URGENT: Corrupted Windows on HDD, need recycling bin files- HELP!!!

Q: URGENT: Corrupted Windows on HDD, need recycling bin files- HELP!!!

I've got a hdd that had the majority of the Windows and My Documents files sent to the Recycling Bin. The hdd gets a NTLDR error message when I try to boot from it, I've tried repairing the boot.ini, the ntdetect.com, and the NTLDR files, but it still gives the same error message. Basically, Windows is screwed and unrecoverable. The issue is however that I need to get the My Documents files from out of the Recycling Bin. I've tried booting the hdd as a slave on my computer and going into the C:\Recycler file but all it does is show the files that are in my master's Recycling Bin. I know these files are in the Recycling Bin on the slave drive, god knows SOMEWHERE, but I can't figure out how to get to them. Can anyone help me on this? Please? Pretty please?

Preferred Solution: URGENT: Corrupted Windows on HDD, need recycling bin files- HELP!!!

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

I'm not sure if this will solve the problem but it's worth a try.
http://download2.lsoft.net/Undelete-Demo-Full.exe

This is the latest version (demo) of a program I used to use called [email protected] Undelete. It is a recovery tool for deleted files. I stress that I haven't used it in a while and this version never. Also I don't know how far the demo stretches but as I said worth a try.

I've just found out that the folder containing my baby's photos from her first year cannot be opened displaying "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" when I try to open it from my Windows 7, whereas when I access it through Ubuntu (I mount the files from windows to access it) it opens it empty
I remember that a couple of days ago I was rearranging those pictures from the folder in sub-folders by cutting and pasting from the main folder to the sub-folders, but I guess I did that from Ubuntu, not from Windows, where they are stored. I first thought that I have lost them and trued to recover using software program but it did not detect them as deleted. I have no idea what to do and these are really important for me and my family.
I also tried to find them in via the windows search but to no avail. I also checked ubuntu but nothing came out:(

If anyone has any suggestions please share them, but do make as simple expalantion/suggestion as possible since, obviously, I am a dumb'ss when it comes to computers.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Hello everyone,

I have the weirdest problem and no matter what I do, it doesn't go away!
Whenever I copy some files over USB (from USB or SATA to USB), some of them are copied corrupted...
I have changed my main-board (both Asus P5W DH Deluxe), used different USB hosts from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 & on-board to Express Card.
Installed a hotfix from Microsoft for NVidia main boards (which attempts to solve USB HDD problems).
Re-installed Windows but still no luck! My files get corrupted during transfer.
Even disabled my Antivirus but still the problem exists...

My specs:
Asus P5W DH Deluxe MB
Intel Core 2 Quad - Q6600
Asus Geforce 8800 GTS
Windows 7 - x64 SP1

Please tell me any solutions you might have, this problem is killing me and I don't know how to solve it.

Thanks in advance!

I have a quick concern i recently discovered that files deleted from my ftp server or if another computer delets a file from a network share these files are instantly removed rather than being sent to the recycling bin. is there a setting or utility that will take these remotely deleted files and send them to the recycling bin ??

A:How Can i Assure That Files Removed From My FTP Server Are Sent To Recycling bin ??

As the recycle bin exists on your computer's hard drive, only file stored on the hard drive go to the recycle bin when deleted (there is one recycle bin for each partition). Items deleted from a network drive are not sent to the Recycle Bin.

This sounds like a old feature that was in pro rat virus as a grief tool, are you able to view system restore points or have they gone missing? If your system restore points have disappeared then you may have fallen to a java drive by or somehow been infected in some other form! It is a shot in the dark but i had to recover from those same symptoms a few years ago! If it is a rat it is FUD hence the reason you can not pin point a problem!

