Preferred Solution: Recover file after it's been deleted

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a user that accidentally deleted a shared file from her local machine and she wants to recover it. The file is stored in a shared directory on a server 2003 machine. The file does not show up in her recycle bin (which I assumed it would). And I can't find a 'recycled' folder on the server or anything either. For good measure I ran a small recoveyr program on the server but didn't find it still. Any idea where it could have gone?

Also, in case anyone asks we do have a backup of it, but it won't do any good because it won't have any of the updated information she needs.
 

Answer:Recover deleted file

if you have the file shared out it should still be on the server. she could just go back to the server and copy the file over again. if its not on the server and she deleted the only other copy of the file, you might be SOL unless you want to take the time to bring the hard drive to a third party recovery place...

Hi,

I've done a stupid stupid stupid thing and lost an important excel spreadsheet that I last used about two weeks ago. I've been having various performance problems (freezes/crashes) and was advised to run "Malwarebytes' anti-malware".

Before I did this, I backed up all my data to a CD-ROM and then deleted the files from my laptop. Then I went ahead and ran the software. The good news: my laptop seems to be behaving itself far better now. The bad news: somehow I seem to have missed this one file when backing up. I've got all my family photos, lots of stuff from work, even old stuff that I'll probably never need again but I thought "What the heck". Yet somehow, I've missed this one spreadsheet. I could kick myself!!

To make matters (probably) worse, I've run CCleaner a couple of times since then, as I was advised that it keeps the laptop clean. I've just looked at some settings there now and it's using "Normal" file deletion as opposed to "Secure", but "Wipe Free Space" is selected. Damn!

I only realised I'd lost the file last night and I have already downloaded some freeware utilities such as "Restoration" and "Undelete Plus", but none of these found the file.

Should I just give up now? Or is there some software that may find a file even after CCleaner has been run.

Grateful for any help.

Pat

I have inadvertantly deleted a personal file (containing data and pictures files) from my laptop.I tried to use recovery programs to recover at least the pictures. I have recovered some of the files containing the pictures, but cannot open these pictures . When trying to open each picture (of the recovered ones) I've got the following note:"Paint cannot read this file. This is not a valid bitmap file, ot its format is not currently supported"I checked the System Restore and found that a restore point is available to the date prior the delete.Can System Restore recover the deleted file?Note: The file was installed on the Desktop (before being deleted).I am using Windows XP ProThanks for your assitance.

Answer:Recover A Deleted File

The restore point may work for you, or it may not. Persoanlly, that's a tough call, because you risk erasing the deleted version where you can't retrieve it, and you risk the possibility that the restore point won't work, and at the same time, erased any possible chance of you recovering what was accidentally deleted.If possible, the best way you is to hook the hard drive in question to another computer as the slave. And then use the other computer to get the data off, because you stand the risk of that sector of the hard drive to be over-written with data if you add/install a program to the computer. It's not always true.. but that risk still exists.If you don't have access to another computer then you'll want to use a few FREE ones that are out there. Look in the Commercial FREEWare forum here on this site. Sorry, I forget the link right off hand.But whatever you do, don't keep deleting and (or) modifying the hard drive if you want your data back. By all means, just download what you need, and do as less installing/deleting on that computer as possible.And then again, if you feel that the Restore Point will bring back the data, then all I can say is go for it. But remember to weigh out your odds, no matter which route you take.a. connect the hard drive to another computer, and do it that way (safest known method)b. install a program(s) on the computer in question, and run it from there (risk/a workable method)c. Use the Windows Restore Point (ris... Read more

Answer:Cannot recover deleted pst file

Johnw its a local copy of .pst or there would be no need for recovery software.Flox15 you should never install software when trying to recover a file. You run the recovery software from a usb or cd boot disk. This prevents the file from being partially or fully overwritten.Another aspect is how much free space do you have? If not much then a deleted file can be overwritten immediately.There is also the issue of a corrupt file table. You run chkdsk /f to correct this.But all of this sounds too late in your situation.Answers are only as good as the information you provide.How to properly post a question: Sorry no tech support via PM's

