Accidentally Deleted needed folders in Drive D!

Q: Accidentally Deleted needed folders in Drive D!

Ok so this is what happened. Everyday my windows vista does an automatic files backup. It worked fine until one day a thing popped up during the backup and it said my backup failed because my drive D was full. So I came on here and someone said it was safe to delete all the files on my drive D, so I did. The files still wont work now because there is no folder for the backup files to go into. I tried doing the backup to another Drive, like drive C, but it wont give me that option. How can I recover my folders in Drive d?? Which ones were there?? This was about a month ago so I dont think I can recover them. I need to backup my files but there is an error everytime.

I just started using a new computer with Windows 7 Pro a couple of weeks ago. My old computer was XP and I'm not used to the interface yet. I was moving folders around to tidy things up. In one folder, 'Work', placed under Libraries >
Documents > My documents, I had earlier accidentally made a new folder. I now deleted this. Since deleting an empty folder should go fast I started worry when it took a while. When finished the 'Work'-folder was empty, except one little folder!

I went straight to the Recycle bin. All I could find was folders and files I previously deleted on purpose. The folders I accidentally deleted from within 'Work' was not there.
I tried to search for files I have been working for the last weeks. Nothing.
I tried to 'Recover lost or deleted files' http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Recover-lost-or-deleted-files But "There are no previous available"
What can I do? Where are my files, all my work from the last weeks?

A:Accidentally deleted folders not in Recycle bin

Hi,
 
If you want to get your lost data, it is recommended to contact the data recovery professional for help.
 
Just as a kind reminder, be careful when you delete files.

I am running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3.

The back-story: I was working with a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel (Enterprise) 2007, and I had it saved as a 97-03 document (Compatibility Mode). When I saved it, it said "minor loss of fidelity" and that some cell styles would need to be changed. It has been saying this every time I save the document for quite a file. I always just say "OK." This time, I decided I should try to figure out which cells it is referring to. It said there were 11 such cells, but didn't bother to tell me which ones. So I saved a second copy of the file, as "filename exp.xls," to experiment. Only, here's the problem: When I saved this second copy, it gave me the "loss of fidelity" warning, and I clicked Cancel, not realizing this would prevent the second copy from saving. Now, I deleted one of the sheets in my workbook, and I saved the file. Turned out that sheet was the one with the errors, because it didn't give me the warning that time. But it also turned out that the sheet I had deleted (which contained a lot of information!) was now gone, because the back-up hadn't saved as I had intended it to.

The process: I did a System Restore to about six hours ago, to before I had made this deadly mistake, hoping it would revert my workbook and resolve the problem. Unfortunately, it looks like System Restore (although it was successful) doesn't revert any of your files to their older versions.

If its not used for system files you may be ok. But you should always have an image backup of the entire HD. Its a given in this day and age.PS its no accident as its not that easy to do accidentally. System_drv is normally the boot.If you run diskmanager it will show all the partitions. you have and which is bootable.

I was reinstalling Windows Vista today (fresh install), and during the drive selection I inadvertently clicked "delete" while the secondary drive was selected instead of the primary. This is my only backup drive. It is, of course, now not recognized as a drive. I tried booting up Ubuntu and using Gparted to fix the problem, but the only option it gives me is creating a new partition. I then downloaded PC Inspector File Recovery and ran it overnight; it found 16000+ files, but all of them are named cluster1013651.* and so forth, and all of them appear to be corrupted. Windows seems to know what type of file each is, as their extensions are intact, but they will not open properly. Another weird issue is that the vast majority of files are .xls, but I don't use Excel.

Is there some utility that can repair the drive so that Windows detects it again? All the data is still there, the drive was never formatted or written to in any way.

Misread the drive label and deleted the partition on an USB external 80GB SATA drive. Nothing else has been done to the drive.

I did this when using Macrium Reflect Rescue disc.

I know I've seen mention of a program that can recover the partition table but I've not found it yet.

