If you are talking about deleted files then google.retrieve lost data or something along those lines.

or even use www.download.com and look for it there. becareful as most of them will ask for funds after download but there are free one's out there just keep looking..

if this is not what you mean by retrieve data then pls clarify further as to what you need :)

Dell error code 2000-0142


Any error code for a hard drive isn't good, and should be reason to get a new one right away. So long as the drive is still able to be accessed, you have a chance of retrieving your data. There are free utilities to help you 'clone' the data to a new drive, but you may want to ask a tech-minded friend for help if you've never done it before. It sounds like the drive isn't dead yet, but is definitely on its way out. Good luck!

How to Recover Deleted Files from Seagate Hard Drive in Windows XP?


Accidently delete important filesusing Shift+Delete keys in Windows XP? Can't get valued pictures back from therecycle bin after you emptied it? How to retrieve data from 'not recognized'hard drive and reconstruct inaccessible partition?

You'reLuck!Deleting or formatting won't make the data erased permanently.Thosedeleted data are still stored in the hard drive. They're just invisible orinaccessible.Only the FAT or NTFS table is erased (the information about wherethose data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors ofthe hard drive.
So long as those deleted data are not overwritten by new data, it's highlypossible to recover them. The most effective way is to rely onsome data recovery program.

Tenorshare DataRecovery is a powerful data recovery program that can easily recover lost,damaged, formatted and accidently deleted data from your laptop or computerhard disk and all kinds of USB media drives.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deletedor formatted.
This program is equipped with four critical modules:"deleterecovery", "format recovery", "partition recovery" and"raw recovery". It can recover data after deeply scanning yourstorage device to look for lost data due to drives crash, virus corruptedpartitions, system sabotage, physical damage etc.
It supports for almost all Windows systems like Windows XP,Windows7,Vista,2000,2003,NT and common file systems (FAT12, FAT16,FAT32 and NTFS).You can get ithere: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

It can RecoverLost Data Due to

Accidental deleting

» "Shift + Delete" without backup
» "Delete All" when deleting useless files
» Cut files instead of copying and pressing"Cancle" button
» Emptying Recycle Bin after delection
Formatting
» "Media/Drive is not formatted would you liketo format now?"
Virus infection/attack
Unexpected power off
Others
» Factory setting of device
»System reinstalling but want to retrieve the oldfiles
» Inaccessible partition or drive
» Dead hard drive
» Losing files during transferring files fromstorage device to PC/laptop
» Pulling out card while the camera is on

Then,howto retrieve deleted files?


Withinfour steps, you can get back your data:
1.Select deleted recovery. It will take you a few minutes to scan your storagedevice;
2. heck the deleted datayou want to recover;
3.Select a path folder for the recovered files;
4.Click "OK" to finish recovery.

Onemore tip:

If the hard drive can't be detected(means can't showup in 'My Computer' as a drive letter like C: drive),you can try this way.Putthe hard drive in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Thenwhile it's still cold plug it into the computer.If it fails, you will have to go to a recoveryoffice but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whetherthey can recover the data or not is not guarantee.

Is there any way to retrieve a password if you dont have the reset disk and not loose all information on hard drive


You can back up the data by moving the hard disk to another computer if you don't meet any permission messages when doing so. Or if your data is not on the system partition, you may try reinstalling without re-partition and format anything - install it on the original system drive such as C: drive.

I need someone to retrieve the information from my CRASHED hard drive - please help.


You are going to have to send your hard drive to a data recovery specialist. You can find several of them if you google data recovery. This is the one i recommend to most people

How can I repin a hard drive so I can download information?


I've actually had a Hard Drive running with a missing pin. However, somewhere along the line it will give blue screen errors, but atleast may give you enought time to get what you can off it.

My laptop was smashed and won't turn on. How do I retrieve hard disk data?


You can try to physically remove the hard drive and install it in another similar laptop and get your data that way. If you can find a a two drive bay laptop to install it in just put it in the second bay and go into it that way (this would be the best solution). If this doesn't work you may be able to get one of those external hardrive cases and try to get one for the hard drive format you have (if possible). The only issue with that is most of these units (that I have seen anyway) are meant for regular desktop hard drives. If the data you have is extremely important you could send your drive out to a data restorer but this is very expensive and only recommended if you have really important stuff on their. Good luck, hope this helps.
