Yes, remove the drive immediately and do not use it. Everything you do may overwrite the older data. Get a sata to usb adapter (assuming it's a sata drive?) and run data recovery software with the drive connected via usb to another computer. You can do it on the original machine without removal but this greatly increases the risk of irretrievable deletion. Here is an example of recovery software 15 Free Data Recovery Software Tools Free File Recovery Software
there are many others, free and paid for.

There is a scanner that says it resets airbag codes to remove the light on your system if it comes on is this true?


No.
A scantool that specifically is programmed to read the SRS system on a vehicle likely has the ability to clear the code that turned on the lamp if it faulted once and then the root cause never happened again. However in most cases (think 99.9%), when a warning lamp comes on...be it Check Engine, ABS, SRS/Airbag, or whatever else; there is a fault that needs to be checked/repaired. Any competent scantool that specifically supports your vehicle's enhanced systems will likely have the ability to command the computer to erase the fault, but unless the cause of the fault is repaired, the light will return immediately or as soon as the conditions of the fault re-occur and you not only will have gained nothing, but valuable saved fault data and information that a technician can use to diagnose and repair the fault may be lost in the clearing procedure making the diagnostic/repair much more difficult and the chances of misdiagnosis much higher.
Further. since its an SRS related fault, if the code is set due to CRASH DATA STORED (Meaning the SRS computer activated safety systems due to an accident or a perceived accident and deployed airbag, seatbelt tensioners, or active headrests), then no conventional scantool can clear the lamp without significant repairs. The Airbag computer on modern vehicles has a "BLACK-BOX" memory circuit similar to what airplanes use, When a crash occurs (Or what it thinks was a crash), the computer stores the memory permanently and writes it to a location that cannot be cleared by plug-in tooling. WHile there are ways to clear it, they will require custome erase and reprogram of the SRS module using specialized equipment. No scantool is natively capable of this function, as it is a law that the black box data be automatic and UN-eraseable in the event followup investigation is needed by law enforcement or fire or insurance agencies. It also is designed to withstand fire or total destruction of the chassis.
If the problem was caused by a lateral repair, there is the possibility the repaired part is not compatible or not properly programmed to work with the other modules on the vehicle, or that the newly repaired system now is activating a test or system that wasnt correctly operating or self testing when the previous problem existed. It may not be the fault of the technician, and may merely be a case of repairing one problem allowed a previous problem to become visible.
If the replaced module is showing the lamp/fault, the installing tech should have furnished an explanation as to why his repair to the airbag system did not result in normal operation and continued diagnosis or provided an estimate for additional repairs to finalize the repair.

I downloaded a bunch of ringtones and a few wallpapers to my phone. Today the screen went out on me. I can't see the screen to delete the stuff out or to reset it. What do i do


Occasionally you may need to reset your Pocket PC Phone. A normal (or soft) reset of your device clears all active program memory and shuts down all active programs. This can be useful when the device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
To perform a soft reset:
o Use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device. The device restarts, and then displays the Today screen.
Warning! Always turn off your device before performing a soft reset or installing/replacing the battery.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings-the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on the device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain
To perform a hard reset:
  1. Press and hold both soft keys on the device. Keep these keys pressed, and at the same time, use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device.
  2. Release the stylus but keep the soft keys pressed when you see the following message on your device screen. "Do you want to erase all user data and restore to manufacture default?" will appear.
  3. Slide open the hardware keyboard, and press R to restore to factory default or press X to exit the hard reset process.
Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else.