I am using Windows 8.1 and wanting to get advice on a utility (either freeware or paid-for version-or even if one exists at all) which has the ability to restore files/folders once they have been deleted from the recycle bin.
I realise that there are oodles of utilities on the web which claim they can restore deleted files, and I have tested a few out; I now am having serious doubts that a restoration tool exists at all.
With every tool I tried out, it asks where the file?s original location was, then after initiating a search some files are found; here?s where things get interesting ? every file which is found already exists on the H/D and hasn?t even been deleted at all.
Is a undeleting tool simply media hype?
Has anyone used a ?undelete? utility which successfully does what it?s meant to?

Answer:Deleted registry file, anyway to recover?

I can offer you this: I found the key in my registry. What you do is copy the text below, and paste it into Notepad. Save the file as a text file (.txt). The file name is not important, just call it what you want (i.e. document.txt). Probably save to the desktop for easy access. After it is saved, rename the .txt extention to .reg . Double click on it and it will enter the info into your registry. Reboot.

A few days ago I think I deleted a folder (entitled "Scans") in "My Documents" folder. I tried "Recuva" and used all the different options to search (except, advanced). When files come up in the search, they are listed in numbers, like, 1a55t2r277z12, etc. rather than a name, like "Scans," the one I am looking for. Am I going about the search correctly,and if so, how do I idenfiy the folder I am looking for?

Anyone know of any sly ways to try to recover this?

Thanks alot!
 

Answer:Solved: Recover Deleted File

Firstly do NOT use the PC for anything. Every operation will overwrite the HDD locations of deleted files.

If it did not go into the recycle bin, then a deliberate effort was made to delete it in a manner to make it difficult to recover. Using the PC makes that even more difficult.

Ideally slave the hard drive in another PC, you should never attempt to recover a file on the same drive as it was deleted on (as the recovery software and file extraction will possibly overwrite the deleted file)

Then try PC Inspector from here:

Answer:Recover deleted file from memory stick

If you have already recovered it, meaning that a file name now shows if you view the contents of the stick, you may be out of luck.

Any recovery programs are attempting to recover files that are still deleted. (and re-deleting the recovered one is not going to work either).

Answer:URGENT HELP - Need to recover a file deleted from the recycle bin!!!

Hi Luke!

There are tools you can use to restore deleted files, but there's no guaranty that you'll be successful. To maximize your chances, stop using the computer. While you're using it, things are being written to the disk all the time and so a deleted piece of data can be overwritten.

Your best bet is to go to another computer, download one of the "recovery" tools and put it on a memory stick or a cd. Then run it on the PC with the deleted file from the cd.

An example of a freeware recovery program is "restoration".

Can a deleted file be recovered from an image/clone hard disk?
 

Answer:recover deleted file from image disk?

Welcome to the Board see7102!

Not sure I quite follow your question. You deleted a file from your hard drive, but had previously cloned the drive to another drive? If so, and the file existed when the clone was done then the file is still on the other drive (unless it was deleted there as well).

Or, did you make an image of the drive and saved the image file someplace? If you made an image, then you may be able to access the file from the image with out having to restore the image. For example Norton Ghost has Ghost Explorer, which will let you pull one file out of an image file. Other imaging programs likely have something similar, but I'm only familiar with Ghost 2003

What software was used to make the image?

Hello, I need help with recovering a file. When I signed into my Onedrive account, Windows Defender caught a virus. Therefore I quarantined it and deleted it. As I have a current investigation going about a few of my accounts (including Onedrive) being hacked, and being close to being able to prove who did this, I now realize that I should not have deleted the virus, as this is evidence that this hacker is also trying to access my other devices through a virus placed in my Onedrive account. Is there a way that I can determine what the name of this virus was, or to be able to find it again? AVG detected it instantly as well, but I ignored it in AVG and deleted it from Windows Defender. I do not see it anywhere in AVG or in Windows Defender anymore, and it is also not present in the event viewer under Windows Defender. Any help on this topic is appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:Please help! Recover deleted file from Windows Defender possible?

