UNdelete

By Daz'n'Ash ·
I inadvertently deleted a folder from my storage drive that had important things in it. I have emptied the recycle bin before I realised this. Is there a way I can get it back?

there are a number of good software packages that can recover your documents, you can try norton utilities, however one i like particularly is EasyRecovery professional edition. i've used easyrecovery to fully restore FORMATTED hard drives before, and i'm sure it can find your lost folder

Nice try, but this program was not nearly effective enough for me. Thanks anyway.

Active@ UNERASER is a powerful hard drive recovery software for DOS and Windows (Console) that can recover deleted files and folders on FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS systems. It can even restore files from deleted and reformatted partitions.

With this data recovery software NTFS drives can be recognized and deleted items can be recovered while working from DOS and Windows (Console) environment. It is not necessary to install the utility on your system's hard drive, as it fits on a boot floppy disk, removing the possibility of overwriting data which you want to recover

thanks dmiles. This program worked very effectively. Not only did I manage to restore the lost data, nothing was lost. You have earned these points.

If this is very valuable data and it sounds like it is, the best is Ontrack. You didn't mention software or whether it was fat32 or ntfs, but check out:

If you feel uncomfortable doing it yourself, this is the place the pros send their hard drives.

Don't fool around with data!

dmiles, thanks for the tip. This program you mentioned seems to work. I shall put it to work later and if it proves successful, I will be sure to let you know.

When all else fails - Go back to the old school and use Hexedit or Debug, if you do not know what you are doing stay away from these ! They are very powerfull tools and if you are unsure of how to use them, do not !

Right now you could create a 160 G, 3.5 floppy with these (no data) but it would appear as a 160 G floppy !
