When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:

Where do you plan to restore your files from, the Maxtor drive or the external hard drive?

In my personal experience, I would recommend you to restore them from this Maxtor drive because you may have much more chances to do it there.

1). Do not save anything new on this Maxtor drive since then in case of data loss.

2). Try to restore these removed files easily from this drive by using a drive data recovery freeware. There are many data recovery programs available online. But, not all of them could work as efficiently as we hope. Therefore, you should pay much attention to select a proper one over the internet.

If you really have no idea about data recovery stuff, you could try to use this drive data recovery freeware:

3). Do not save the restored files on the same drive in case of data recovery failure.

4). Do not forget to back up everything important at least on two hard drives.

Your file is not dissappear permanently after the remove. Only the space is made available to other new files, but the old data is still there. In another word, you can recover data from hard drive as long as the space is not overwritten by new files.You can recover deleted files from hard drive and Card Data Recovery must be the best choice.http://www.card-data-recovery.com/recover-deleted-files.htm

Hi,

You can use Hard Drive Recovery tool to recover your missing files from your external hard drive. A couple of days ago, I was able to perform file recovery from external hard drive when I lost a few files due to improper file transfer. I suggest you to download the demo tool initially to examine the recovery results. I am sure that this tool will recover your missing files.

1720 s.m.a.r.t HDD detects imminent failure the computer cant boot-up.


if you haven't got a good back up, external to the hard drive, it may be too late
dead hard drives are mostly un recoverable
take it to a computer repair shop to make sure that it is not a boot problem
if the hard drive is failing, replace it with a solid state hard drive that has no spinning discs to fail

How do i turn off the HDD


What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



hope that helps if not let someone here know.

How to remove a bios password from hp 6720s


Why can't people put a problem in the right catagory?
Generally, you can remove the Bios backup battery or use the jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios completely.
Google "reset bios" to get an idea of how to do it, or do the same in Youtube for a video. Lots of them are out there.

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

How to install bluetooth on my pc


Hello,
This depends on what kind of bluetooth you plan on using. Certain things like a Blu-Ray DVD Drive needs to be installed and hooked up internally in your PC, while something like Headphones or a Keyboard simply just needs a USB-based transmitter or a Bluetooth card that plugs into your computer.

Hope that helps,

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.
