Preferred Solution: How do I recover my deleted files after upgrading to Windows 10?

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.)

Answer: How do I recover my deleted files after upgrading to Windows 10?

No. Rollback doesn't affect personal files. In fact to do a rollback would make chances of recovering files worse as you would be writing more to the disk.

If you don't have backup and can't recover them they are lost unfortunately.

So, my problem started earlier this week when I tried to scan my Hard Drive using my antivirus system. Never do that.
My Vaoi laptop froze at 27% during the scan, and I had to manually shut it off (hold down the power button) and then restart it. Well, it started the scan again, and got stuck again, so I had to restart it again. The next time, I was able to read this millisecond long message about how to "cancel dskchk by pressing any key", so I did, but then it just took forever to load and opened on an error message saying that windows couldn't load, or something along those lines.

Eventually, after figuring out how to open safe mode, I tried to use a Restore point (which didn't work), Refresh the System (which couldn't complete), do a lot of maintenance scans (none of which helped), consult the internet off of my friend's computer (where I heard about the windows.old folder), and then I was finally forced to use the Vaio Recovery Tool and do an emergency backup onto my new External Hard Drive... It semi-worked, but a lot of my files weren't passed over to the external drive, and I'd like to get them back.

Thanks for the alert about the dup. thread. I closed it.

When you don't have a backup I don't know what can be done except for trying recovery software, as you have, or if the data has suddenly become very important there are companies who can, at least sometimes, succeed where free software fails.

I was running Windows 8.1 Preview, and I decided to just upgrade to the full 8.1 the other day. I thought it was a supplemental upgrade - but after it completed, I noticed I had lost nearly everything. My 'My Pictures' folder was wiped clean (thousands of pictures were in there), I lost all of my software applications, and countless 'My Documents' files, etc, etc, etc.

Did the upgrade to 8.1 somehow format my HDD or something? I cant' find a system restore anywhere.

Is it possible to revert back to the way my PC was just yesterday?

I didn't back anything up. When I upgraded to Win 8.1 preview from Win 8 I never lost anything like this.

Please, please, help

Answer:Please help - possible to recover all missing files since upgrading to Windows 8.1? (Emergency)

Well clearly someone didn't read the news about the upgrade process before doing so.

Microsoft goes public with Windows 8.1 upgrade policies | ZDNet

Posted June 5, 213 about the upgrade policies saying that everything would have to be reinstalled as a Preview Build is not a supported build. If you don't choose the right options, all files would be lost!

No there is no way to use a restore point and get everything back.

Update from Windows 8.1 Preview to Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Windows Help

Even Microsoft warns of such things. So you better hope that some recovery software like Recuva can get your files back and BACKUP! Plus READ IN ADVANCE. You were running an unsupported OS as your primary OS, which is already against the suggestions. They say not to run the Preview on a production machine. They say to use it ONLY AS A TEST.

Sorry to say there but you failed to read the warnings. They have been there since the Preview program began. Hope you can get the stuff back with Recuva. If not, tough lesson to learn about backups.

Hello
I used to have almost an entire hard drive (50 gb) worth of .wmv files (ripped my dvd collection). I had to delete all of it since I thought I would need the space for other files. That turned out not to be necessary so now I'm wondering if there is a way to get that data back. The entire folder was deleted - I think Windows said it was too big to put in the bin. I did not do any other work on that drive since.

I tried using some popular recovery programs: Recuva, Undelete plus, restore but they don't seem to get a trace of the files. Instead they display some bizzare files which appear to be from a previous windows instalation. Now I find it unlikely that the entire collection of over 100 hundred files would just dissappear without a trace. So maybe I'm doing something wrong or using the wrong software? I'd appreciate a hand.

Hi, does any body outhere no of a free file recovery programme that will allow me to restore my files that have been deleted. For some reason last night most of my files within the my documents folder disappeared leaving just the shell folders. I used to use a programme called 'Restoration' (I think) which allowed me to scan my hard drive and I was able to choose and recover deleted files. The problem was made worse because I had all of my downloaded programmes saved in a folder within the my documents folder which of course contained the restoration programme. I have looked on the net to try and find Restoration but with no luck. Does it still exist or has it changed name as I downloaded it over a year ago. Thank you in advance

My non-technical brother bought an external hard drive then "synched" that drive to a folder on his internal hard drive that held (of course) all of the pictures of the kids. He claims he then deleted the folder from his internal hard drive and everything was gone from his external hard drive. Nothing in the recycle bin either.