Comment from the Web 4 years ago.
Windows Defender — where are the Scan Results?
 
Obviously, you are able to see when it last ran by opening Windows Defender and looking at the last scan details on the bottom left. If it detected something, it would alert you and also log it in the 'History' section.
If you want to see more detailed logs, you can view them in Event Viewer > Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Windows Defender > Operational
It will show as 'information' for when it has ran, etc. If it has detected malware, etc. it will show as 'Warning' with a yellow warning sign and details of process, severity, etc. If it's stopped before completion it will also show under a yellow warning sign.

I don't know if this is the right section, but here goes:
1) plug your flash drive into your computer
2) 'Open' your Recycle bin by right-clicking on it, and selecting 'Open'
3) click on the file you want to recover (to select it), then right-click on the file, and select 'Restore'

This should restore the file that you want.

If we can, how do we recover these deleted files. I have checked with trash can on both systems and deleted files and folders are not there.

I looked up in the Microsoft file recovery tutorial and it specifically says that files deleted through a network connection are not recoverable. These files and folders must be sitting in some cache. Where are they and how can I get to them.

Your help is welcomed, apprecaited and needed.

Hello there. I really need your help. I have accidentally deleted a very important .txt file that was really small, only around 10 bytes and contained only a randomly generated password of around 10 characters. It was on my desktop and was named New Text Document.txt by default. I have deleted it with two other files I did not need, and I did not see that this was also marked before deleting. I have tried multiple recovery programs (recuva included) and used deep scan but had no luck and these programs did not even show anything close to the file I needed (no such name, no such size or date).So is it possible that the file has changed its name after deleting or something? Is there any other way to try to recover the file? It is really important to me and I desperately need to get it back. I have also entered it to my browser multiple times, just did not save it, maybe there is some way of retrieving it from there? Thanks a ton!!

Answer:Is there a way to recover a small .txt file that was permanently deleted (shift-del)?

If it is for a website, can you not just do a password recovery from it?

Answer:what are the options to recover deleted sheets within an excel file? n

Have you tried Recuva? They are many programs of this type but I trust Piriform (makers of Ccleaner). Whatever program you choose, do it fast! The longer you wait the more chance you have of overwriting the lost data so time is of the essence here. Use your machine as sparingly as possible until you try any recovery software. Of course, the simple fact of downloading any of the programs has the risk of overwriting your lost data.

I had a user account on my computer that was corrupted (source unknown), and decided the simplest thing was to create a new one and port all of the files over.
Having done so and checked that it was functional, I deleted the old account. However, at least one of my old pst files didn't make the trip. (So much for the idea that ALL files came over!) Is there any way a recovering the old pst file, i.e., is it still out there with the pointers erased, or has it been forever wiped out and I'm left to live without the old emails, etc.?

Answer:recover pst file if deleted from c:-user-local settings

Hi Leema. It's always a good idea to keep a backup copy of any current PST file as well as any other important user files & documents etc.You might be able to retrieve it with recovery software, but even then there's a possibility that it may be incomplete or damaged by overwriting if you carried on using the PC after the file was deleted.

