Using Shift+Delete to remove files/folders bypasses the recycle bin which is your normal means of recovering accidentally deleted files. You can go to download.com and search for file recovery programs. Some are available that will search your hard drive and can maybe recover what you lost. It is important to do so as quickly as possible because once files are permanently deleted on the hard drive, the sectors that they occupied are no longer protected and can be overwritten by any program or file.
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key but will differ depending on your computer and Bios. Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system. Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd\dvd.
Hi there, So did you mean you performed a system restore after you back up your system?If so,you can try a data recovery software to recover your files.I have succeed to recover files after system restore with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data. Anyway,you can download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to check out whether your files can be recovered.http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
Do you have Norton Security? It could be blocking it.
Uninstall Norton and try AVG antivirus. Norton is a horrible program, I've had bad experiences.
Or disable any antivirus or firewall you have and try running iTunes.
Or try this.
1. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> iTunes --> Remove ...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer 2. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> QuickTime --> Remove ...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer 3. Go to My Computer --> Local Disc --> Program Files. Once in Program Files you will see the iTunes and QuickTime folder and you will want to delete the iTunes folder and the QuickTime folder. Right click on the iTunes folder and select delete and confirm the deletion. Do the same for QuickTime. 4. Restart your computer 5. Disable all features of any anti-virus program such as Norton or McAfee 6. Open Internet Explorer or which ever internet program you use and go tohttp://www.apple.com/itunes/download/and download the iTunes+QuickTime program. *Do not do any modifications in the download of the program.* Just download the program by doing the usual "Next" clicking. 7. Once iTunes is finished downloading, double click on the Shortcut Icon on the desktop. iTunes should open with a large square box and you have to click "Agree." Should be good to go.
It sounds like you unplugged it as it might of been rewriting the boot up files. If you have the recovery CD for your laptop still you can go recover it but using the CD and selecting the repair option. Make sure not to select the format part though.
when you add music to your itunes library, it copies them to the itunes music folder for itunes to manage it or itunes has every song twice in its library, to check whether itunes has not copied your music twice, view your music in LIST VIEW in itunes and if you see some songs has been copied twice delete on of them. You can also delete the songs on your music folder to save disk space or you can leave them if you use another music player other than itunes. But I think you should delete the files in your music folder.