I tried EASUS Data Recovery Wizard but that didn't do it. I thought maybe Paragon had something but I've not had any luck so far. Any help appreciated. Thanks

A:Accidentally deleted my recovery drive contents.

You can't. Recovery partitions are generally full and that is not a problem. It won't cause you any problems that you deleted it but you just won't be able to restore your computer back to factory state without ordering a set of recovery discs from HP.

Hi, I accidentally deleted the volume on my 3rd hard drive and now my Windows Vista PC won't even recognize the drive. How can I fix this?

The problem started when I put my old Barracuda 160 gig drive in a usb external case and couldn't get it to work until I put the jumpers on 7-8. The problem was, it was asking me to format the drive which was full of files which I wanted to retrieve. Through a series of now obvious mistakes, I first shrunk the volume backwards, I meant to shrink only 50 MB but deleted all but 50 MB and then stupidly deleted the entire volume.

What I need now is to at least be able to have my PC recognize the drive again and to be able to restore the full volume but would ideally like to still be able to retrieve the data, if that's even possible at this point. Also, why does, or did my computer only recognize this drive in the 7-8 jumper configuration? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony

Hi.
I'm not sure this is the right forum to post this, if not let me know.

The Problem: I accidentally deleted some important data from a hard drive. I desperately want to rescue at least some of it. It is a folder containing a large number of digital photos.

This is what I've done:
1. accidentally deleted files
2. deleted the three partitions that were on the drive and made the drive into one partition
3. formatted the drive using Windows Disk Management tool in Administrative Tools (Windows XP). I used the "Quick Format" option rather than the "Full Format". The file system of the drive (also before formatting) is: NTFS
4. Currently there is new data on the drive. I'm using it as a backup drive now.

This all happened a few days ago. Only now I have realized the goof up.

Please, if there is any way you know of that I might best be able to salvage any of the lost data, I'd REALLY appreciate it.

Thanks!

I've signed up to this site just for this issue which I've had for over a year. Here are the details:

Samsung laptop RF511
While I was cleaning out all the extra programs the laptop came with, I accidentally deleted something that was crucial for my disk reader. Whenever I pop in any data disk or movie, the computer struggles for a few minutes then gives up, as if nothing has been inserted. Oddly enough... I don't believe this always happens with music CDs. The computer also hasn't be able to let me burn anything on a blank disk. I often receive the "Please insert a blank disk" message, when one is already inserted.

This is getting really frustrating since I have a lot of data to backup and absolutely need help! I'm not a programmer and would need thorough explanation and a walk-through for this please.

I went to the Samsung website and looked at what might be missing (had no idea what I was doing...) I downloaded something called the BIOS updater, which did nothing unfortunately.

Please let me know if something sounds familiar and how I might be able to replace this bloody program I foolishly deleted!
Thanks a million.

I don't think I was clear enough in my explanation.... I don't require a program to copy/read/burn. The problem is the laptop itself. It does not recognize any disk I inset. Nothing pops up on my E: drive....

I created a couple of new administrator accounts today for purposes of testing out a game installer that wasn't working. When I deleted the accounts, I selected to delete files. The accounts no longer appear in Control Panel/User Accounts. But when I go to my C drive/Users, there are folders in there for these accounts which were supposedly deleted, along with all of their files. Can I just remove these folders from C/Users?

A:User accounts deleted still have folders in C drive

Hello Nikilet,

Yes, it's safe to just manually delete them since the user account was deleted.

Not sure why they never get deleted automatically when they were selected to be deleted in Vista, but good news is that in Windows 7, they do get deleted when selected.

If you deleted the pics from your hard disk, install it as a slave on another pc, download getdataback (http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-faq.htm) and install it on the new pc, and see if the files are on the drive, then you can retrieve them to your friends hard disk.

Good luck!

