Question about AT&T 1717 Digital Answering Machine

3 Answers

Recover deleted messages

I have an AT&T 1715 digital answering machine, on which the owner has recorded the voices of his kids over the years. Someone has accidentally pushed the delete button. According to AT&T, the last 10 messages are retained in memory. I am looking for a key sequence or other means to get the machine to play these messages.

    The manual does not address this issue.

  • joerg33 Jan 29, 2008

    I have already tried a data recovery outfit, and they can not handle it, because they don't have file format information.

    The deletion occurred a while ago, and the unit does not have a standard keypad.

Hi,

Try this out:

If you delete a message by mistake, you can recover it, as long as you do so before exiting your mailbox. Press * one keypress at a time until you hear the main menu for your subscriber mailbox. Then press 7 to recover deleted messages. Follow the commands to locate the message you want to keep.

Goodluck,

There's nothing in the manual about recovering deleted messages. And it does state that deleting messages is permanent. After some intensive googling I couldn't find a solution for you. I think you may be out of luck. The only thing that comes to mind is if you rip the flash memory chip out and get a data recovery agency to read it for you, will be pricey! and you may not be able to read the files with anything, might be proprietary.

    I'm afraid that there probably nothing that can be done then. I've looked at other manuals for AT&T machines and they don't have anything, these machines are not meant to be used as data stores and are not very robust.

well there is a solution... But it depends, is your machine uses a tape or digital recording device.
If it is a tape, than it can be a very tricky. You will need to contact some kind of recording studio as in music or news studio or police forensic (if you have friends there) and they might be able to retrieve it. If it is a digital than it is simple, all you need to do is to go to any computer place and ask them to recover a lost data. they will transfer it to a storage device such as flash drive and that's it, although it might cost you up to $300-$400.

File Recovery from Olympus VN-6200 PC voice recorder


Hi,

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to another PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Good Luck!

I deleted date from Olympus VN-4100PC


When the Digital Wave Player application copies the files to yourcomputer, the default location is under My Documents>Digital WavePlayer>Message. There, you will see FolderA, FolderB, etc. +Recording & Schedule folders.

If the files are not there, use a file recovery application, such as PhotoRec to recover the deleted files.
