Recovery of deleted files

By volak_sao ·
A staff at my company has left the job and deleted all important working files from her PC. My boss has heard that there must be a way to recover these lost files even though they are emptied from the Recycle Bin and he needs the files back badly but no IT specialists at my location could help. We are using WIN NT server and workstations. Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Answer to previous question contains hyperlink (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q213/9/ 04.asp)which turns to be an invalid link. It doesn't help anyway.

Recovery of deleted files

FIRST STEP: DON'T USE THE DRIVE FOR ANYTHING ELSE RIGHT NOW. Doing so can over write the data you want to recover.

There are many services available that can perfectly recover all of you data as long as the employee didn't use a shredder type program.

Or you might try to do it youself. Here's a program which can read all the deleted files on your drive. And it's not expensive.

If you do this then install the software on any other computer.Install the hard drive as a second harddrive. This makes sure that no writing will take place on the drive to be recovered. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT! DON'T BOOT FROM OR INSTALL ANY NEW SOFTWARE ON THE DRIVE OR YOU WILL LOOSE SOME OF THE FILES!

Good Luck,
Al Franco, II

If you need some help through the process drop me a line at apf2@apf2.com. I done this a couple of times.