I've never used an external hard drive, so I don't know if any of what he's saying even makes sense, but the bottom line is that he would like to get out of the doghouse and get the pictures back. Does anyone know if this is possible?

I've heard that no file is ever really erased from your hard drive its really just a matter of how much you want to pay to get it back.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I can open the import in outlook express and find the path where the deleted items.dbx is but it give me an error because I have outlook express open to do this. I found a help topic that said to rename the file deletedold.dbx and it would restore but that didn't work either. Any help???

Answer:Need to recover deleted.dbx files

I understand what you are saying about finding the location of the deleted items.dbx file itself (within the system). Otherwise I'm struggling a bit to understand your question. Can you clarify what has happened and what you are trying to do please?Reading between the lines it appears that you might have deleted some emails from the Deleted Items box and are trying to recover them - is that right? If so, probably the best chance is to do System Restore to a date before that. There are free programs such as Recuva. If you can get the original old dbx file back (properly identified as such) you would then have to copy it on top of the one that now exists in the system, and the emails at that time would then be present in the OE Deleted Items box. When you rename the file deleted items.dbx Outlook Express will promptly create a new replacement file and therefore an empty Deleted Items box will appear in OE.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I had a flash drive with .pdf files among others on it. Once I inserted the drive, the compuer would ask me whether or not I wanted to scan the drive because some errors were found. I chose not to scan it. The drive opened fine. But the next time I inserted the drive and chose not to scan it, the drive opened but half the files were gone. To recover the files, I was recommended to use "virtual Lab" recovery software. This program scanned the drive and found some files and saved them into a folder called "Raw Files". Inside of it there are several folders. One of them is of interest to me as it is called Adobe Acrobat Documents There are .pdf files and they probably are the ones I am looking for but when try to open them with the  Adobe Acrobat reader, the message says that they cannot be opened because            "they were either not supported or, damaged, for example, sent in e-mail and incorrectly decoded"My question: is there anything that could be done to bring these files back to life at this point? E.g. re-docode them, so they are decoded correctly?Thanks!

Answer:Would Appreciate Help to Recover Deleted Files

Simple answer is" No" You have already used a software program to recover some files. That may be as much as you can do. In theory, flash drives are supposed to be very reliable. But many users report they fail more often than they shooed.IMHO the best way to store files is on a good  quality eternal drive. Prices vary.

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!

Hello,

I accidentally deleted a folder that has many files in my portable drive. They are not in the recycle bin as I set it for immediately deletion. So I purchased a data recovery program online and it found the deleted files. When I restored and opened the files, they were corrupted. Is there a reliable program that can recover the files efficiently? The Internet has so many programs and I don't know which to pick.

Many thanks.

Answer:How do I recover deleted files?

Has anything been copied onto the drive since the deletion? If it has, the locations where the deleted files were may have been overwritten by new files. If this has happened, recovered files will be corrupt, and no recovery software will be able to recover them correctly.

If nothing has been transferred to the drive since the folder was deleted, then it's a disappointment that paid software fails to recover them. Well-regarded recovery programs include Recuva, PcInspector and GetDataBack (paid). Other posters may have other recommendations from their experience.

Do a Google search for "File Recovery" and you will find hundreds (actually millions) of links to software that will do what you want. Bear in mind, though, a hard disk that has been in constant use (reading and writing) will have over-written many of the files (or parts of the files) and those will not be recoverable.

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.

Answer:Recover deleted files

It's possible the filles may still be there. First try to undelete in your recycle bin. If that's a no go, there are a few commercial recovery programs out there. The only way you can possibily undelete files that have already been deleted in the recycle bin is using such a program provided the files have not been overwritten. If you write something to the same disk it doesn't necessarily mean your deleted files have been overwritten.
If a file recovery program doesn't work, they're gone forever.

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.

On one of my laptops I recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. Usually when I upgrade it automatically creates a Windows.Old folder in my C Drive where I can access all my files from before the upgrade. But this time there was no Windows.Old folder. So I downloaded and ran a file recovery program...it found 0 old deleted files. I ran that same program on a different laptop and it worked fine. So where could the deleted files have went and how can I access them?
 

Answer:Can't Recover Deleted Files

Upgrades do not delete any files. They would be in the same location as they were when you left them.

If you did not upgrade, but installed a fresh copy of 7, the files are most likely underneath the OS and lost. The installation of the OS uses about twice the drive space that the final installation uses, so everything would have been written over.

Answer:recover deleted photo files

Hi

You can use a few of the free software rcovery options to try and recover these BUT if they are deleted then the space they occupied will start to be over-written with new data if they start to save new things, also have a USB pen or different HD to save these images too as again as your recovering the images you maybe over-writing some of the other ones.

