Preferred Solution: Recovery file

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.)

So I'll try to give an exact account of what has happened.

85 GB of ISO files in a folder on my desktop.
I drag and drop the folder into an opened folder window. (this folder is futher in my /C)
New folder is created and a message says some files is in use and stops immediately.
Close program, delete partial folder created.
Message says files too large for recycle bin do you want to perm. delete them. Yes.
Drag and drop folder again, nothings there when I open it.
The whole process took no time at all. Never once did I see a status bar even blink on the screen. No waiting time whatsoever.

Here's the fun part.

My drive properites shows a 85 GB decrease in size and no .iso files show up in a search.
I tired one file recovery freeware program and only 8 of the iso's even showed up. All were "over written" and not recoverable. Restarted the computer. Ran it again, now no iso's show up.

I had a pretty knowledgeable programer help me through the above steps and they tried several options I can not describe, because they involved command prompt and other things I'm clueless about. Unfortunately Windows is not their hot subject, so suggestions are more than welcome.
Any ideas as to where the heck the files went? Is it worth it to try other recovery programs or will that just increase my chance of actually writing over the iso's?

Hiya... I managed to lose one of my HDD's with all my multimedia on it and have been trying unsuccessfully to regain it with PCINSPECTOR.The HDD ISNT where my windows is installed and has become corrupted; something happened with the partition and it went kablooey.The problem i seem to be having with PCINSPECTOR is that it comes up with; for example "Cluster386.MP3" and it doesn't work. Is it something wrong with how im using PCI or something like that. I scan for drives...Choose "NONAME on FIXED DISK 2", scan for logical drives... and withing the first ten seconds it comes up with two partitions... Choosing the second one i get these files and the first one nothing. Scanning them for FAT. So basically am i using "PCI FR" properly am i doing something wrong and/or, is there a cheap, better alternative with results?Patch.Sorry guys bt i managed to fix this with the use of a different program... Awesome program I'm gonna plug it now "R Studio," well worth the investment... My Multimedia was worth the $80 odd...

A:Is there a file recovery software which preserves file names and directory structure?

Hmm; Normally any backup software would do this for you.

If you had a secondary copy (say other media to which you did a copy), then this would be a snap.

It sounds as if you only have the original media and you need to recover "whatever is possible".

on windows live messenger dus anybody know how to recover a file lost from a file sharing folder ????????
 

A:File Sharing Folder file recovery

From the help file:
"If your contact deletes a shared file, your local copy will be permanently deleted. However, if you delete a shared file, you can still recover it from the recycle bin. If you want to keep a file, copy it to a nonsharing folder."

So if you deleted it, it should be in the recycle bin as long as it hasn't been emptied. If the person who sent you the file deleted it, they should have it in their recycle bin.

Asus say that they cannot send a recovery disk because they only have them available for Windows 8 not 8.1.

I did however, save the recovery partitions (x2) on looks like a boot partition the other has a install.wim file. Is it possible to create a bootable ISO file with these recovery files so I can boot into Windows and make a fresh install.

Hi Guys ,

I thought that I would try backing up my operating system (s), using the Windows 7 File Recovery, option available in the control panel.

The top left-hand corner of the Windows 7 File Recovery page provides the option to "Create a System Image"

I have had no problems performing this action; in fact I have completed the process twice - Once, with my desktop, and once, with my laptop!

The process takes about 15 minutes, creating a folder, called "WindowsImageBackup" on my external hard drive (Different drives for laptop & desktop)!

What concerns me a little, is that there is no way of verifying the backup!

More alarming, is when I checked the Properties of this folder (Both desktop & Laptop), I find the details incomprehensible!

16 bytes 4.00 KB, (4096 Bytes) 1 File 5 Folders!

Looking at my C drives (Operating System) my laptop is 44.00 GBs; my Desktop 51 GBs

It looks as if the details (size of the backup) are hidden - I tried copying one of these folders onto a Flash Drive, and received a message, advising the Flash drive was not large enough!

All this does not give me too much confidence in the backup!

So what is going on !

A:Windows 8 - Backup & Recovery - Windows 7 File Recovery

Mine says the same thing. If you doubleclick on the WindowsImageBackup folder it will give you the message that you don't have permission - just click to continue. Drill down a couple more levels and you will see all of the catalog/backup files and it will list the sizes of each. I've never had one fail in Win7 and Win8 when restoring an image backup.

I basically have two images for each computer (one with clean install and all apps installed and configured and one that is current.) Worst case scenario would be having to go back to the first one but at least I wouldn't have to reinstall all of my apps.

If you're not getting permissions errors, and files with known extensions fail to open with otherwise completely compatible programs, sorry to say but it sounds like the data is all or mostly corrupt even though the headers seem good.

If you still have the drive in the state of possible recovery you might try it again with another recovery program and see if the results are any better.

Hi,

I was trying to help out a friend with one problem and ran into another one.

His wi-fi was not working and i could only put this down to the driver - the ipconfig function told me that the media was connected and working properly, but he could not connect wirelessly to my network - I know the network was fine as this is how I am connected.

So I decided after trying to download a new driver to reinstall windows, but the repair function rather than a totla reformat.

I have done this in the past and had no problems, but for some reason on this occasion, all the previous files on his disk are now hidden and inaccessible,

How can I go about recovering them? The C: drive says it is full, but if you serch for documents with the filenames of what he had, then they are not visible.

