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...

I'm trying to recover an entire terabyte, and I don't want a recovery software which will scrap filenames and file structures, leaving an unintelligible mess to wade through. Is there a software which will preserve file names and structures, and possibly allow me to restore only particular directories?
 

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.

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.

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.

Yesterday my computer was reformatted *I'd prefer not to explain why * I've used Piriform's Recuva to uncover almost about 60 gigs of the files that were lost. However, I'm unable to open any of the files.

The files (ranging from word documents, excel files, image files, videos, etc) are in a folder, and are acknowledge as taking up space in my hard drive. They even have the previous modified times and so forth.

When I attempt to open up any file, the file does not open, even on a different computer. For example, when I open image files, an image comes up with a red "X" and it says that it's not the proper format.

I don't know what to do. I'm mostly concerned with all the pictures that were lost.

Hi

I have an AVI file saved on CD.

Because I wrote on the non data side with permanent marker 3 years ago, hairline marks have appeared on the data side where the writing is.

Obviously there are some corrupt sectors. I have tried ISO Buster, but the file it produces is not readable with Pinnacle Studio. Although Power DVD will play some of it ?

Is there a method to recover this file so I can read it again with Pinnacle Studio ?

Thanks
 

A:AVI file recovery ???

Short of buying a program that specifically tries to recover data from CD's by slow reading and re-reading of the sectors, about all you can do is to copy the file to your desktop using the slowest read speed that you can (if even copiable) and then run DivFix on it. Or, you could try running DivFix and having it save the repaired copy to the desktop.

http://divfix.maxeline.com/divfix.html

Waht kind of file did you make with ISO Buster? Why does it need to be read by Pinnacle Studio? (Not sure what you were trying to do here.) ISO Buster (full version) CDCheck, CDRoller, or any of many recovery programs should be able to extract any readable data from the CD and then produce an avi file. But the index will no doubt be damaged and DivFix will remove the old and rebuild it.

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.

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). Is anyone familiar with this tool, and, if so, is it safe and effective?
I have also found several purported solutions using the Command Prompt, which I am reluctant to try - I started using computers back in the dreadful DOS days and if Windows had not come along, I would be sending my mail via the USPS.

I have 2 hard drives, 1 x10Gb & 1 x 80Gb, I had to install a new operating sysyem.Windows XP. Formatted the 10Gb hard drive & backed up my Thunderbird e-mail account & my bookmarks from Firefox on the 80Gb hard drive, then copied it over my files etc to the re-formatted 10Gb hard drive. I then formatted the 80Gb & installed my new Windows XP O/S. Once done I checked the 10Gb hard drive & to my HORROR all the files etc that I had copied over were gone. Idiot that I am, I had inadvertantly formatted the 10Gb hard drive AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! I have PC Inspector File Recovery program & have run it. It recognizes some of the e-mails on HTML documents, but so far I cannot find my bookmarks. I have saved & copied them overthe e-mails I have found, but most of it is pure gobbledygook to me. The message is there, but with all the tech jargon within it. On some HTML documents it has multiple messages. Can anyone help me so that I can integrate these old e-mails into my newly set up Thunderbird account?
Does anyone know how to recognise the bookmarks I have copied over as well. are they in HTML format as well? if not what would the info I am looking for look like?
Maybe I have not explained this very well, if so I am sorry, but I am fairly new to all this & would appreciate any hepl given.

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

Hi all,

So here's a conundrum: my girlfriend is working on a slideshow for her sister's wedding and suddenly her computer froze up. When she got things under control again, she couldn't access the file, and got an "unsupported file format detected" message. She's using an old version of Corel Presentations. Any thoughts on how to recover the last six hours or so of work? Thanks in advance.

She could try unin/re-installing coral and see if that works.

So a while back after I got my new laptop, files kept getting mysteriously deleted. Sadly these were files that I needed desperately and now I can't get them back. I have no idea what deleted the files or how to get them back, but i'm hoping somebody here does.

Regards,

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:

I'm fairly thrifty with computers and technology, so now my great aunt who happens to be a nurse had her grandson - my cousin - delete some files that she needed for work, I immediately told her to stop using the machine so that the files arn't written over by something else, and it was deleted through windows so I know for a fact it's easily recoverable, but I need a program or utilite that is free..any suggestions? She is bringing the computer from her house which is like 1 1/2 hours away, so I don't really want to send her home without her files, so some fast help would be great.

Today I made a mistake. I was going to wipe a drive and install Windows 98 on it. The drive was this computers slave. The master has two partitions. The slave drive and second partition of the master are both about the same size. I moved everything from the second partition to the slave drive thinking it was the other way around and formatted it, then installed 98 to it. I then realized what I had done. The files that were on the second partition before were all graphics files(.png, .gif, .jpg, .bmp). I had cut them all and pasted them all to that seperate drive. What I want to know is it I am able to get the graphics files that were on the second partition of the master back. I have only done a couple things to the partition, which was putting three exe files on the partition.

Any way to get them back?

I am currently writing my thesis and saving my data on a USB flash drive as I am commonly using public computers that erase data after log outs. I stupidly left up some work on my personal laptop and saved the old verson of my word document after plugging in the flash drive - deleting my work I've done earlier today. Is there any way to recover this old data?

Thank you so much!

first of all hey guys!

right heres the story. my dad decided to reinstall windows from a partition on my hard drive to try and fix a tiny problem that really did not need a reinstall for (don't ask what it was cos it was really pathetic). My pc is an HP home computer. All of my stuff was in the hp_owner user area as i "was" the main admin and when windows was reinstalled all of my stuff has gone. All of my school work important documents and general important crap, however all of the other users areas documents were still there. So is there any chance of me being able to retrieve my data from the hard drive. The hard drive is partioned c and d with d being the recovery drive on a 160gb hard disk. hope any of you lads n lasses can help me.

cheers

see if this gets them back
