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.

I am currently using ubuntu 14 I installed it to dual boot with windows 8.1 but something went wrong on install and I deleted / corrupted my Windows 8.1 install before I made a recovery disk.

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.

Any help or advice appreciated.

A:Create ISO file from recovery install.wim file

Probably. Depends exactly what you have aside from the install.wim. I expect your install.wim will be for 8.0 if it came with the machine.

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.

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.

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,

Because I am not doing so well with a RAID device, in the past I mirrored a hard drive with another. I had to break the RAID, and left it that way for a while. Today I tried to rebuild the RAID, and accidently got the old HDD to mirror over the HDD that was in use out of the RAID. There were a couple of music and picture files in that which is lost.

What advice is there to recover the files in this case? What are the chances of getting files back? So far I am trying NTFS file recovery, trying not to install it on the computer.

A:File Recovery help?

Since your data was on a Windows partition, based on my experience at doing this successfully, my suggestions are the following:
1) Download and install the trial version of RecoverMyFiles from Runtime Software in MS Windows.
2) Right-click the RecoverMyFiles shortcut and select "Run as Administrator"
3) Select the option to Recover a Drive
4) You will get a list of drive, scroll down to find the one for your USB stick or memory card
5) Select Automatic Driver recovery, press Start button
6) It will run for a while but when done, will show a directory tree in the left pane. Do NOT interrupt it.
7) When done, browse the folders in the directory tree -- and be SURE to check the filesizes of the files you want to recover. If the filesize is zero, the file is trashed and you will NOT be able to recover it.

If the files look OK, you will need to contact Runtime Software to purchase a license for the recovery. You won't have to reinstall the app; instead, they will email you an activation code which you can use to turn on the recovery feature.

According to their website, the "standard" version of the app is $70 USD. They also have a Pro version for $99 dollars, but if you go to the website below, you can compare the features and (at least for me) the extra cost wasn't worth it:

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.

Any ideas about the best software to use to recover files from a re-formatted HD FAT32? Machine was running Win 98SE and upgraded to 2K Pro. Want to recover WAB. Thanks in advance.
 

A:File Recovery

There would appear to be a demo version of a particular program here :

Alternatively try this general Free / Shareware site :

http://www.webattack.com

Cannot recommend any specific progs. merely used Google.

You could also perhaps run http://www.google..com

And use it to look for reviews on any software that interests you to see how easy / effective others found it.

Thanks ahead of time for any and all help provided.

Just yesterday my mom had a Total Security 2009 download on her computer. Against her wishes of course!!! She did a System Restore with My Backup which was an option for her. Well, the backup only 1/2 way worked. A few of my pictures and music files made it onto the new restored computer. However, 1000's of family photos, music files, and much more are completely lost. We would like to know how to get these files back. I would use a recovery program, I am afraid that the virus, "Total Security 2009" will reappear onto her computer.

Is there any way I can go into Safe Mode and pick these files up. All of the missing files are in folders if this helps.

If you know how to do this, can you send me a set by step inxstructional page on here. So I can print it out on my computer and get my mom's files back.

Thanks so much to all those who help or try to help.

A:Help!!! File Recovery

First you have to clean up the virus. Once done, then right click the Start Button and choose Explore. Under Documents and Settings, there should be different users, Open up the users Documents/My Pictures folder and browse these folders for the lost pictures. You can also do a Search for any files if you know the name of one.

I think you need to take ownership of the files ?

Hi,

I feel very embarrassed and angry with myself. I have recently bought a new MSI lady, so I negletted the HP one a bit, and now I am surely paying the price.

What I thought was a backup of 80Gb of data I need to transfer to the new laptop, turned out to be an empty folder. This was not created by the WD software as it claimed it does. Now, I have lost 80Gb of data, some of which I will just never see again if there's no way to recover those files.

I need and application to recover my deleted files and folders, that includes almost any extension one can think of. Now I have tried RecoverMyFiles, but for some reason it does the scan, and I can actually see the lost or deleted files and folders, but it never actually ends the scanning process, and the only option left is to cancel scanning.

It does however let me save the files it did found, and I can see the files being saved, but the same thing, it never ends the whole saving process.

