Q: Accidental format, help !

Hi all,
My sister had a virus on her computer and asked me to help, i wanted to boot the pc in safemode to get rid of the virus when i noticed "HP system recovery", I thought this was the option in windows to fully recover your pc to a backup made earlier in time, but apparently this option formats the hd and reinstalls windows :/
Is there an easy way i can recover the pc entirely?
The computer is a HP pavilion computer with windows xp

Preferred Solution: Accidental format, help !

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: Accidental format, help !

If you used the destructive recovery option then I do not think you will have any luck recovering any files, give it a go if you wish
http://www.recuva.com

The HP Recovery procedure gives you two options
A Destructive and Non-Destructive recovery.
The Non-destructive option will leave your personal documents intact

Long story short, I was going to format my usb but I must have accidentally clicked on my C drive instead. Anyways, during the format of my only drive, a Samsung SSD, my computer crashed and I restarted it. I want originally worried because I thought I was formatting a 2gb usb flash drive. Afterward, my computer no longer detects my SSD in my bios. It's my SSD fried, or can I still save it?

A:accidental format of C drive

Hello and welcome iced dragoon I doubt if the drive is fried mate probably a bit confused I should say and I do hope you have data backed up.

So can you slip it into another machine and see if it is "seen" there?? If so then you can reformat and align it before doing a reinstall.

Once you have done that and the drive is ready then you can use this if you have no media

hello everyone, I accidentally formatted my HP omen for recycling instead of a normal format. The computer gives the option to press ESC and bring up the start up menus with system recovery but when I press f11 for the recovery it doesn't do anything. It just recycles between the escape key option and the hp logo. Should I purchase a new Windows 10, put iton a usb and boot my HP from that in order to make it work again?

So, big screw up. Couple weeks ago, I try rebooting my computer, and when it boots, it gives me an error message that one of the boot files is screwed up. And in the process of trying to fix things, I use a tool that doesn't, in fact, recover the drive to a previous state, but formats and reimages the hard drive (it's an HP laptop, so it had a separate partition to allow you to reinstall windows without benefit of an actual Windows CD)

So, mea culpa, I didn't understand what the utility was going to do. The laptop, of course, is working fine again, except that I wiped out all my files. Obviously, there's no way I'm going to be able to recover things like programs and stuff, but I did want to recover at least things like certain text files and images. I downloaded a program called EASEUS Data Recovery, which said it could restore files after format...and after running it, it did, in fact, find files that had file names that I recognized.

However, when trying to recover these files, what I find instead is that most of the file names were in there more than once...and I realized that what it was actually finding was not whole files, but file fragments (which would obviously not open by themselves). I looked on the program website, but it didn't seem to acknowledge this as being a potential issue, or how to remerge the fragments into a working file.

Does anyone have any reccomendations re programs and/or techniques for recovering these old files? Thanks in advance.

A:Recovering files after accidental format.

Sounds as though you have tried to recover the files & only got fragments of them?

Do all the parts add up to the full file or not? If not, I would suggest you are "Stuffed". Sorry

Do you have a copy on a memory stick, back up CD or HDD etc?

Hi,

I have a windows XP pro machine on which I accidentally did a "quick format" on the D drive instead of the A drive (I know' I know, go straight to bottom of class) The drive is just a second partition with data on it, thankfully nothing critical, but I'd like to get it back anyway, there doesn't appear to be an unformat command in XP which is extremely annoying as I _know_ all my data is still on the drive, does anyone know a way to do this ? It's not worth spending money on but would save a lot of downloading and hunting about on CDs.

Many Thanks,

Phill.

My 6 year old laptop running Windows 7 is out of warranty, so here i am seeking help as i am not very computer literate. All i need to know is how many partitioned drives came with my HP laptop. My niece was playing on my laptop without my knowledge and had accidentally formatted Drive-G... i know this much, that Drive-C is my main drive, and Drive-D is the recovery drive to restore my laptop... But what is Drive-G which is only about 101 MB in size? ... does it contain any crucial operating files or data that i need to restore back on to the G-drive, or can i ignore the lost data on Drive-G? I have never added any partitions to my laptop as that is beyond my ability. I tried using a free Data Recover software, and it identified about a couple of hundred files with 6 different types of file extension such as: f0020856.regf0021056_bootvhd.dkkf0021248_mediag.exe.muif0081920_bootresf0051186.dbff0081546.ttf Is this a virtual drive, a casche drive, or....? Can i ignore what was lost, or do i need to be concerned to pay for the Data Recovery software to restore those lost files? Thank you guys in advance for your help.

Hi, so i have a slight problem. A pop-up came up on my laptop on Google Chrome and when i tried to ignore it and carry on with what i was doing, it would send me to this webste saying 'Add extension to exit this page'. So i tried to get out of the page, but i ended up turning my computer off as i didn't want to add this extension. When it turned back on, I carried on with what I was doing in the first place and it came up again. This process happened again and again. I was getting realy fed up, and in frustraton, I added the extension. Immediately, I knew i had done something terrible. Ever since i have added that extension, random adverts will not go away, my google chrome is a lot more different and various other change have been put into place. Does anyone know how to get rid of these extensions? (or should i be asking google chrome) Thank you.

A:Accidental issues

Try resetting google chrome to its defaults: https://www.howtogeek.com/171924/how-to-reset-your-web-browser-to-its-default-settings/  This removes added plugins and such.  Also download install and run ADWCleaner: https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/ It is a very effective malware scrubber.

If what I did formatted the hard drive its not that big of a deal since its a new computer with no important data on it. I figure I'm going to need to reinstall the operating system but I was wondering if there was anyway I could disable RAID and be able to boot from that drive again since it didn't seem like it actually deleted the data since it happened so fast. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a y70-70 touch laptop that I just purchased this past August of 2015 (not even a year old). Around midnight on Friday I accidentally spilled less than half a glass of water on the left half of my keyboard. It took a few seconds to register what happened, then I immediately hit the power button, unplugged my mouse and charger, and grabbed a large bath towel to wipe the water away. I flipped the laptop upside down to try draining any water that may have gotten inside and waited about 20-30 minutes before hitting power button to see if it worked (which I probably should NOT have done). A blue screen appeared, in which Windows gave me options about troubleshooting before the system shut itself down (not the blue screen of death but a regular Windows kind of screen). After that, I left it alone until the next day when I attempted to see if it would work yet again, only this time, the computer didn't even boot up. The only thing that turned on was the fans inside the laptop, which only stayed on until I release the power button. No lights blinking, no other normal humming or whurring a laptop would typically make, just the fans. I was confused and thought maybe it was just trying to dry itself out still so I let it sit yet another night. I tried turning it on this morning (Sunday) and it did the same thing with the fans. I've researched many different articles and based on what I've read, I've either goofed up my laptop so bad with turning it on that it won't work anymo...
