You can use a thumbdrive or an external HD to restore to if you have one laying around. If C:\ is your only option, then C:\ is your only option. :-/

be sure to limit what you are doing though, every time data gets written to C: there's a risk of data loss- even temporary internet files.

    it *shouldn't* overwrite your files, but i can't promise that it won't. the possibility exists, or they wouldn't warn you of it.

Hi there, my HtC chacha was low on memory and advised me to delete data, by mistake i deleted all media files which means photos and all sounds liek ring tomne/alarm and so on. is there anyway to retrive...


there are many free data and file recovery programs on the web
you could retreive themif you have not written or downloaded any and saved more to your hard drivehttp://majorgeeks.com/Free_File_Recovery_d6792.html
Free File Recovery is a small and easy to use application that will help you to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user errordigital cameraclip_image001.gifmemory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!

http://majorgeeks.com/NTFS_Undelete_d5532.html
NTFS Undelete is free software that allows you to recover deleted files. It recovers files directly from hard drive, and it will work even if you empty Recycle Bin.
Before downloading NTFS Undelete, please consider the following:
When you delete a file, its content physically remains intact on the media, but the occupied space becomes marked as free. Next file saved to the disk may overwrite the contents of the deleted file.
It is very important to make sure that no application writes to the drive or partition where deleted file is located since every new file (even a small one) may overwrite the deleted file.


hope this helps you

Memory card is yours and in my Easy share kodak I seem to have erased them all. Poss to restore


What is needed is an "undelete" program. These types of programs work very well when the data has not been overwritten. If an overwrite has happened, a portion of / or the entire file that was overwritten will be lost. This is very similar to the way the "Recycle Bin" in Windows works.

Some of these programs are free, some offer a limited trial and some will not allow use at all without paying for a license. There are different scenarios that each program works best in. Here is a list of some of the programs that can undelete files (not just picture files). Review them to see which suits your needs best.

Good luck!

I deleted all files on my Mp5 epower player


THere is a software called free undelete that can help you recover deleted files from literally everything. Since mp3 players show up as drives when connected to a PC you should be able to scan it with free undelete and recover all the files to their original location. You can get it from
http://www.officerecovery.com/download/freeundelete.exe
Usage is simple. Connect your player to PC. When it shows up as a drvie launch free undelete and scan you player(removable disk). When it finishes scanning, select all files, then right click on one of the files and click recover. Hopefully your player will be back to normal.

Good Luck,
Sai.

I have a canon powershot a300 annd I accidentaly foramted my flash card when I was trying to look at my photos how do I get them back?


Don't Panic, It is very easy to get these photos back, you need to get an 'undelete' program. The best one I have used that is free is called 'undelete plus'
*IMPORTANT* DO NOT take any more pictures if you want to revcover the lost ones. as this will OVERWRITE the ones that where deleted. ok now,
click on this link to download undelete plus, http://undelete-plus.com/files/undelete_plus.exe

or this link to go to the home page of undelete plus http://undelete-plus.com/

Once you have downloaded it and installed it, plug your memory card or camera into the computer, On the Left hand colmn of the undelete plus interface, select the drive that represents your camera (or memory card) then click start scan on the top left corner. it will scan and pick up your pictures and PRESTO there you have them!! Once it has finished scanning simple select the pictures you want undeleted and select 'Start Undelete' from the top task bar.

Computer Lost Files


So many possibilities, it's difficult to know where to start.. I would look for some recovery software.. It's easy to use and there are several free versions around. Eg File Scavenger, Ontrack easy recovery, Active Undelete enterprise etc.. etc. It's important to try to recover your files before you overwrite them.. Although most of this software can still recover it after that has been done. Quite good stuff really. Good Luck.
