Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Accidentally deleted files from 500GB WD

I have tried several programs to recover the deleted files including
PC inspector, they all look for files that I deleted some time ago, but none of them seem to find the files that i deleted recently, I have not over written any thing since the deletion, so i am pretty sure that the data is there, but i dont seem to find a way to get to it.
Maybe some one could help? Some technique relating to FAT table reconstruction?

My first time on here, but.... I assume you're running Windows - if drive spins up, that's good - if it's OS drive and you get no Windows, probably a Master Boot Record (MBR) - if no files or scrambled, likely a FAT issue - each can be repaired through your original WIN CDs. If totally, partially deleted or formatted, you can recover almost anything with GETBACK software. I LUV it, and I think they may still offer a trial. Go to www.runtime.org
Many versions, but you'll know what to do when you see it - you can also find many step-by-step for the Windows Repair options on the net. Good Luck!

It's hard to say from your description what the problem is but the first thing to do is determine the condition of the drive. You can check if there are problems with the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Or if that does not work you will need data recovery help. A good choice for low cost and fast data recovery is http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They do data recovery remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask you to make a donation after they recover your data.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Next" and wait for it to do it's magic.

I deleted my video files on my n81 8gb,how can i recover it?


First thing to note is that the deleted data on the phone will remain there until something new is saved and overwrites it. This might not happen immediately but eventually, after continued use, it will.
Either connect the phone straight to a PC using a USB cable (if supplied with the phone) or take the card out and put it in a card reader attached to the PC. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.

Then try some photo recovery software on the PC. This should recognise the phone or card and then you can scan it using the free download of some good photo recovery software. That will show you what files still exist on the phone or card and what can be recovered.

Deleted smart card by mistake. want to get the pix back. Have a Olympus Camedia C-3000 Camera, 3.3 mega pixil. Is there a program to reinstate deleted pix?


Have you ever accidentally deleted pictures from your cameras memory card? Or pressed the Format button instead of delete button and wiped your card clean?
However, there are also a lot of good open source / freeware apps out there that can usually get the job done. And that’s where the nice people at CONVAR come in – offering a program called PC Inspector Smart Recovery , which can recover lost pictures for free. What’s even better is that it’s extremely easy to use and works well (based on my tests).
Please note that after you’ve lost the picture, DO NOT take any more pictures on the memory card, as writing new data to the card lowers your chances of recovering the picture. Also note, that recovering the picture is not 100% guaranteed, but there’s a good chance your picture will be recovered.


Step by step instruction, here it is: 1: Download PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
2: Connect your memory card, either by a little memory card reader, or hook your camera up to the PC via the data cable.
3: Run PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
4: Select the drive which is the memory card. It should be the one that has just connected.
5: Leave the format type as .JPG.
6: Choose a destination for the recovered files.
7: Press ‘Start’.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.
