    Are you saying that your drive does not read any data from any of your written cds?

Still don't know what you can do to rescue your lost drive files right now?

You can also check it and follow its steps to see whether all your files could be restored successfully.
In the future, to avoid such data loss troubles, always regularly save your drive stuffs on several places, not only on one hard drive.

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

How do you erase hard drive


A hard drive is the brain of a computer. However, over time, that brain can become overworked and overly saturated with old software and outdated information. It becomes clogged and needs a fresh start. By erasing a hard drive, you can give your PC that fresh new beginning. With a few steps you can erase your hard drive manually, without the aid of expensive software.

Make sure your data is protected before you proceed. Whatever you do not save will be lost once you erase the drive. Use a CD or jumpdrive to save your information. Boot with a system disk. Before you continue to erase the hard drive, use the system to create a system disk. Use a 3-1/2 inch floppy disk and format it with the command "format a: /s"; this will create a bootable disk that contains system commands. Place it in the drive of your system and turn it off, then back on. Reformat the hard drive. Once you've booted with the system disk, type "format c: /s"; this will reformat the hard disk, virtually destroying the old hard drive you used to know. Depending on the of the drive, the formatting may take a fairly long time. Once the formatting is over, use the command "fdisk" to create partitions (which are logical sections for your hard drive's storage). Given the newer hard drives and operating systems of today, you can fdisk the drive and use all of the space. or if you dont have a floppy drive Download a disk wiping utility, such as Darik's Boot and Nuke (DBAN) or KillDisk. DBAN is an open-source product, while KillDisk is available as a free, closed-source download. http://www.dban.org/ http://www.killdisk.com/ Once you download the file, save it to your computer somewhere easy to remember. Insert a blank CD into your computer and use a CD writing program to burn the hard disk wipe utility to the blank CD. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, there is a built-in utility that will perform this task. Back up the data on your computer that you want to save, if necessary. Insert the CD that you created into the computer that is attached to the hard drive you wish to erase. Power on the computer and choose the setup option to boot from the CD. Once you have booted from the CD, you will enter into the hard disk wipe utility. Depending on which utility you chose to use, this screen will vary, but the choice you want to select is to erase or wipe a disk drive. Choose the hard disk that you wish to wipe and confirm that you wish to permanently erase the data on it. Before confirming this, you may wish to physically double check and ensure that you are erasing the correct drive. Once you start the erasing process, it cannot be halted, paused or reversed. You will have to wait for anywhere from a few hours to even a few days for the process to complete, depending on how large your hard drive is.

Hope this helps.

I would like restore my files & system like first day...........but i cant......please help me.........thank you


You need to click on Start (which is located on the lower left corner of your screen ) > Then click on "All Programs" > Choose " Accessories " > Then "System Tools" > Then click on "System Restore" > then choose the date where you want to have your files restore

System Restore will allow you to restore your files on an earlier date provided that you have it save that date as a "restore point"

Another option is to have your important files save in an external drive or flashdrive then have your windows reinstalled to make sure that fresh and clean

Hope this help you a bit. Have great day.

My d drive says it is 99% free space but it has 4.53 gb how do i get more gb


Your D drive is usually for system restore. Insteed of system restore disk the manufacturer will partition a drive and place the installation data in the D drive. You should have a C drive and this is where you want to focus on. Delete unwanted pictures , music, and other unwanted files. Movies will really use a lot of drive space.

How do recover picture and music files only from hard drive. The computer that it was attached crashed and even when I tried to restore it before it crashed the data would not transfer to the restore point...


Connect the external drive to a different computer, and "browse" the contents of the drive -- if the disk can be read, then the files can be copied, and maybe burned to "blank" writable CD/DVD disks.

WONT BOOT UP, I GET A MESSGE TO START NORAML OR SAFE MODE, EITHER WAY IT GOES 2 A BLUE SCREEN - DO I HAVE 2 REPLACE THE HD?


Since you do get the prompt for normal or safe mode, it means that the system can at least read the boot sector of the drive. It sounds like the data on the drive is corrupted, rather than the drive being bad. There are restore utilities available that could possibly make the drive readable again, thereby fixing the problem without losing your saved files. If you replace the hard drive, not only will you lose any saved files, but then you must also get another copy of the operating system, or buy the restore disks from HP to re-install your system on the new drive. If you do have the system restore disk(s) I would suggest using the repair console first to see if you can restore the system before doing a fresh install.

Feel free to ask questions here.
