Problem reloading system..

Started with system recovery, using the option to save my data in C:mybackupdirectory. However, after it copies the files, then tells me to restart it, after the disk pops out of the CD Rom drive, it then comes up with NTLDR is compressed, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. This just keeps looping, and we can not get any further. Any solutions

Go into netbios and verify that the boot device lists the CD drive before the C: drive. It sounds like it is trying to boot off of the C:\mybackupdirectory and I think it needs to boot off of the CD to continue with the OS installation.

Recover deleted files

This is a tip explaining step by step how to recover deleted data, even if it is already deleted from your recycle bin. Before we start, you need to download the software required to complete this task.
Click HERE to download.

After you have downloaded the software, Disc Digger, all you need to do is to double click on .exe file to run the software. The program will automatically start. Now, for this purpose, I will recover DATA from my Flash drive. Click HERE to read step by step instructions a using a Flash drive.

I will copy some files to my flash drive, format the drive, then recover the Data I formatted. You need to remember that there will be more data recovered than the data I copied, because I have used this flash drive for a while, hence, the other deleted data will also be recovered.
So lets Start!!

For this purpose, I will copy a movie to my Flash drive, format my Flash drive and recover the movie.

Here is what I did:




After I copied the movie and the format was done, I opened Disc Digger, chose the drive on which I want to recover from, and started the recovery. The pictures below will explain the steps I Followed.


To open the application, just click on the extracted icon.



Now, i chose my Flash drive as the drive which i want to recover from, and clicked next to proceed.


I chose the dig deeper option, as this option will recover formated files as well, not just deleted files.


At this point you need to choose what type of file you would want to recover, i chose all file types.


Recovery process in progress. My flash drive is 8 GB in size, the recovery took 5 minutes.

Once the recovery is done, you will receive a pop up, which will state that the recovery is done.

Remember, that once the scan is complete, you need to save the files you have recovered. You need to create a folder in which you want to save the file, I just created a Folder on my desktop. Unfortunately, the name does not recover with the file, so you will need to look through the files recovered and after you have saved the recovered file, you need t rename it.




This software can also be used to recover photos from your SD memory card. Al you need to have is a SD card reader, which plugs into your USB port.

I really hope that you can find this helpful.
Please rate accordingly.

Kind regards

How to back up files before recovery

It sounds like your boot files are system files are corrupt. You really don't need to do a backup because you really don't need to do a recovery back to the original system when you purchased it out of the store. If you have a system disc you can just repair the boot files by inserting the system disk and rebooting from it. Then let the operating system do a repair by getting to a DOS (Command) Prompt and type in the following command: chkdsk /r
It will run for an hour or more and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low but that is ok. Just let it run to completion. This process does not destroy your data.

Since you can't boot your system now as it is, there is no way to save your data other than removing the hard drive and slaving it to a working computer, then copy and save your data.

These guys can help you at:

They are very economical and will have a solution.

Doing a recovery will mean you will also have to reload all the programs you've installed since you purchased the computer and reload any printers, cameras, etc. that you've loaded since the original purchase. It's a mess. Try the repair option instead and save yourself the time and headache.

About a month ago I lost all my pictures, favorites and had to reload my Norton. Everything is still in the computer somewhere, only I don't know what happened or how to find and get them back. Please help...

You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, it all depends on what has happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it is too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some good file recovery software. One I used to use is this data recovery program which you can download from site below

Even if you formatted the drive and re-installed XP your data would be recoverable quite easily.

However use the free trial of this app and use the Gutmann method of deletion to stop recovery of sensitive data.

If you did a system recovery, it may have told you that it would save your data, but it wouldn't be in the recovery partition. That partition is meant for system files only and it isn't too large.
It could also have told you that your hard drive would be reformatted and the system returned to it's new condition. This means all data was wiped from the hard drive.

So--the answer is: It depends on what you agreed to when you did the system recovery.

Need to reload windows xp on Emachines PC

Yes all you have to do is.........

Turn off the Computer
Turn back on and Press F11 repeatedly when the message "Press F11 to start recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:

Full System Restore (with Backup): This options will move all Hard Disk contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of Windows. This option preserves your existing data files, however all applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option requires 4GB of free Hard Disk space for the new OS.

Alway suggest backing up your data before you do any recovery