Hi

I've just re-organised my hard drives and I've set up a batch routine to backup my files, using Robocopy.

However, as I swapped my drives around, I've copied in the wrong direction. Robocopy has consequently deleted entire folders of important data.

The data isn't in the recycle bin.

What should I do to try and recover the data?

Thanks

Answer:Used Robocopy and deleted my files - how can I recover them?

Is the partition unharmed and still visible in Explorer and Windows Disk Managment?

If it's unharmed, I'd consider PhotoRec or Recuva to recover the files. Both are free.

Ontrack Easy Recovery Professional is also said to be excellent, but I think you ultimately have to pay. Maybe $79?? It will show you the files it can recover, but won't let you actually recover them until you pay.

I'm assuming Robocopy doesn't have any type of "undo" capability.

I'm running windowsXP professional, I've deleted a folder from documents and settings/unknown user.

my logitech webcam had saved all its data files in there. Is there any way to recover the files. The recycle bin has been emptied already before I realized what I lost.
I've tried a utility called "drive rescue" , It found some of the files but not many and the jpg files that it recovered are not recognized as pictures, just get binary data. The folder was over 3.5 gigs, I know, I know, I'm a bonehead for not being more careful. I should never drink and pute.
Does anyone know of any better utility that can go into the free space and recover everything? I remember using Norton Utility when it was a DOS utility years ago. I hated NU 3.0 for windows.

There are many programs out there that profess to recover such files and may do the job, however most if not all are costly.

I have a bad habit of hitting shift+delete to delete files so that I don't have to delete it again in the recycle bin but sometimes I mess up things and delete some files that I don't intend to, with shift+del. What can I do to recover accidentally deleted files in that way? Windows 10 Thank you

Answer:how to recover shift deleted files?

AS I understand it, when any file is deleted by Windows, the directory entry is truncated so the file does not show up again when you run Windows Explorer, but the physical file is still there...and as long as you don't save a new file that could overwrite the old one, it can still be recovered.

I don't think you can do that within Windows itself, but there are a litany of programs out there in web land that claim they can restore deleted files.

There may be better answers, but that's mine.
Good Luck mate!

Answer:desparate to recover deleted files

1/2 life????

i don't do/recommend the quick format.

even with the quick format, reinstalling overwrites the old data.

data recovery can be very expensive and if the oe fies weren't overwritten they may be recoverable.

i keep docs, address book on floppies, music on cd's and if i want to save emails, i email them to myself and recover them when i setup oe/outlook.

Hi, thanks for a great Website, l'm running W7 Ultimate 64bit - here's my problem:

l had to create a new profile for Mozilla Firefox (malware prob) which l saved to my Desktop (bad habit of mine) because l had awful trouble with "bad request page" error when in Ebay ie open new tabs, items, sellers etc, it drove me nuts.

l got rid of most of the malware prob that was affecting Firefox/ebay, so decided to delete my new profile from Firefox and keep the old one, this is when l struck problems:

All my Schematic PDF's and photo folders and several others folders on my desktop disappeared/deleted.

l downloaded a recovery program called "PC Inspector File Recovery" but l couldn't find the said files/folders on the lost or deleted sections of the Drive.

Does it matter if l'm using 64 bit and the recovery Program uses/looks for 8/16/32 fat files?

Is there another way of finding those files/folders? using a different program or W7 itself, l did google for an answer - way too many advertised results to buy S/W and no real answers except for the PC inspector.

No l didn't have these files backed up, could never get my thick head around backing up and trying the recovery when l had XP, so never tried again with W7, so please don't take the blow-torch to me for that oversight/stupidity.

Well l hope thats enough info- so please if you have any clues/answers, l would REALLY glad to hear them.

Answer:Recover W7 deleted files/folders

Hi,
I'm not sure how a Firefox profile would effect your desktop. Are you sure you only created a FF profile and not a Windows user profile? (Could you be looking at a whole new user desktop? Is your name the same on the Start Menu?)

That said, try Recuva which will look for recently deleted files (green light means the files are in good shape). Or Minitool Power Data Recovery (free for home users) which is similar to PC inspecor but might see your files.

Either program you want to copy the files to a different partition or a USB drive so as not to overwrite other files to be recovered.

Is there any way to get my files back that were saved under the account I need them. I use 64-bit.

Answer:Recover Deleted user and files

Hello UltimateHedgehog, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Unfortunately, a System Restore will not affect user files. It's only for system files and instead.

