Orphaned or corrupt files

By john.powers3 ·
When booting up a workstation with Windows 2000 Professional, a display window appeared and started to scan the hard drive and deleted ophaned or corrupted files. once the system came up I checked the second hard drive on the computer and found that all data had been deleted. Is there a way to get the data back?

If the data from the second hard disk is missing maybe the problem is another thing.
Virus maybe does that stuff. But if the Scandisk deleted corrupted data is more difficult to recover that kind of data.
But to recover hard disk failed and/or deleted or maybe corrupted data the, best software is from OnTrack(Ontrack Easy Recovery Professional) and as a good support on recovering data.
Try to use this software.

Just run the software in the hard disk and select the data that you want to recover.
My experience with this software is that in 80/90% data recover. Very good average

Any help just ask

Best Regards.
