer doesn't know where to find them anymore without file recovery software. If you keep using the computer that has the deleted files, the space the files are using could potentially get overwritten by other files, thereby making recovery less possible. Windows constantly writes temporary data to the disk. Any of this data could overwrite your files.

I suggest you turn off that computer, take the hard drive out, and put it in another computer as a slave drive to run the file recovery program.

Once the drive is in another computer, use a file recovery program (search google for 'file recovery' or 'undelete files', etc.) to scan the slave drive for deleted files. You should be able to get most, if not all, of your files back.

If that's out of your experience level, find a good computer technician in your area to do the recovery. Don't go to your local multimedia store to find one, go to an independent computer store. They usually know what they're doing.

The important thing is to stop using the computer until your files are recovered.

I noticed I had two copies of the My Documents folder, one in my user folder where I want it, and the other buried deep in my pictures folder (I think I accidentally dragged and dropped it there once when I was trying to change the order of icons in the navigation pane). I deleted the one in my pictures folder, and both folders disappeared!

What happened?

I closed the screen out, re-opened "my computer," and see both My Documents folders back, but empty.

1) How can I recover my files? My last backup was last week, and I've written quite a bit since then. I was actually about to back up again when I saw the annoying second folder and deleted it, not realizing they were linked. The folder was too large and bypassed the recycle bin.

2) How can I fix the two folders issue? I have the same problem with my music folder also, and have had problems with the folders under my username seeming to disappear, reappear, and move for no apparent reason.

A:recover deleted user account files?


This is your second thread about this subject....

you have locked yourself out of a computer or accounts.....the computer was given to you, you stated in your other thread, and you deleted something> and cannot log in.

From your other thread:

i got a pc from a friend that he had in his business office and it was working fine but it was connected to a network there and i tried to dissable it and delete some users but i must have deleted his account because it doesnt let me log in anymore. how can i get in now? i asked him if had different passwords and we tried them all with no luck. please help.Click to expand...

We are SORRY but as I explained to you already, this forum cannot provide assistance with lost passwords, or workarounds to bypass logging in, do you understand? It is against this site's Rules. Closing this second thread.
Note: Use any search engine like Google....type in what you need to find help with, you should find lots of it, even from Microsoft itself.... but, due to the networking environment, such help may not work!