You might check to see if you have a C:\Users\(user name) folder with the old user account name still there. If your Dad only deleted the old user account from within User Accounts in the Control Panel, then it may still be there to copy over to the new account.

Since you have Vista Ultimate, you might also see if you can use Previous Versions with the C:\Users folder to see the old user name folder or files can be restored.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My friend got me RegCleaner, as well as someother programs for my computer -- a Dell Desktop PC, operating on Windows XP Home Edition. I decide to run RegCleaner without the knowledge to whatever it did (I know what it does, but not entirely in detail... that was stupid of me, since it deleted all my registry out of my carelessness) , so now my computer's gone awry.

At first, I didn't notice until I opened my PaintChat page, which requires Java. From then on, I panicked. I have Java installed, and I used my PaintChat just the night before, so I wondered how could it be possible.

I re-install Java, but it did not work -- in fact, it wouldn't open at all. Then, I go to my desktop to open RegCleaner. 'Lo and behold, it would not open.

I tried other stuff, such as the Control Panel option, and it just created another shortcut. I tried opening my Recycle Bin and all it does is multiply itself into shortcuts. Stuff like Zips, Images, and Audios that I have on the Computer Desktop (trust me, sometimes I'm so lazy that I won't save them in their respective folders) would give me a message saying "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.

Hi, I used Puran to recover some deleted files from my external hard drive and when I open some of the files I get the following message:
 
"This document could not be registered . It will not be possible to create links from other documents to this document."
 
The documents still fully open and they look like they are all there. Also, when I look at the properties of some of the folders they say there is 0 bytes in them. I did the recovery twice, once selectively with only the files that I thought I needed such as .doc and .pdf, and again with everything including files such as .cab . chm .dwg .hlp .mdf. Two identical recovered folders from each recovery say they have a different amount of data in them.
 
My question is: are there supporting files that need to be recovered along with the .doc and .pdf files to fix the issues and to make sure i have recovered everything, such as the .cab .chm etc?  I didnt the extra files were necessary but on further research they might be files needed by word. Are they only needed for the program and not individual files?

Answer:what is best Software to recover earlier deleted files

One of our posters used "Zero Assumption Recovery" software and choose the "Image Recovery (Free)" option to recover some lost pictures. To us his situation seemed near impossible but he managed to get many of them back (Recuva found none). I assume he downloaded it from here:http://www.z-a-recovery.com/downloa...I can't vouch for it personally.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I created another admin user account, deleted my original admin user account and did not save the files ( I thought the files related to the actual user profile only).Disaster!All my files, emails,years of work..gone.How do I begin to recover all my work.
 

Answer:Recover deleted user account and files - XP Pro

Deleted files can be recovered with file recovery software. I use PC Inspector File Recovery. There are others.

First off, when files are deleted, they're not really deleted. The pointer to the file location is deleted. All the data remains, it's just that the computer doesn't know where to find them anymore without file recovery software. If you keep using the computer that has the deleted files, the space the files are using could potentially get overwritten by other files, thereby making recovery less possible. Windows constantly writes temporary data to the disk. Any of this data could overwrite your files.

I suggest you turn off that computer, take the hard drive out, and put it in another computer as a slave drive to run the file recovery program.

Once the drive is in another computer, use a file recovery program (search google for 'file recovery' or 'undelete files', etc.) to scan the slave drive for deleted files. You should be able to get most, if not all, of your files back.

If that's out of your experience level, find a good computer technician in your area to do the recovery. Don't go to your local multimedia store to find one, go to an independent computer store. They usually know what they're doing.

The important thing is to stop using the computer until your files are recovered.

is this possible?

I have this computer that used to be part of a large network and i noticed it had many different users so i deleted them and found out the account i was using was not the administrator. so now i'm trying to find out what happened to all the files from the other accounts. are they retrievable? can i go back to restore the accounts as they were? i've deleted users before and it always gave me the option of saving files and folders but it didn't give me that option this time. what could i do?

best buy geek squad wants to charge me hundreds of dollars to help me but if it's something simple i'd rather try and do it myself. any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hi,

This is your second thread about this subject....
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/814259-locked-out-windows-help.html

you have locked yourself out of a computer or accounts.....the computer was given to you, you stated in your other thread, and you deleted something> and cannot log in.

From your other thread:

We are SORRY but as I explained to you already, this forum cannot provide assistance with lost passwords, or workarounds to bypass logging in, do you understand? It is against this site's Rules. Closing this second thread.
Note: Use any search engine like Google....type in what you need to find help with, you should find lots of it, even from Microsoft itself.... but, due to the networking environment, such help may not work!
