    Re: New Guy Needs Help!!

    Thanks CMB!

    So this is a fully functional recover program, no need to purchase a KEY or anything?

    Re: New Guy Needs Help!!

    I used it a year or 2 back, if I remember.
    It was fully functional, so I guess it still is.

    Well I don't actually have it on my machine at the moment.....I am sure it is fairly intuitive and there is a help menu at the top to guide you.

    Re: New Guy Needs Help!!

    What kind of files were you looking to recover ?
    This will not recover your working setup, just get any important data files that you need...doc files,picture files etc.
    I guess we'll wait till it's done.

    OK, it may recover multiple instances of files, since they may have been written and rewritten numerous times, and may also have been temp files also, so after it's done you''ll have to check which ones are valid and not corrupt and which are the latest.I think it recovers the file dates so that should be a help when you are looking through them..

    Re: New Guy Needs Help!!

    ok, well this program is finding stuff, just don't know what to do with it when i find it. If it's finding stuff, that means that there is still things on this drive, correct?

    Re: New Guy Needs Help!!

    Yes. you will have to look through all it finds, especially the extensions you need denoting your data files ie .jpg for pictures,.doc for documents, .xls for excel, .mdb for access it might find e-mails... .pst etc etc.not sure about e-mails though.
    It isn't changing your old hard drive at all, the recovered files are on your new drive, so if there are any must have files on the old one that you don't get you could try another recovery program or service that might get them, though you'll no doubt have to pay for it.
    If you get enough from it, then you could go back to trying to reinstall windows and resurrect the old drive , knowing that it won't matter too much if you don't succeed.
