Preferred Solution: accidentally deleted the volume utility

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.)

Hi,

Today I was in Disk Management and accidentally removed Volume K: which was my external Seagate Hard Drive. I meant to re format and delete the files but not delete the acutal volume.

I now cannot see my drive K: when I go into My Computer, but it is their in device manager, when I plug it in an out, i get the noise, but I just cant access it, so I did a system restore to a few days ago, but no look its still gone, i actually am not worried about the files on it, I just wanted to be able to use it again.

I am using Vista Home.

Rgds

Answer:Accidentally deleted volume under disk management

You should be able to go back into Disk Management to re-initialize and reformat the drive. With the Disk Management window open, look down at the list where the individual drives are listed in bold print (it should list Disk 0, Disk 1, the CD drives, etc). The drive in question should be listed; right click on the bold print for the drive and choose initialize. Once that is done, you should be able to partition and format as usual.

Hi, I accidentally deleted the volume on my 3rd hard drive and now my Windows Vista PC won't even recognize the drive. How can I fix this?

The problem started when I put my old Barracuda 160 gig drive in a usb external case and couldn't get it to work until I put the jumpers on 7-8. The problem was, it was asking me to format the drive which was full of files which I wanted to retrieve. Through a series of now obvious mistakes, I first shrunk the volume backwards, I meant to shrink only 50 MB but deleted all but 50 MB and then stupidly deleted the entire volume.

What I need now is to at least be able to have my PC recognize the drive again and to be able to restore the full volume but would ideally like to still be able to retrieve the data, if that's even possible at this point. Also, why does, or did my computer only recognize this drive in the 7-8 jumper configuration? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony

So while i was going through my Zune media player software, i was deleting music that i just dont listen to anymore.
i have an 80g zune, and i had to free up space to sync up my library. Quite a bit of music.
So in about the 3rd hour of deleting music...i get delirious, and just start clicking at things and deleting.

Somehow, I (while holding ctrl to select music) hit ctrl+A and hit delete. Yep I deleted my entire library. I'm awesome...
I deleted the music, not only from my library, but from the music folder on my computer.

The recycle bin only has room for so much and has only a fraction of the music I had originally.

Please...HELP ME RETRIEVE IT!

I have heard legend tell of a mysterious place known as MS-DOS...and by harnessing its powers, you are able to retrieve any old files that you accidentally deleted?...

Answer:I accidentally deleted something...

There is no DOS with XP or Vista.The important thing is to quit using the computer until you have decided on a plan to reclaim the files so you don't overwrite the files beyond recognition.I've heard positive things about PC Inspectorhttp://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/file_recov....htm?language=1

Hello,

In working with a laptop with Windows 98SE and trying to clean some items out, a tab was inadvertently left checked instead of unchecking it (the Windows cache). It went on to delete the whole hard drive and now when trying to boot up all that appears is the "C:" prompt. Guess it has gone into DOS mode?

Since there is no emergency reboot disk and the system is not presently accepting the factory CD with all of the programs at this time, perhaps because it only defaults to the "C" prompt, those cannot be used.

Tried going to START --> RUN and then input "Win" there but that did not work to try to get Windows back. Would appreciate any suggestions to see if it is possible to get going again where I could start to rebuild the programs that it lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
 

Answer:HD Accidentally Deleted

I'm a little confused. You say you



Tried going to START --> RUN and then input "Win" thereClick to expand...

but you also say



when trying to boot up all that appears is the "C:" promptClick to expand...

If the Start button appears then you are in Windows.

If you are only getting the C:> prompt try typing:
CD C:\Windows

If the prompt then changes to C:\Windows>

Then type

Win

If it doesn't change type DIR and see what is listed if anything.

I hate to come here with tech related questions and/or problems, but I'm really stressed over something my dumb *** did tonight.

I have three hard drives - a 300GB PATA drive (D, a 300GB SATA (E drive that contains my Windows installation, and a 500GB PATA (G drive that contains a back up of the 300GB PATA drive (both of which contain all of my important files, such as music, games, ect.)

I've been having trouble with my Windows drive for a while now, as there is some sort of short that causes the SATA cable to not insert properly. I was having trouble getting Windows to even install tonight, so I did something monumentally stupid and installed my Windows disk into the DVD drive.

I went to Windows setup, figuring I could create a partition on the G drive and install Windows and thus throw out the failing E drive. I formatted a partition, which turned out to be on my D drive by mistake. After fumbling a bit, I finally have Windows up and running from the E drive (didn't complete the installation to G).

Problem is, now both of my G drive and D drive, which again contain all of my music, videos, ect. are gone! I tried Windows system restore and it did nothing. My D drive is showing up as empty with just the Windows directory, and the G drive is showing up as unformatted and unallocated.