If the OS is installed in drive C:, there should be a copy here:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\explorer.exe

While holding the Ctrl key, click on a New Task. The MSDOS window will be displayed. Copy and Paste the following at the prompt and press Enter:

Copy C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\explorer.exe C:\Windows

Let me know how it goes.

hi guys,

it's a little complicated. i have win xp pro sp2 and suse 9.0 on my computer (PT4, 1.8 ghz) installed. now i wanted to uninstall suse 9.0 to test mandrake 10.0. i didn't know what to do ,so i asked a friend. he said you need only to delete this two partions and all is gone. the result: i couldn't boot up my computer anymore because the system was booted by the grub bootloader.
i needed to access win so i decided ( i had still some start up floppy disk ) to install win xp sp1 on my d-drive in order to access dive c. it worked. before i tried to boot and install from the installation disk but this didn't work. after " windows is inspecting your hardware" the screen went black.
now what can i do? on my d-drive are still this two partion from suse 9.0. the computer tells me, it's free space but i have no access. how can i recover this space to drive d?
what will happen when i delete win xp sp1 again? can i still boot up?

thanks a lot for your help.

and boot then go to the recovery console and type "fixmbr". If you are going to play around with linux as a second os I suggest you learn more about dual booting. Of course, after you install MDK 10 you may not use anything else. I installed mandrake 9.2 and haven't used my xp box in quite some time.

So I have an ipod touch 4, and on my old computer the apps I downloaded were saved in one spot. Then, when I got my new computer, newer apps started saving in a new spot, and whenever an app was updated, it would be moved to the new folder.

I had assumed that all of my apps that I was still using had either been updated, or that just using them would lead to them being moved to the new folder, and so deleted the old folder, but I am now aware that that is not the case and some of my apps are no longer present on my computer.

Fortunately I have all of my apps backed up on my external hard drive, even those ones, though I'm worried that those ones may not be the most recent versions, and that in the case of some of my games the save files may be significantly far behind.

Oddly enough, the apps still appear in my itunes folder fine, other than that they have an exclamation point next to them and when I click "get info" they can't be found, but they still appear on my ipod and work fine and have the most recent saves, despite having synced my ipod to my computer multiple times since then.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I might fix this before I somehow end up losing the saves on these games?

I accidentally deleted my webres.dll while cleaning my PC.

- I've redownloaded it, but I don't know where to place it!

A:Accidentally deleted my webres.dll?

What does it belong to? It's not a part of Windows so must belong to an installed program or driver.

I had to recently replace my power supply. When I restored my system everything that had been added since 2004 was either inop or gone. In the mean time my wife or son opened facebook or my space and hooked into a virus called "Protection Center" along with its buddy "Defense Center". I tried all sorts of ways to remove these tough viruses and finally wiped the hard drive of most things on it. Once I got control of my PC back I began reloading all that was lost including my security programs. I think I erased some important functions while I was trying to get rid of the virus. Is there a free program available from windows,HP or compaq or someone reputable that can show me what I am missing such as dll's or registries? Can they also show me how to repair these lost functions without having me download some program that is "free" and then wants 10-20-30 dollars or more to actually fix the problem?

thank you Den:

Hello everyone!

I had a dual boot on my laptop (running windows 7 and arch linux). I decided to get rid of the linux partitions and accidentally deleted the EFI partition. As a result, my laptop now doesn't recognize that there is any operating system on the computer.

What I have tried: I am currently using this: http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/52515-windows-8-cant-start-due-missing-efi-partition.html and the post by Genet with Option 3 since I allocated the space back to my disk C. I am running into an error part way thru the solution though where after I do "create partition efi size=260", it comes back with "MSR and EFI partitions are only supported on GPT disks. Convert the selected disk to GPT and try again". I don't know if I want to do that because its my local disk C...don't want to mess that up and change the format of that.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Help, I deleted some extensions and now my windows media player doesn't play any of the normal files it used to play. Also, those icons that appear on the bottom right of my screen dont appear anymore. Does anybody know if and where I can find out
what the default extensions were and get them back? Thanks!

PS. someone told me to type "sfc /scannow" in start-run but it would always tell to me insert my windows xp home edition cd, which i did, and it never worked.