Answer:Recover file or folder permanently deleted from work server

Since they were on the server, especially if they were on the server overnight, there has to be a back up of the drive/folder. As mentioned, see your system administrator and have them access the last back up before you or someone deleted the file or folder in order to identify it so they can restore it for you. This does not need any software that is not already part of their back up solution. It might embarrass you to admit that you deleted an important document but that is better than not having the important document(s) or having to do extensive work over again (if possible).You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Pls help !!! I have HP's dv5 laptop (Windows Vista 64 bit) and I accidently deleted the "Recovery Folder/File" from D and also from the Recycle bin to gain more storage space.
The disk space still shows high, even after deletion. I had made recovery disks when I first started using this new laptop.
I learnt lately (after deletion) that the ‘Recovery File/Folder’ should not be deleted from D drive. As such my machine is perfectly all right.
My concern is now that should I use the Recovery Discs to restore the system? If I do that, will it take the system to Factory settings? What if I don’t restore the deleted file? The Drive D is visible when I open the drives from “Computer” but I don’t see the D Drive from “HP Care”. I have few other files stored in D Drive but the disk free space is still very low. I could see once more file Program (x86) in Drive D. Also when I tried to perform Disk Clean-up for the D Drive, it was unsuccessful, notifying that the drive is in operation. After deletion of the "Recovery Folder/File", I have made several updates from Windows & HP updates.
What shall I do now – Pls advise. Many Thanks !!!

Windows XP w/SP2. I do not use Outlook Express. My e-mail is through my ISP, wmconnect.

PROBLEM: 2 or 3 weeks ago I got a reply to a problem from Nero. It was fairly simple and solved the problem. Then I had to re-install Windows XP and the problem returned, but I had lost the e-mail. And stupid me did not write down the steps that solved the problem. Another e-mail to Nero was answered by a different person who complicated the situation; sent a file I can't open, etc., etc., etc. Apparently Nero is in Germany and English may not be clear to him (her?). Back and forth e-mails have not helped.

Now, I wonder if it is possible to restore that deleted e-mail. Wmconnect, my ISP, says it is impossible, but we constantly hear of investigations involving e-mails recovered from months and even years before, so there must be some way to do it. Does anyone know?

Thanks,
Dick
 

Answer:Recover deleted e-mail?

As you probably know, wmconnect is AOL related. Their emails are on their servers. So if you deleted it, then it cannot be recovered.

A possible solution.
Chances are not too good if the solution is something unique only to wmconnect or AOL. But you could post the exact problem here and maybe someone will have an answer.

Hi Guys,

I have two HDs, 80 Gig primary and 120 gig secondary. I had win xp installed and running off the 80 gig and I backed up all my files onto the 120 gig. I then decided to format the 80 gig drive

I used a win 98 boot disk and formatted the 80 gig hd. then I started the win xp cd and it asked which partition I would like to choose. I chose the partitioned 120 gig drive not realizing what I had done. I confirmed the partition removal and then realized what I did. So I start flipping out and I restart my comp

I looked for my files and 120 gig drive but it was gone. I'm really going crazy. So I researched a little and I have two utilities on disk (mbrwork and testdisk) I started to run mbrwork and it has been searching for recoverable partitions for the past 2 hours. I don't know what to do and I really need the files on the 120 gig HD. I didn't install windows and I haven't done anything other than run the utility. Can someone please help me. I don't know what I'll do if I can't get my files back.

Thanks

Answer:recover deleted partition please HELP!

Rob, There are utilities that can rebuild a File Allocation Table. I have never used one but I understand that they work by installing the hosed drive as a slave to another bootable drive and running the software from the boot drive to fix the slave.

I can't tell you any names but a Google search should get you plenty of hits.

Good luck. There is hope.

System Restore- The history was deleted between restore points, and the restore points on either side of it being deleted dont have the relevant history

What I've tried:

Index.dat readers. This is what I'm confused about, everywhere I go say this file holds all IE history unless its been altered, but from everything I've actually tried it seems all the index files I can find just hold information I can pretty readily access already.

Answer:Recover deleted mails

Sorry, you're out of luck

Didn't the "incredimail software" have warnings before you deleted your emails? If it did NOT, uninstall that software, it's unsafe.

You do not state what email client you use, unless it IS "incredimail." If it is Outlook 2002 or 2003, download and use the Microsoft Outlook PST Backup Utility.

It will add Backup to Outlook's File menu.

The backup will run after closing Outlook (you cannot backup PSTs while in-use).

