A data recovery program that can recover MPEG-2 files?

Q: A data recovery program that can recover MPEG-2 files?

Hi, anyone know of a program that will data recover MPEG-2 movies that were accidentally removed from my Recycle Bin? I have tried several programs, including Recover My Files, GetDataBack, Stellar Phoenix - one found no files, the other found 1300 files (where there should only be about 10), and the other found the right amount, but the files themselves were absolutely huge, so it must have merged the missing MPEG-2s to some of the other movies that weren't deleted.

Can anyone please suggest a way out of this, either by naming a program that can recover MPEG-2s, or a setting that I need change on one of the progs that I've already tried?

Thank you.

Preferred Solution: A data recovery program that can recover MPEG-2 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.)

I have a program install on my computer called "Med Journal" and I have been using this program for many years to record medical information on me and my family. Recently I tried to open the program and got an "Invalid Login Information" when I used my Username and Password. When I used the Advance System Care Shortcut Fixer, I learned that the shortcut on my computer has no "Target." I found the logo for the program in my Documents folder and the Type of document showed "Application" and the size of the folder is 1450KB so I think that this is the program. But, when I tried to open the program in the Documents folder, I got the same result "Invalid Login." (Also, there is an option for opening an unregistered version - my version is registered - by using "login" and "password" instead of the "real" login and password, but using "login" and "password" didn't work either.

Does anyone know how I can recover the data in Med Journal? Thanks for any and all replies.

I reinstalled the OS and forgot to back up my GPS data files.
I let windows format the HD (60GB) during the installation process.

Is there any chance, sheer luck, that the files might be recovered?

I fiddled with Testdisk/photorec and boy, does it find files!
It was over 20,000 when I shut it down. It filled an 8GB flash drive.
Some of the pictures were definitely from the previous installation.
But no GPS files.
Maybe the program had not reached the sectors where they are?
Or it is not even looking for them?

My GPS files are .gdb and .gpx, neither of which appear on the list at cgsecurity.org
I looked at the instructions for adding custom signatures but it is beyond my understanding.
In general, this program is beyond my understanding.
I had trouble with the drive selection RE save location, but got it to work.

Also, I made a post, same topic, on the cgsecurity.org forum.

A:Recover GPS Data Files

Hi Senseless

I saw your post at cgsecurity and then found this one by searching here for 'gps files'. You used a different name there so I was pleasantly surprised to see it was you

At this point the difficulty with your situation stems from the fact that you've written a substantial amount of stuff to the drive that you are trying to recover from. I loathe telling someone to try a solution that they have to purchase as opposed to an open source solution but in this case it is probably your last best chance.

Try Restorer Ultimate in demo mode and see if you can find your files with it...

It may see your old partition and it's structure prior to your format and reinstall.

If you can, you'll need to purchase it to do the recovery.

Hope this helps

I am looking for a good program to recover files. My hard drive died. I used OnTrack to recover the files. However it only reports 30 gigs of drive space even though the hard drive is 300 gigs. Everything that got recovered does not work. Every time I just look at the recovery folder windows explorer crashes, I don't even have to select a file. I tried several other recovery programs with no success. I am looking for a program that can restore the entire drive.

Also, could there be a problem with the MBR not reporting the correct size of the drive?


A:Need program to recover files

Perhaps you could try booting up with a Linux Live CD,
which may enable you to lift your personal files off,
onto an external USB drive.

Ubuntu 9.04 and Linux Mint 7, (Gloria), are pretty good distributions.

Others in these forums have previously suggested removing the hard drive from the computer
and hooking it up to another computer.

I prefer the Linux method, as it avoids interference by Windows.

Don't know about the MBR - others may be able to answer that point.

I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre K210 desktop. My hard drive ran out of room and now will not boot. I tired using 'safe mode' to delete some old files and I did recover some extra hard drive space but it still will not boot. (The .exe file that starts the OS appears to be hidden in a special 'Lenovo created partition and I am unable to find it in safe mode.)

I hooked my hard drive to another computer (using a USB device) to recover my data files but all of my data files are missing my latest saves? I seems that Lenovo creates a special type of file or partition called 'dynamic buffer.' I can only assume that my most recent saves are located there and are placed on 'C drive' when I 'release the dynamic buffer' (of course did not happen when the hard drive became full.)

