File Recovery Help

By NohablaPC ·
I got tired of removing trojans and viruses on a weekly basis on my brother's PC so I did a non destructive system recovery on it recently--F10.
He assured me that he needed nothing from the HP Pavillion A230n. Now that the PC is working just fine "back to the original state" he tells me that we lost all of his picture files which were-- guess where?? in his Documents folder. Well I tried Recoverymyfiles...and it only found a handful! Any ideas?

Another small note the audio device is not working...I'll just need to find a driver for that problem.
Thanks for your response.

Here is some free software worth trying

by stress junkie In reply to File Recovery Help

I used this on an intact NTFS file partition and on a partition which had held a Linux ext2 partition. I had overwritten the ext2 partition several times with random data.

This software discovered a lot of deleted files on the NTFS partition.

Happily, this software did not find any files on the ext2 partition that had been overwritten several times with random data.

This software has two utilities. One is for finding deleted files. The other is for recovering partitions when the disk partition table has been damaged.

AND IT'S FREE!!!

Recover lost files

by JackAlexander In reply to File Recovery Help

There is a way to get lost files back. When we deleted the files in the Recycling Bin or command "Shift +Delete" or even Formatting, it seems like they are gone forever and most people think they are deleted permanently. The fact is that the pointers or index in the disk just make a special tick on these deleted items, marked them as available to be rewritten. With more and more files saving on the disk the available space is shrinking. Then until one day it's full but still you have some important files to save, under this circumstance the special area with special marks will come to use. New data will overwrite the deleted data. Then the deleted are erased permanently.

So the moment you find your files lost you have to stop saving any new files to the disk before you want to get your deleted items back. Then rely on some data recovery programs, one of perfect ones is Wondershare Data Recovery. Only 3 steps to recover your lost data.

Here is the link of this free download program, http://www.disk-utilities.com/data-recovery/index.html

May this help you!