Hello all,

My copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on my laptop has been having some strange issues lately. I cannot run .msi files, and device manager never populates a full list. Sometimes (rarely, but it does repeat) Windows Explorer will freeze, and if I attempt to close it and reopen it using task manager, the UI reloads, but whenever I click on a folder it claims Windows cannot load explorer. Restarting fixes that. I scheduled and ran CHKDSK, and it repaired a few bad sectors, but it didn't fix any of these problems. I have run CCleaner (both the regular cleaner and registry fixer) and defragmented my hard drive until it's only 1% fragmented. I then tried sfc /scannow, and it read a bunch of corrupted files but could not repair them. I read that to fix sfc, you must download and run Windows System Update Readiness Tool. It has been running and "Searching for Updates on this Computer" for about an hour now, and I'm getting concerned that it's just not doing anything. It's not frozen, the bar keeps moving from left to right and I can click on and off of it. I also have the logs from sfc if anyone wants to take a look at them, they'll be attached. The computer isn't very old, and has an intel i3 and 4gb of ram. If you would like any extra information to help, please reply and I'll get back to you as fast as I can Any recommendations on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, so I'm running Vista Ultimate x64 with an Intel Core 2 Quad on a Rampage Formula board blah blah blah. So at any rate, I caught a virus of some sort and it did a real number on my USB ports. As of right now, On boot none of the USB devices work until I delete INFCACHE.1, then go to device manager and delete all of the broken USB devices. Windows then reinstalls the USB drivers and everything works again . . . Except for two problems.
1) I have to do this EVERY TIME I BOOT UP.
2) It seems that If I plug a USB device into a different port than the one it was in when I deleted INFCACHE.1, it refuses to work until I go through that whole process again.
I've tried installing the fancy new Intel Chipset thing, and that did nothing. Also, Intel's built in Driver Scanner detects no problems. One last thing: when looking in the Driver details in Device Manager say they're from 2006 and distributed by Microsoft, even though they're all named 'Intel ICH9 Family'.

I might be able to upgrade to Windows 7, will that fix this problem? If not, is there any way I can?

Hello,
Over the past few weeks, my Windows files have always been getting corrupted. The hard thing is that it is an error every different time saying that some file is missing. For example, today, I did a system restore. I have done this many times and before I got to the setup screen for windows, I got a blue screen that prompted me to restart my PC and it gave me the same error after I restarted. By the way, I have Windows 8.1. Files also get corrupted on Windows 10 for me. I can't find out what the error is but I suspect it is my SSD because files get corrupted before I even install anything. One example of an error was a memory read error. The weird thing is that I had my old SSD replaced by a warranty 2 months ago and 2 weeks after I received the new one and started it, everything started to get corrupted. I have probably restored my PC 30 times this week...

Hello to all.

Some unexpected problem recently caused my windows installation to get corrupted and now I want to simply reinstall it and start anew with a fresh install. However, some important files were in the directory where windows is installed and now I'm having some difficulty in getting them out. The windows installation directory was in the local disk C: .

The problem is that I can't boot normally and in safe-mode. I tried using my windows boot cd to try and repair windows. The commands chkdsk, bootcfg /rebuild, fixmbr and fixboot all did not work. I also tried installing windows in another completely unused drive, which was D:. However, when I try to do this, it says that it is checking the hard disks and freezes when it is checking C:, after which I am left with no option but to restart.

The files are inside a folder in C: Drive, outside the WINDOWS Folder, so I was hoping if I could somehow uninstall windows only but can't figure out how to do that.

Right now, I just need a way to copy that folder in C Drive, put it in any of the other drives (D, E or F) and then reformat and reinstall. The OS is Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2.

Is there anyway I can get this done?

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Need to transfer files. Corrupted windows won't allow me to.

Hi Rydium,

Your best shot might be to make a boot CD that has its own OS self contained. Booting to one of those will allow you to copy your files if they are still readable on the drive.

A BartPE CD or a Linux live CD would do that. Google for those and you'll get plenty of instructions.

There are other ways too but they are command line driven and pretty clumsy for most folks.

There is a possibility that your files will not be visible due to media damage, file system corruption, disk errors, or missing system permissions.

You could also slave the drive in another computer and see if the files are readable.

Good luck. Post back if you have questions.

A:Windows files always corrupted even after repairs?

Hi, running the Powershell command has not been recommended since build 10586 (November) came out.. it tends to break apps. You then see @ before their names in the start menu.

To fix this, you are recommended to do an in-place upgrade repair install (you can find instructions in the Tutorials section).