Now, I am saving the files to an external drive as it suggests that the recovered files not to be saved to the same volume it is recovered from, just for interest sake.

Please can you recommend some application you know works for certain to recover lost data, even from a format?

I'll use anything, as long as I am sure it DOES work effectively.

Thanks.

Have you tried "Recuva" - it is a free program from Piriform - the same people who write Ccleaner. I have used "Recuva" several times to recover all types of file with no problems. Here is link - Piriform's recuva
It says it will recover files after a format but I have not tried it so not sure if it will work after a format.

Anyone care to recommend the best file recovery app out there? Freeware/Purchase - either way.
 

A:Best file recovery app?

I couldn't say who the best is, but I've downloaded and tried at least a dozen over the years.
And one that I always seem to use the most is Bad Copy Pro
http://www.jufsoft.com/badcopy/

I've used it mostly to recovery off of floppy disks. But it does a pretty good job of getting as much data as possible.

Lastly, doesn't matter how good a recovery program is, if there is physical damage, data simply cannot be read off it. These programs just try to read and compile as much data back as possible.
------

Also of note, though slightly off topic. I use Beyond Compare a LOT for getting data off drives. In these cases, the drives are more or less "good", but may have bad sectors here and there.
This program is excellent for "comparing" your backup folder with the drive you are recovering from. Select all the files you want and have it syncronize. If there are any files it can't copy, it just skips them and moves on. Unlike, say, a plain Windows copy where, if one file fails, the entire copy quits. Beyond Compare just keeps going. I love that program.

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 ?

My friend accidently deleted a bunch of image files she wanted to keep and was wondering if there are any free file recovery programs, or if necessary, a file recovery program she can purchase to restore the deleted files.

I use GetDataBack.
Not free but the eval version will let you see the deleted files.

Hello -

I am having my trouble with my laptop. When I bootup my laptop (XP Home) I get the login screen, but NO usernames show up. The right hand side is blank, completely blank.

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

I hope one of them does what you want?

Yeah, I have a question. If I've deleted a file from the recycle bin and I'm trying to recover it...well, I used a couple of different apps, but few of them had any results. Only one program turned up a [filename].lnk shortcut, but it can't find the original data. This was deleted more than a month ago, so I'm afraid my computer must've overwritten it. Anyone know what I can do, if there's any possible way I can still retreive this file, even if the recovery apps can't find it? I'm using Windows Vista as an OS, if that's of any help.
 

A:Ugh, file recovery

unless your computer not been used at all for a month i dont think you have any chance at all,sorry

I had a Dell PC that has Windows Service Pack 2 installed on it. But it failed to start up recently because I deleted important system files by mistake when I was cleaning virus manually. Then I tried to repair using recovery console but it didn't work. Later on I was trying to repair it using Windows CD. In the middle of repairing, it asks for a file called ialmudlg.exe. I downloaded that file gave it to the installer but it didn't continue the installation and again asks for the file. To be honest, I don't know what this file is. The thing is I need to get my important files in My documents and desktop folders. How can I do that? Or can I finish the repair installation? I have another Windows OS on D:\ now.

Oh I got it! I got it! Thanks God. Read the following article if you need answer on this.

I'm trying to restore some pictures from an external hard drive. I've used about a dozen freeware tools to try to do this (PC Inspector, R-Undelete, Recuva, FreeUndelete, Easy Photo Recovery...)

Does anyone know if the software you pay for would be any better at recovering the files?

If not how much does a recovery service cost, and do they make you pay if they can't get it back?

Thanks,

Matt

My computer (windows 7) got infected and after a system cleanup with a virus scanner and a run of CC cleaner, the system won't start, it restarts after the 'windows' logo appears. The windows repair doesn't fix the problem.

I took the hard drive out of the laptop and hooked it up to another compouter running XP with a SATA to USB case.

I can see the files but everything that matters to me is in my user file and I get an access denied when I want to open it. I can open the public files and do whatever I want...but it is useless.

Is it because I'm using a winXP computer to salvage data on a Win 7 drive? Is there any way to get access to my files?

Thank you