The backup interface allows you to set a backup filename (if you don't want default), and location (path). For path I highly suggest you not use defaults, put your PST backups in a separate location like My Documents, or (better) on another HD. WARNING - you must specify filenames (optional) and paths for each PST, you should have an Outlook.pst & Archive.pst if you do archive your emails.

The backup interface also allows you to schedule when to backup, and the dialog will open on Outlook exit, on schedule. At work I set every 3-days.

At home I do not use MS Office but since I image my D:\APPS05 drive (includes my email client) every month, I can recover from that.

Answer:Recover deleted OE folder?

Just for your info, the file "folders.dbx" in the user's "Store Folder" maps the actual folders visible in Outlook Express to the DBX files that hold the messages for each of those folders.  Folders.dbx is automatically regenerated by OE if it is deleted, which is sometimes used as a fix for a corrupt folders.dbx file.Each of the DBX database files represents a separate folder or sub-folder and contains all the messages in that folder.DBX Files can be opened using OE-Mail Recovery utility http://www.oemailrecovery.com/outlook-express-recovery.htmlIt is a standalone program that opens the DBX file in a rough approximation of the OE message view and allows you to open emails, save attachments, and save out as many messages as you want to the *.eml format used by OE.  You can drag and drop *.eml files from a folder into a newly created folder in OE again and they are then embedded into the DBX file created for your new folder.You should be aware that the "Deleted Items.dbx" file normally still retains all deleted messages UNTIL it is "compacted". OE is set to prompt the user to compact database folders on the 100th time it is closed.  The folder that was deleted from within OE may still be inside "Deleted Items.dbx", but probably only viewable as separate messages rather than as a separate folder containing messages, so your best bet is the DBX file you backed up.Please also be aware that copying a DBX fi...

Hi All,
I accidentally lost all the pictures from my desktop and I am unable to recover them. This is what happened;
1. Created a folder under C: and gave it a name
2. I cut photos from the SD card and pasted them in to this new folder
3. Disconnected the SD card and removed it from the slot
4. I was then in the process of copying a movie file from the harddisk to a pen drive and that was when my 1 year old (whom I was carrying while doing the copy) banged on the laptop keyboard
5. The movie file got deleted from the folder and I couldn't find it in recycle bin too
6. Then I started doing "REDO" until I got the movie file back
7. Only to realize that the photos I previously copied were not there anymore in the new folder I created and the folder's name had changed back to "New Folder" (Basically the Folder name and the copy of the photos operation was undone :( )
I have tried a few recovery softwares both on the SD card and harddisk but no luck :( I lost around 200 photos and invaluable memories of a family trip

Can anyone help me with the best way to recover deleted files...

I have just discovered that all my photos have dis appearred! and of course i haven't backed them all up!

The only thing I have done is deleted old user accounts. I checked the box to save all files. Not sure if my flatmate's daughter has deleted them by accident and not told me.
I am running window XP SP3.
I have done a restore point but it will only let me go back 3 days.
I have just tried FreeUndelete2.0 but it doesn't find them either?

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time

I accidentely deleted my picture,help me to get that photo back on my windows phone itself

Answer:How do I recover my deleted picture?

If you have the backup option set, then it'll be on your OneDrive. If you didn't have the backup on, then it's gone I'm afraid.

Do you have System Restore on? If so, the Previous Versions tab on a folder or file can restore old versions.

I have deleted some of my important files by mistake. It is not there in recycle bin as it was cleared by my friend . What I do now? Is there any way to recover it?

Answer:How to recover deleted files?

Hi, first thing is as soon as the files are deleted from the recycle bin their disk space is available to be overwritten. Therefore they may be recoverable, corrupted or unrecoverable.

You can try a program such as Recuva (free)- there are many.
Do not install it on the drive or partition from which you are trying to recover files.

Such programs usually offer two levels of scanning- deep scanning is slow, so specify what to scan carefully.

Obvious lesson: back up.

There are many backup programs at a file level, and then there's the strongly recommended approach of disk imaging.