This will:
- keep most of your settings
- keep your programs
- turn system restore off
- restore all Windows apps
- take up to 2 hours
- lose all Windows updates since the last major build (10586)
- create Windows.old

You need a Windows installation medium.

Noted you have a Radeon card: problems have been reported with one dll related to Nvidia cards as regards the cbs .log. You would have to inspect your log to determine what it says.. but that's irrelevant if you do the repair install.

Post back if you still have your other problem.

I have a Dell computer with a AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core Processor 2.30 GHz, Installed Memory 4.00 GB, and a 64-bit operating system.Do you have any ideas that I can fix these files, I have uploaded the sfc report for your review.Thanks for any given help.Lobo43

A:Windows 7 Corrupted System Files

You might want to have a look at this. It appears a recent Windows Update may be the culprit here, based on the files SFC couldn't repair:
utc.app.json
telemetry.ASM-WindowsDefault.json
 
http://techish.net/cannot-repair-member-file-utc-app-json-microsoft-update-kb3022345-b0rken/
You may want to just uninstall update KB3022345, and try to reinstall it later.
 
 
I'm a little more worried by the fact that cmd.exe can't be repaired.
You may have to copy this file from a computer that has the exact same OS version and the exact same hardware architecture.
More on how to do that is here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833#manually%20repair

This is my first post so be easy on me. I am 72 and have been a computer user since the Atari days. I have used all versions of Windows since then and have managed to resolve most problems. Since Windows 8 and 8.1 I spend almost as much time trying to maintain Windows as I do using the computer. I have several corrupted files and have been unable to repair them. I was going to hold out until Windows 10, hoping that it's installation would resolve all issues, but decided I'd better enter the process with a functional 8.1. The corruptions don't seem to effect my programs except for IE 11, which is such a nightmare that have limited my browsing.

Here's the situation...

1) Computer was running very slowly. I re-booted, thinking that might help.

2) Since that time, it won't boot Windows. I just see the Dell symbol on startup (it's a 1.5 year old XPS 8900 with no serious prior problems) and then it goes to a new screen and says it doesn't have a bootable drive.

3) So...I ran diagnostics (both on my own, and then a Dell tech told me to do the same things). It's supposedly not a hardware problem. Instead, Windows 10 is the issue. So I had them overnight me an installation disk (it came pre-installed, so I didn't have the CD before).

4) It's VERY important to me to save my files if possible. Some are for work, some are family photos...some are backed up, but some from the last couple months are not (I just haven't been diligent enough about that). The computer has two internal drives...1 TB main drive with Windows AND some valuable files on it...and another 2 TB drive which is a backup and where I store most of my photos (my side job is photography so I generate a ton of files every year). I would really love to recover both if possible.

5) Called Dell again tonight after I got the installation disk in the mail, and the tech unfortunately didn't really know what he was doing...after just one failed attempt to reset the computer WITHOUT losing files, he immediately wanted to give up and click the "scorched earth" (delete everything) option. I talked him out of that, and he said the other op... Read more

I have Windows 8.1 Pro and a HP Envy Notebook. I am able to boot into Windows and had no apparent problems when everything froze up yesterday while working in Quicken. After waiting several minutes with no change and and unresponsive keyboard and touchscreen, I pressed control/alt/del, and I got a (blank) BSOD. After waiting several more minutes, I pressed the button down for several seconds to turn off the notebook, removed battery, reinserted battery and then turned the the notebook back on. After rebooting into Windows, there were no apparent problems. I decided to run sfc scannow and discovered that there are several corrupted files that cannot be repaired. I ran the scan several times, rebooting each time, but the corrupted files persisted. Where do I go from here? Thank you.
BTW, in the Event Viewer there were no application errors. I did see several MCUpdate errors which began on 7/9 (today is 7/14). Again, thank you for any help. I'm not very computer literate, so I have no idea where to go from here and am hoping I do not have to do a reinstallation. I do have the HP rescue discs, however, that I burned when I got the computer, along with a thumb drive that enables me to boot up, although, again, I have no problem booting into windows.
I use Firefox, never Windows Explorer FWIW. Thanx.