The data HAS to be there as there were files on there from before the formatting.

The only thing that I may have done was to setup a separate user account but I have tried to undo this and still cannot get to the files.

Can anyone suggest how to get access to them?

Many thanks,

Mark

so did you format the drive ? or did you just do the recovery ?

if you formatted the data is gone if you did the recovery everything should be there but might have some weird user rights.

as it seems you cant even see the files can you ?

Well, I was trying to install Windows on my secondary harddrive and the installation failed. Now it seems all the files on the end of the harddrive are either missing or damaged.

I have 1 harddrive - 160gb that I have been using to boot up Vista & Ubuntu.

The 2nd hard drive - 300gb had 2 paritions. A 20gb at the front and the reamining 280 at the end. I decided I wanted to install XP on the 20 GB. the installation failed and I gave up on it. I get back into windows and its showing the harddrive as only 128gb and 128gb free. I probably only had 60 gigs of stuff on that, and it seems that is the amount that is missing.

When I browse the HDD on linux it is only showing Windows install files. I know i did not select that partition when I installed, but it seems windows did put stuff on it.

Has this happened to anyone? Any suggestions on recovery? The files are not extremely important, enough that I'm going to pay a heck of a lot of money to get back, but they are really wanted and would make my life a lot easier to get back.

Thanks in advance,

Jason

So, in order to extract my files, I purchased a enclosure and put my laptop hard drive in it. When I connect it to my desktop and browse that hard drive. When I try to open the "Owner" (although "Owner" is not the name of the user name that I had on Windows...) folder, the most recently modified one, it says access is denied. It also says the folder is empty, but I am assuming that is since access is denied, it won't let me see what's in that folder.

Anyway, my question is... how do I get my files off my laptop hard drive. I really don't care if I have to format, I just want to get the files in My Documents off the laptop hard drive before I format.

Thank you,

Suraj

Hi, It sounds like the program may have only found shortcuts, or markers, to the files but no actual data....I might be wrong, though.

Do you have a file path for any of what it did show you that was 1kb?

Maybe we can tell from just some of the results....no need to post a huge amount.

If the files were pictures, there are a few tricks involved.

This could be what you are seeing,, too:

Pirate Version

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have received continuous reports of a pirate version of Recover My Files that is circulating the Internet. It saves files of 1kb (and probably does other unknown things to your PC). It sounds like you have it.

I would say that your data is recoverable it you were to purchase a real copy. If you can preview the files in the preview window, then it is 100% that they can be saved.

Hi

I have recently had to recover some deleted files which I have managed to do much to my relief, however when I go to open the files in the software they were created in it comes up with the message unknown file type.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why that might be.

Thanks

I just installed my copy of vista, I couldn't do an update, because when it restarted for the first time, it gave me an error, and shut down. So I did a clean install, running fine now, but I lost all of my files that I was intending on keeping with the update. I know, I know. I should've backed my data up, but I didnt anticipate a problem. Anyway, A while back there was a piece of software I saw on here that could recover some files from up to I believe it was 3 previous formattings. There are some pictures that I would like to recover, and if at all possible, some of my music. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:File Recovery

A clean install essentially wipes a hard drive clean with a format. I don't know if it is possible to retrieve lost data like that. Once a drive is formatted and the previous data overwritten on the disk, the data is nearly unrecoverable. I know of some law enforcement departments that have drive recovery software that can find bits and pieces of data, I'm not sure if it is available for the consumer market.

How or can you recover files that were accidentally deleted? We did not find out they were deleted until recently and I believe they were deleted a month or so ago. The OS is Windows XP Home.

Hi
Wonder if anyone has any advice, my PC failed today, it turned itself off and refused to start, it wouldnt recognise the operating system. I was advised to reload using the recovery disc, it now works fine. My question is, is it possible to recover any of the lost files, photos, music etc. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks

Oli

A:File Recovery

Possibly, yes. But probably no.

It depends upon several factors, such as the reason for the failure in the first place. The next factor is how you installed the Operating System. Did you reformat? If so, it just got tougher to recover the data.

And finally, by reinstalling the Operating System you overwrote some of the data, making recovery very difficult. And if you installed other programs, even more difficult.

I accidentally deleted some files on my C drive like BOOT.INI and other files (don't ask me how). The next day when I tried to reboot my computer, the OS wouldn't load. I used the HP System Recovery to reinstall the OS and other software that came with my PC. I thought that with Recovery, I would only lose my software and some of my files in the Documents and Settings folder but after I finished Recovery and rebooted, there was nothing on my C-drive. I tried file_recovery.exe from softperfect.com but it couldn't find anything. Why wasn't I able to recover any files and What is the best free File Recovery Software? And is there any way to get my data back? Thank you!

While I was running a USB drive, Microsoft (ever helpful), notified me that there was a problem with that drive and ran a "repair" thing which seems to have converted all my files on the USB drive to .CHK files - which, of course, do not show up on the drive and for which Microsoft (ever helpful) has provided no means of converting the CHK files back into their original format. After I finally found the files using Recuva and moved one back on to the USB drive Microsoft (ever helpful) notifies me that attempting to open this "System" file can damage my system. Seeking a way to restore the files, I have found a tool from Easus which they claim can do the conversion (http://www.easeus.com/file-recovery/chk-file-recovery.html).