So, is there anything I can do to recover my stuff? Or am I monumentally screwed?

I had to recently replace my power supply. When I restored my system everything that had been added since 2004 was either inop or gone. In the mean time my wife or son opened facebook or my space and hooked into a virus called "Protection Center" along with its buddy "Defense Center". I tried all sorts of ways to remove these tough viruses and finally wiped the hard drive of most things on it. Once I got control of my PC back I began reloading all that was lost including my security programs. I think I erased some important functions while I was trying to get rid of the virus. Is there a free program available from windows,HP or compaq or someone reputable that can show me what I am missing such as dll's or registries? Can they also show me how to repair these lost functions without having me download some program that is "free" and then wants 10-20-30 dollars or more to actually fix the problem?

So I was clearing out some stuff on my PC and I found a AMD catalyst software thing which I thought to be for my old graphics card (I recently upgraded to a NVIDIA) so I uninstalled it thinking nothin of it I then restated my PC following a windows update, and my mouse and keyboard was not working neither was any other usb device! But my mouse and keyboard still work in boot menus and in the BIOS so I assume it is a driver issue! I have tried my mouse on other pcs and it works fine!!

I was just wondering if there is any possible way to fix this, like downloading the driver from the BIOS menu or something! I need my computer as soon as possible

I am using windows 7 if you're wondering with an MSI MS-7721 motherboard, AMD processor I'm not sure on much else I'm not really a tech guy

Also my computer has a PS2 input for keyboard and mouse, like the old style green and purple so would it work if I purchased a ps2 mouse and then installed the drivers again

Hi,

I have Windows 2000 Professional and while trying to delete the 'Brilliant Dig' spyware I also deleted HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\. And now I cant open some web pages especially the javascript links. It says 'Error on page'

Also, I cant open Microsoft Word anymore. If i try to do so it says: "the windows installer service could not be accessed. contact your support personnel to verify that the Windows Installer service is properly registered."

When I try to open a word document saved on my C\drive it says: "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel."

and boot then go to the recovery console and type "fixmbr". If you are going to play around with linux as a second os I suggest you learn more about dual booting. Of course, after you install MDK 10 you may not use anything else. I installed mandrake 9.2 and haven't used my xp box in quite some time.

I accidentally deleted a partition... oh the shame...

I've done this more than a few times for customers, and Acronis has always found the partition(s) in seconds. This time I pointed it to pretty much the exact sector the deleted partition begins on and I got nothing.

Anyone know another tool to simply undelete a partition?
 

Answer:Accidentally Deleted Partition

Try TestDisk

I got a virus, which seems like a FakeAV, ran my Sophos antivirus scan, in the quarantine was an item called ZAKmem-A, sophos said the only solution was to manually remove the item i804prt.sys, so i did. It didn't work so i restarted in safe mode. Now it's obvious to me that was big mistake because i can no longer log in to the computer. Is there any way to undo this damage without losing all of my memory?
 

Answer:I accidentally deleted i804prt.sys; please help.

I believe the file you are referring to is I8042prt.sys which is your ps2 keyboard and mouse driver. If the file was named i804prt.sys then that was probably malware. I assume you cannot log in because you do not have a keyboard or mouse, correct? You may indeed have a virus. Try attaching a USB mouse and keyboard. You may be able to log in.

If a USB keyboard and mouse is not available, you can recover your data using Puppy linux. Download Puppy linux and burn the iso file with Imgburn. Then boot the CD and copy but not move the files to an external hard drive. What OS are you using?

So I have an ipod touch 4, and on my old computer the apps I downloaded were saved in one spot. Then, when I got my new computer, newer apps started saving in a new spot, and whenever an app was updated, it would be moved to the new folder.

I had assumed that all of my apps that I was still using had either been updated, or that just using them would lead to them being moved to the new folder, and so deleted the old folder, but I am now aware that that is not the case and some of my apps are no longer present on my computer.

Fortunately I have all of my apps backed up on my external hard drive, even those ones, though I'm worried that those ones may not be the most recent versions, and that in the case of some of my games the save files may be significantly far behind.

Oddly enough, the apps still appear in my itunes folder fine, other than that they have an exclamation point next to them and when I click "get info" they can't be found, but they still appear on my ipod and work fine and have the most recent saves, despite having synced my ipod to my computer multiple times since then.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I might fix this before I somehow end up losing the saves on these games?

Hello everyone!

I had a dual boot on my laptop (running windows 7 and arch linux). I decided to get rid of the linux partitions and accidentally deleted the EFI partition. As a result, my laptop now doesn't recognize that there is any operating system on the computer.

