This is really a horrible case caz loosing 4GB of data is not a joke. I guess you need help from recovery labs. You can search this forum to fins some other DIY data recover program or lab. I'm not aware of any free DR program, which is worth to consider. Most of them are not that expensive to start with and based on the try before you buy concept. But I recently came across a Lab called SAlvageData Recovery Lab Inc. I would suggest to give them a shot?If you wish you can call them at 1 203-973-0242. I hope you get ur crucial data back.
My brother recently deleted one of my folders (accidentally) containing about 4Gb worth of stuff. About 3 quarters of it is from sites that have closed down and some from a mail-list that doesn't keep archives of files they send.
What I need is a program to recover the lost files WITH the directory/file-structure intact.
I found one program called 'ADRC_Data_Recovery_Tools_v1.0' which says it does just that, I put it on C:\ (the deleted stuff is on E:\) and it has found 10,000+ deleted files on C:\ but when I ask it to check E:\, it just finishes the search instantly and there are no results (no error message either).
Now, I also found a program called 'Restoration V3.2.13' which has found over 140,000(!) deleted files on E:\ but it can only recover individual files, not the folder/directory structure as well.
Anyway, any help would be appreciated, otherwise could someone point me to either a free program that can recover deleted files & folders with the directory/folder structure intact, or a forum that deals with deleted files and the like.
* I've just used 'Turbo File Uneraser' to do a simple scan only and it comes up with : "ERROR: Couldnot read MFT Record 912571"
** P.S. I've got like a day and a half to fix this so a prompt reply would be greatly appreciated.
** And if someone does know either how I can get the stuff back or another free program I could use could you either PM me or email me at 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
Thanks in advance,