I'm going to put my previous post regarding my problems with corrupted DLL files following a clean install after a major crash. This is for background purposes:
[[Just finished a clean install of Windows XP Home. Computer had black screen with error message. I made several attempts at repairing system using the original install disk. Did multiple malware and virus sweeps. Finally got it working again but it refused to update Windows Security files, constant crashes, hangs, etc. After more repair attempts and malware sweeps gave up and did clean install after backing up my files.

After spending 12 hours on the process of the clean install, installing antivirus software, browsers and security updates, the most recent Windows updates were installed as I restarted (for the 679th time today) whereupon the next bootup was preceded by the computer running CHKDSK on the blue screen. It tried to continue the boot, then went into a cycle of rebooting after the Windows loading screen (before you enter your personal account). Everytime this happened, I saw a blue screen with white type flashing by for a fourth of a second. I couldn't start in safe mode, but I managed to stop the automatic restart and here's what the message on the blue screen said:

STOP: C000007b {BAD IMAGE}
The application or DLL \??\C:\WINDOWS\System32\GDI32.dll

Hello, I currently run win 8.1 and my original disc is for win 8.0 as I upgraded via win updates to 8.1. As I was not able to start Win Defender I ran an sfc san from the prompt to see if I had any corrupted sys files. The scan showed I did have corrupt files and that I needed to put my original disc in to fix them. My problem is that my disc is for win 8,0 not 8.1. When I try to use 8,0 I get the error :this disc is not valid".
I know I can create media via windows download center for 8.1 but my download speed is so slow (via cell phone tower) that it never completes. I was just very lucky to get updates for 8.1 via win updates. I live in the Philippines, broadband is just not available here.
I ran the sfc scan and will post the results in an upload. Can you tell from this that my system is ok? If not, how can I repair the bad files without media?
I know defender will not run if another virus program is on the pc. But I uninstalled all other virus programs and it still will not run. I think maybe other virus programs invalidate some sys files when they are installed.
Thanks for any help and advice you can give me.

When I turn on the laptop and go through post boot all I see I on the screen is the cursor just blinking. No error messages. I removed the hard drive from the computer and putting on a docking station in order to open it through windows to see if the computer sees the hard drive. I see two partitions one for the operating system and one for storage. The one that has the operating system asks to be formated as soon as I turn on the docking station. I can't format it because I have programs and files that are in there that I need to use. I know there has to be a fix for this. I have tried using windows recovery environment going into cmd and using all the commands there. Maybe there is something I missed. Can anyone help me...? Thank you in advance.

About half a year ago, give or take, I ordered a Windows 8 OEM disk to install on my laptop. Machine runs fine, even upgrading to the 8.1 Preview and eventually to 8.1, and dual-booting Ubuntu GNOME. Life is good.

The most recent system update, however, continuously fails for some reason, giving me no error messages.
I've tried running sfc /scannow and DISM commands, but both of those fail, saying that there are corrupted system files preventing them from working.

The normal way to fix corrupted system files with Windows 8 would be to Refresh. However, I can't refresh with my install disk because it's not an 8.1 disk. I've tried using the trick with creating a useable ISO file, but that trick fails because the Product Key I'm using is a developer's license, not retail.

Any more ideas without starting from scratch? Thanks in advance.

hi Gang,

I don't know how it happened, I probably got overly ambitious with a disk cleanup utility and now several functions of windows 7 don't work. New updates don't install, other updates that I DID install are missing, I am unable to run certain games, and I can't run SFC /scannow.

However virus scan updates appear to be fine.

What is the best way to fix this? I have an old backup I did with Norton Ghost on disk but something is wrong with the second disk so I can't use to to reinstall the entire backup but I might be able to extract some old files if I knew which ones to extract.

I am running Window Seven Home Premium. It is a legal copy. I got it directly from Microsoft.

If I try to run SFC /scannow from Windows I cannot get it to show up or do anything. Its like I never did anything. If I try to run SFC /scannow from the boot CD using this command
sfc /scannow /offbootdir=f:\ /offwindir=f:\windows

I get this error messge:

Windows Resource Protection Could not run the repair service