What I have tried: I am currently using this: http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/52515-windows-8-cant-start-due-missing-efi-partition.html and the post by Genet with Option 3 since I allocated the space back to my disk C. I am running into an error part way thru the solution though where after I do "create partition efi size=260", it comes back with "MSR and EFI partitions are only supported on GPT disks. Convert the selected disk to GPT and try again". I don't know if I want to do that because its my local disk C...don't want to mess that up and change the format of that.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

If they are stored on the easyshares server, you better email kodak and ask them if they can recover them.

If you deleted the pics from your hard disk, install it as a slave on another pc, download getdataback (http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-faq.htm) and install it on the new pc, and see if the files are on the drive, then you can retrieve them to your friends hard disk.

Problem is when I try to access ''Documents and Settings'' my old account's folder is still there but It is blocked. I remember blocking other users from my files awhile ago but I need to get all my files back!

It won't let me enter my files. All it says is ''C:\DocumentsandSettings/Owner is not accessible.

Is there any ways I can get these files? I heard I can somehow connect to another computer and send them. I don't know. Any programs I can use? I'll even buy. Please help.
 

Answer:Accidentally deleted account

You need to take posssesion of it since it is not recognizing your current User Name as having authority to access it.

In XP Pro you only neeed to right click on the directory and select the Security tab where you will find the option to add your user name to the permissions list.

In XP Home you must boot up in Safe Mode and do this.

Not necessarily bad but by doing so, ComboFix related files and folders will remain on the system if you ran the tool before deleting it. The correct way to uninstall ComboFix can be found here. If you have not emptied the Recycle Bin you should be able to restore the file to your Desktop and follow those instructions. -- If you encounter any problems using the switch from the Run dialog box, just rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe, then double-click on it to remove.BTW, if you have not already done so, please read ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

I'm unsure if this is the proper section of the forum, but here goes. I upgraded to Windows 10 when it first was released. I had no issues initially. Randomly, my computer chose to log me in to a temporary profile. I was unable to access my files or pictures, and no amount of enabling the built in administrator and running the sfc /scannow command had any effect on the problem. It simply told me there were corrupt files that they couldn't fix. It was suggested to me that I use the built in Administrator account to delete the profile I had been logging in under. I did so, and somehow managed to delete all profiles. I am now unable to log into my computer at all. The only account available says it's the administrator account, however, when I attempt to log in it says the account has been disabled.
I am at an utter loss as to what to do. Any advice would be appreciated.

PLEASE HELP!


p.s sorry for my use of the word "thingy"
p.p.s me and electronics have a bad relationship
 

Answer:I've accidentally deleted the sound off my laptop

Hi there, rjamda.

If you're using Windows, you might be able to correct the problem with a system restore. The process reverts your OS and driver configurations to an earlier state. You have to be extra careful, though, as a bungled restore process can mess up your laptop in a very bad way.

As for reinstalling the driver, did your laptop perchance come with a CD? If it did, then maybe you can have look there and check for the drivers you need. If your laptop did not come with a CD, then you may want to check this link: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection.

Remember, you need to download and install the correct drivers for your laptop's make and model. You need to be very careful about that.

Having said that, if you have a "bad relationship" with electronics (and you and I are very much alike in that way ), perhaps it would be wise to have someone more experienced with PCs there to help you out with all of this. I'd even go so far as to suggest that you take the laptop back to the place of purchase and have the tech guys have a look at it. I really doubt the problem will take too long or cost too much to fix.

Hope this helps even a little.

Hi

I was quite the fool this morning when I accidentally deleted the wrong folder from my USB stick removing a bunch of word files. I though I had it properly backed up on my other PC, but it turns out that one word file was not saved in my back up. Now I'm trying to find any glimps of hope to get this file back as it took me an entire month to write the story within it.

Things I have done:
I have checked the recycle bin but nothing was there to begin with. It was the first thing I did.
Word has a auto-saved function from what I can understand and I have tried to find it and open what was there, but to no avail. Although it may be possible that I did not do it properly, I don't fully trust my self when it comes to stuff like this.
Several recovery softwares - I've tried a bunch of Data Recovery softwares but only two has managed to "recover" or found the file. Recuva managed to bring me everything from the deleted folder, however I cannot open a bunch of the wordfiles it contained includind the one word file I strive to recover. EaseUS I have tried the free trial version and it as well has managed to find it, but I worry that the software is unable to show me a preview as it is able to do with other word files. I do not wish to spend that much money on a program just to recover one file that I can't open anyway.

Of course, now computer won't boot properly - boots to a black screen with cursor (no matter which mode I use, safety, safety with command prompt, etc). I can't boot neither windows repair nor windows install disks.
Is there any way I could recover/fix the lost registry keys? If not, is there a way to preserve at least some of my files? Willing to provide more info if necessary.
