Help!! How do I recover deleted files no longer in the recycle bin?!?!?!

Post by JNald » Thu, 22 May 2003 04:46:17



Anyone out there, please help!! I accidentally deleted
folder of family pictures accumulated over time. They are
no longer at the recycle bin because I was
pressing "Shift" when I deleted them! I was trying to
delete another file and when I moved my mouse, it selected
six folders containing  precsious family pics. When it
prompted me to confirm, I clicked "yes" thinking I was
deleting the single file I wanted delete. To my horror,
all our family pictures of vacations were deleted and I
don't even have back-ups of them!

Please help! There could be some way of getting them from
the harddisk.

Always check the Recycle Bin first.
If the file is there, right click the file then click Restore.

It is important not to do anything with the computer until a decision
is made.
Every boot and even every keystroke potentially permanently destroys
the data.

Some 3rd party tools such as Norton System Works have utilities like
"Norton Protected Recycle Bin"
Check you documentation if you think you may have this capability.

You want PC Inspector File Recovery from download.com. It
will find any lost files not overwritten & is free. If
they no longer have it, I will email it to you if you
want.

1. RE; Recovering deleted files that were deleted from recycle bin

Ron,

As noted previously in this newsgroup there are numerous third-party file
recovery tools available.

One option is "FileRestore" from Winternals Software--

  www.winternals.com/products/repairandrecovery/filerestore.asp

This $39 utility recovers files deleted from any Windows XP/2000/NT/Me/9x
system regardless of whether emptied from the Recycle Bin, deleted via a
command prompt or with a removed directory, by a remote process or
uninstall, etc. It's designed to be effective regardless of whether
installed before or after an accidental deletion.

FileRestore works on NTFS, FAT, and FAT32 drives. It recovers files
(including compressed files) deleted from hard drives- plus floppy disks,
Jaz, Zip, and even CompactFlash photo cards.

Please note:

Regardless of which recovery program is used, it is recommended that you--

To the extent possible stop all disk activity on your system without
shutting the system down. Turn off any scheduled defragmentation and do not
defrag your system until lost files are recovered. Close all applications
including email and Web browsing software and, if removable media such as a
floppy disk drive is available on your system, disconnect your system from
the network as soon as is practical. This will reduce the possibility that
deleted files will be overwritten.

If installing FileRestore, we recommend that you download and install it on
a second system and follow the "Emergency Installation" procedure in the
Help file. This procedure will allow you to run FileRestore from a floppy
disk or network drive to help maximize the chances of recovery.

Hope this helps.
