I am left with many questions here. For instance did you stop using that HDD after you found the files missing? And did you never use that drive after recovery in case you need to try again?
Nod to Drivesavers this time round.
In parting, why no backups? PCs are not safe enough to go without.
I recently paid for someone to recover my files I lost in my computer. MY files include word perfect, and word documents. He saved them on a flash drive, and now every time I plug in the drive the files will not open. If they do open they will be in some sort of wingdings. I tried to email the docs to myself to open, saved it to a CD to see if it will open in another computer. I of course tried opening them in word perfect, and word. I really need these documents, can someone please help.
