Accidental recycle format HP Omen

Q: Accidental recycle format HP Omen

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?

Preferred Solution: Accidental recycle format HP Omen

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.)

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
 

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.
with this http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/113967-ssd-alignment.html

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

one advantage of this is you lose all the bloatware

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.

We got McAfee installed and thought we had removed Norton, but we see that the Desktop shows he has the Norton Recycle Bin and does not have the Windows Recycle Bin. And when he deletes a file, it doesn't go to the Norton Recycle Bin.

1) You can go open recycle bin and then empty it. It just takes one more step to accomplish it.

2) If you have ccleaner you can restore or just clean with ccleaner itself. Honestly I've not used recycle bin for over a month.

I had a problem deleting an older version of Firefox. The Firefox Setup .exe file was stuck in the Recycle Bin, it wouldn't delete and it wouldn't restore. Believing that the Recycle Bin was corrupt, I used this method from the DOS prompt:

rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin

I refreshed my Desktop and when I clicked on the Recycle Bin. While the file appeared to be missing, the Recycle Bin would not load properly so I restarted my computer.

Now when I click on the Recycle Bin icon, it points to my entire computer (exactly the same as clicking on "Computer" off the Start Menu) instead of the Recycle Bin folder.

How can I restore the Recycle Bin icon so that it shows only the contents of the Recycle Bin?

Good afternoon,
Hopefully someone has experienced this and can offer advice.

A user is deleting files, but they are not appearing in the recycle bin

- user is deleting from her computer, and not a network location, or flash drive
- computer is not partitioned - only has a "C" drive
- computer is W7 32-bit
- user is not a local admin
- Use has 6 different recycle bins (right-click on RB desktop icon > properties > recycle bin location); some of the locations are "My Pictures", "My Videos" etc.... We are not able to manage the size of
these locations.
- all of the RB locations are set to "Custom Size"
- have tried:
a. deleting everything out of the RB
b. (running as admin) RD /S /Q C:\$Recycle.bin
c. set to view hidden & system files/folders, gone to "C" and deleted the $RECYCLE.BIN folder. clicked yest at all the prompts, including: Do this for all current items

** after both b & c, rebooted the computer

So far, nothing has worked. Might anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm trying to resolve an issue involving a bunch of "illegitimate" Windows Live streams (discovered in a Stream Armor scan).

In trying to resolve the issue, I've deleted several leftover Windows Live files and registry entries (after making a backup) that weren't removed when I uninstalled Windows Live a few months ago.

For whatever reason, the files won't leave the recycle bin, and the streams are still active.

I looked inside $Recycle.Bin and found that there's a locked Recycle Bin inside it. Is this normal? Can I delete it? How?

A:locked Recycle Bin inside $Recycle.Bin

I've never had a locked recycle bin inside my recycle bin so I'd say it's not normal

Greetings group.
I have a 2 month old hard drive that failed on my desktop PC, taking My Documents with 7 years worth of data. I had just moved the folder to the new drive and hadn't gotten a chance to backup yet.
I'm trying to check Recycle bins on my External hard drives to see if I ever had even a partial Documents folder on one of them..
Problem: All 3 of my external hard drives have multiple recycle bins. All of the recycle bins show the same content as my local C Drive on my laptop. I am attaching 2 screenshots for your review. One shot is of the recycle bins on external drive, the other shot is a screenshot of the recycle bins on my C drive on laptop.
I'm logged in as Administrator because my normal login cannot access any of these recycle bins. And my normal login is in the Admin group. Using Windows Explorer as Administrator, I'm unable to see the Recycle bins. I can see them with my regular login. Very odd.

I'm so desperate for help. Any ideas appreciated.

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.

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.

RELEVANCY SCORE 37.2

I am on the Rogers Heavy Flex Mobile Internet plan, and it has worked great. Until I we went 15 GB over the limit, we cut down our usage, but then I was playing Xbox and a friend told me I could download a game without wifi. I foolishly believed him, and turned the Xbox on offline mode but the download wouldn't begin, so I put the Xbox back on online mode and forgot to pause the 68 GB game download... Two days later I found out and discovered the overage charge would be close to 400$ + the 145$ cost of the plan. It's going to be very hard to afford, so I was wondering if there was a way I could cut the overage price down... Maybe they'll realize it was an accident if I call them?
 

A:Accidental Data Over Usage

Calling them to explain the situation and see if you can work out some sort of agreement is the only thing that we can suggest.

RELEVANCY SCORE 37.2

I have two hard disk drives. Both now have Windows XP on them. Due to an initial botched Windows XP installation that was supposed to go onto a new and seperate hard drive I somehow ended up with two boot entries that refer to the same Windows installation.

Currently upon boot up my screen shows the following:

Code:
250GB Windows XP
300GB Windows XP
Windows XP Professional
Windows XP Professional
There is only one WINDOWS directory on each drive.

I tried rebuilding bootcfg but that didn't take care of the problem. I should only have those top two entries. How do I get rid of the other two?

Further more, how do I get "300GB Windows XP" to be at the top of the list?

A:Accidental Multiboot disk

Boot into windows. Click start>run. Type in msconfig. Click the boot.ini tab. Click the Check all boot paths button. Exit and reboot. The erroneous entry should be removed.

If it remains, boot into windows. Click start>rite click My Computer>Properties>Advanced tab>under startup and recovery>settings. In the system startup box, click edit. If you see two lines under “operating systems” that start with “multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS= ”, delete one of them, . You should also see two that start with "multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=" delete one of those, exit and reboot

To make "300GB" the first entry, follow same procedure except this time highlight that entry and click the set as default button

See boot.ini for further details.