Disk imaging even allows you to restore Windows if it is unbootable as it was when the image was created- and also to a new hard disk. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage.

Images also act as a full backup- you can extract files too.

I accidentally deleted my portable hard drive volume when messing around with Disk Management on Windows 7. The hard drive is formatted using FAT32 and is about 120GB. Is there any way to recover it? I have all media and some important documents in there. Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:Help recover deleted volume

Hi,

You can use the undelete option in a 3rd party partition manager. As long as you haven't attempted to change that partition in any way other than delete it, should work fine.

If you have a partition Manager - see if it has that option. Post back and let me know.

My computer became infected with a virus, infostealer.banpaes that norton 2006 seemed unable to get rid of.

I decided to simply reinstall XP pro, onto my 10gb C partition, while maintaining my files on the other two 50gb partitions (drive is 120gb sata). I'd done this countless times before just to clean out the system from time to time and didn't think too much of it.

When I booted up into XP installer and got to the point where i would need to delete the C partition and reformat it, I didn't notice until too late that somehow my 3 separate partitions now looked like one 120gb partition to the windows installer (something that had never happend before).

Before it fully dawned on me, I deleted my C partition, effectively deleting the entire drive.

Not sure what to do, I made another 10gb partition, installed XP pro, and now am wondering how I can recover the files from my lost 50gb partitions.

Is this possible without having to employ some expensive recovery software or recovery service?

The files lost are not earth shatteringly essential, but quite a few of them are ones I will truly miss.

Any ideas on anything I can do? Or should I just let go and move on?

Thanks

i deleted an ISO image using SHIFT+DELETE, which means permanently. however i need that ISO image back so is there any good software out there that can retrieve what i want?
 

Answer:deleted data, need to recover it?

It doesn't mean permanently, it just means it doesn't go to the Recycle Bin. Anything can be recovered using Advanced Data Recovery software and other in depth techniques however Data Recovery is not cheap if you have someone do it for you.

Hello,
I realise this problem would be similar regardless of which Windows being used.
I partitioned my HD and moved documents to new partition. Mistakenly removed the partition without restoring files.
Is there any way of recovering the lost files?
Thank You

Answer:recover deleted files

There are some good recovery apps on the market, but I would start with Recuva. It's free and generally does a good job. I use the portable version, but be sure to run it from a drive other than the one you want to recover files from.

Oye. Where to start. I had a problem on my comptuer, so I had to reinstall XP. All is well. I have "roaming profiles" set up on a "server" [really is just my profile on a XP Pro machine w/ a big hard drive]. They are on their own partition. I set my new install machine profile point to the place where it should be. I wanted to use it right away and not wait for it to copy the 12gb of My Documents to my computer at the moment, so I moved them to a different folder. I logged on, and did what I wanted to do. Then I moved My Documents back to the profile folder on the server. Logged off of my computer and logged back on. My Documents is GONE! Apparently, since when I logged on there wasn't a My Documents, and when I logged off, it was there, Windows thought it would get rid of it...and it did. I tried several data recovery programs, and only one was able to recover some of my files, but about 90% of them are useless. A document is just a bunch of ??Ya94~9??A ect ect. Pictures are unreadable, music is corrupt. I'm very organized, and have everything set up into folders and sub-folders upon sub-folders ect. I'd like to not have to find out where everything goes, but if all else fails, I guess I could. Its about 12gb, and if there is any way of getting it back, I'd GREATLY appreciate it. I called a guy who does this for a living, $500 flat rate, and if successsful $100/gb. It's not worth that much, but it has a LOT of value ... Read more

Hi all,

I was doing an assignment using Word for Mac 2011, and without realising it deleted a section of text. I continued to work on it all evening, so had made multiple saves, before I realised the content was missing. I had mixed answers from googling, but no joy so far, so not sure if anything can be done. Does anyone one know if I have any hope of recovering it, or a previous version of the file?
Also time machine was not on....

Thanks
