  • OT: Recovering deleted files

    last june i had a bit of a fight with my computer after installing itunes and well... i deleted my entire user account on my computer, including the files on it.

    is there any program i can use to recover these files? theres a certain song i wanna listen to and i can't find it anywhere... but i had it before my big episode.

      if you've written any files or defragmented since then, chances are its gone. However, if its there... theres a way to get it, but i havent found anybody who will tell me how yet.

        by deleting the user? it's not hard

        and when you delete it, it asks if youd like to delete the files too

        i clicked yes

            There's a program called PhotoRec that does a pretty decent job of recovering files, although I believe you need an operating system to run it. PhotoRec's free, but it's also pretty simple and I don't think it recovers file names. There's another program--the name of which eludes me right now--that does the same thing, only it's not freeware, and it does a better job of recovering files.

            Here's what I would do:
            1) Download an .ISO of Knoppix Linux and run it off the live CD--you should be able to access whatever's left of your files if you try that.
            2) Post your question on a computer forum--it's highly likely you'll get better help there than you will here.

            Good luck!

              I accidentally deleted a bunch graphics I did... paid a guy 160 dollars to recover them. He went through and got EVERY thing on my drive and put it on 8 DVDs. Embarrassingly, he of course saw all my pron. He kinda looked at me differently when I came to pick it up.:arg:

                    after 4 months of using the hard drive... you're probably sol unless you pay big money (a data recovery company generally starts at $5k and there are no garuntees).

                      lol at the people that pay for a data recovery. If it's overwritten it's gone. The end.

                      The only companies that charge 1k+ for a recovery are with drives that are physically ****************ed.

                      You need to download some software. That's how other places will do it.

                      There are a bunch out there.

                      One I like a lot is called Final Data.

                          lol ok well if he has any hope recovering his song he better not have done it.

                          The means to recover something any further he won't get access to.

                              Send it to the feds with a note "I think my friend put child pron on it, wat should I do?". They'll recover every single file.