Lenovo web site has a 'recovery' program but (if I understand correctly) it reformats the hard drive and reinstalls the OS. If this is true, all my data would be losted.

My best solution would be to be able to 'boot up' from my hard drive. I tried the OS cd to repair the boot problem but apparently it does not know where the special .exe file is and nothing is fixed.

The second best solution would be to find a software program that can extract my data from my hard drive. Anyone know of one?

I recently (yesterday) had an issue where my PC green screened and then wouldn't boot windows. After running several diagnostics to make sure it wasn't hardware related I decided to reinstall windows, problem, I have several important documents and media files on my hard-drive that aren't backed up yet (stupid I know), however, this isn't a problem as hp recovery manager presents me with the option to back up my files before I reset, brilliant. I create the backup media, then reset. After boot up everything runs smoothly until I try to use the media backup I created, Hp recovery manager says it can't run a media recovery as it's no longer supported after windows upgraded. My PC came installed with windows 10, I created the backup with the same version, literally everything is the same. For some reason I can't recover my data despite the fact that its sitting on my external hard-drive (in the hp back up format). Please help, if I'd known there was an issue I'd have removed the hard-drive and had my data recovered.

ALL program files have disappeared? That would pretty much mean the computer doesn't work at all. So, I'm thinking that's not exactly what's going on.

You'll need to describe the computer and the problem in a bit more detail including what operating system this is, what exactly is happening with the computer (does it boot?), what you've tried, etc.

If this is Windows XP or Vista, running System Restore to a point previous to this problem would be the first thing to try.

Still cleaning up after an infection by AntiVirus Soft and subsequent Restore & Recovery. I downloaded Recover My Files which shows up approximately 15,000 files that were inaccessible after the Restore. My question is for anyone who has experience with recovery programs. When these programs find and restore data what form is it in? The programs state that the data should be saved to a different drive than the one being searched, is the recovered information just raw data or what. As an example if you were trying to restore Quicken would the Quicken program be restored with the data in place and intact or just the raw numbers. In particular what I'm trying to restore is the program Family Tree Maker, I can find the raw information i.e. photos, etc. but what I want is the program operating with names, dates, photos etc as entered in the program.
I would appreciate any thoughts or advice, thanks in advance

A:Using a data recovery program

A recovery program will attempt to recover files that have previously existed on the drive. Any that can be recovered will simply be placed on the recovery drive as a bunch of files, you won't be able to re-install programs for example. All except very simple programs have to be installed into Windows, set up with registry entries etc by the program's installer, so need to be re-installed from the original media.

When you try to do the recovery after a system restoration, it's also possible that some of the files you want may have been corrupted by being overwritten during the restore. If that has happened to a file, when recovered it will be no good.

For a recovery of Quicken, you would have to set up Quicken again on the recovered system, then you would need to have recovered a good .QBW file and copy it across. You could avoid this if you had a Quicken backup on other media, you could restore the backup into the fresh installation of Quicken.

I have no experience of how Family Tree Maker manages its database, but the principle is the same. If you recover the data file(s) it uses, re-install the program from the original installation media, and copy the recovered data file(s) back to the folder(s) they were in before. If the program accepts this state of affairs, it will function as before. If the program fails to recognise the files restored this way, it may only be possible to restore from its own backup. Then if you haven't been making backups stored o... Read more

I'm trying to figure out how to watch a movie I have stored on my computer (MPEG) on my PlayStation Portable.

I've followed their directions in moving the files to the correct PSP folder and with the correct renaming, but nothing seems to work. I know this can be done and my PSP does play UMD and downloaded MP4 movies (I have downloaded an MP4 clip from the PSP website so they could show me how to download movies). I have been able to do everything on a PSP but this so far (excluding downloading a game demo, which I don't care about that much).

If you sent the nokia model to be repaired, odds are that you have lost it all, normally you can use tools to recover info of the card and phone tools for example pc file recovery and recovermy files. but as I found last year, if nokia recieve a damaged phone, they hook it up to a diagnostic machine, if it fails the test they remove the insides and replace them with new ones.

To see if this is the case, type *#0000# a set of numbers appear, look for the set in date format, is it similar to the date you purchased the phone give or take a couple of months?
