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.

How do I retrieve lost files from it?


1. Stop write anything to your coby player,otherwise you will re-write the files and permanently loose your important data.
2. Use some data recovery software like this one. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well. And then scan your coby player with the program, set a destination folder (folder where recovered files will be saved) somewhere on your computer. When the scan was finished, it will return a file list, you can choose the files you want to recover.

I have just installed BOOKKEEPER 2008. An error window keeps coming up Error # 3010 I need to get this fixed as quickly as possible. Thanks, Deb


It looks like a file has been corrupted during the installation process.
Download and install CCleaner from www.ccleaner.com
Uninstall BookKeeper and then use the registry cleaning tool in CCleaner to clean up the registry of your computer.
Re-install BookKeeper and make sure no other programs are running on your computer during the installation.

For managing my iOS device i use and recommend battery doctor app. It has options for deleting junk files. Also "Reset all settings" (not factory reset) will leave all your files intact and ,for me ,it makes system smoother.

I did a system restore back to the out of the box state without saving my files is there anyway i could recover them now or were they deleted from my laptop?


Which operating system ?

Performing a system restore can be useful if your computer's operating system has become unstable because of viruses, malware or missing files.


Prior to performing a system restore, you should backup your personal files and save any programs to removable media.


Recovering lost software can be more time-consuming if you do not have a media backup of the installation software.


In most cases, you can download applications from Internet sites and recover missing license keys and other information through the software manufacturer.


As a last resort, you may also opt to undo your system restore so that you can recover your lost software.


Go to your computer manufacturer's support website.

Enter your model number, computer type, serial number and other information requested. Browse through the system software selections.


Select any that you need to reinstall.

You may also be able to order a system recovery disk.


Insert a software installation disk or connect removable media that contains the installation program.


Allow Windows to autoplay the disk.

Begin the installation program.


If you do not have the license or key required to run the software but have purchased the program, contact the software developer's customer support department via email or telephone.


Visit the software developer's website.

Browse through the products page, and click on the download link for the lost software.


Select a directory to save the installation program.

Once the program downloads, open it, and re-install the software.

Undo System Restore


Click on the "Start" button. Select "Control Panel." Click on "Classic View" in the left column.


Open "System." Click on "System Protection" in the left column.

Click on the "System Restore" button.


Click on "Undo System Restore." Click "Next," then "Finish."

Performing a system restore will keep your data files intact; however, certain files may be deleted in the process.

Deleting a file doesn't mean that it's lost forever.


If nothing else has needed the space since the deletion, the file is still available and can be recovered.


Undelete Plus makes it easy to recover these lost files.


Download and install Undelete Plus.


http://undeleteplus.com/


Once installation has completed, launch the program.


Select the drive(s) under "Drives" you would like to recover deleted files from.

Click the "Start Scan" button.

Once the scan is complete, the right-hand pane will list files that are available for recovery.


Select the files you wish to recover.

By default, they will all be selected.


Select a location to which you would like to save the undeleted files.

You will be given the option to save the files in the original folder selection.


Click "Start Undelete."

Your files have now been recovered and restored.

Hope this helps.

What format should I chose to grab it to a PC?


This will depend on which type of computer and operating system you have
if you are referring to formatting your hard drive to a specific format file system NTFS or FAT choose the Ntsf file system is more secure Ntfs is more powerful than Fat or Fat32 and includes features required for hosting Directory as well as other important security features . You can use features such as Active Directory and Domain - based security only by choosing Ntfs your file system Its easy to convert Partitions to Ntfs . The set up programs conversion makes it easy whether your partitions used Fat or Fat32 or the older version of Ntfs .This kind of conversion keeps your files intact (unlike formatting a partition). If you do not need to keep your files intact and you have a FAT or FAT32 partition, it is recommended that you format the partition with NTFS rather than convert from FAT or FAT32. Formatting a partition erases all data on the partition and allows you to start with a clean drive.

hope this helps you

Whenever I work in excel 2007 file.It show compatibility mode n top and any formula are not working properly in file.


When you open Office 2003 files with Office 2007, it works in compatibility mode, so that if you open the files in earlier version (i.e. Office 2003 etc) there would be no issues (reverse compatibility with earlier versions.
Regarding formulas, rest assure that compatibility mode does NOT affect the calculations at all. All formulas are reverse compatible.
So, it is recommended that you may save the file in Word/ Office2007 format. Do review your formulas for errors (if any).

How do I erase all info on my computer I am getting a new computer and am donating old one, do not want any personal info left on computer


You need to format the hard drive(s).

Right click on the hard drive in 'My Computer' and select 'Format'. This will erase all data on the hard drive. Note, however, that this will also remove the operating system (Windows?) and make the computer inoperable until a fresh operating system is installed.

If you wish to leave the operating system intact you will need to delete all your data folders and files and then empty the recycle bin. This method is not as secure as a format, as the files will actually still exist but only recoverable with specialist software.

My System is affected by virus.when i format the total hard drive still it can run within some days.how 2 remove this virus manually or help 2 format the drive using any bootable software...plz...


I suggest booting from a bootable cdrom disk, instead of a floppy disk, USB drive, etc. Everything except the cdrom can quite easily become infected with a virus just by plugging it into the computer. You MUST create the bootable cdrom from a KNOWN clean computer! If you try to create one from the infected system, you can almost be assured you will only create an infected cdrom!

If you don't have a way of creating a bootable cdrom, try booting your system from your Windows installation cd / dvd. Do a complete format before the install and then SHUT DOWN the computer! Do NOT just reboot and continue with the installation of the OS. Viruses are "memory resident" in that they load themselves up into RAM when the computer boots and will remain there until the machine does a complete shut down. I recommend you shutdown (i.e., turn off the computer) and restart the machine a couple of times AFTER doing the format to be assured that the virus is eradicated.

Once you are satisfied the virus no longer exists, you can go ahead with a new install of the OS. The FIRST thing to do before loading ANY of your personal files back onto the computer is to install a virus scanning software -- and make sure it is active and the virus pattern files are current. After scanning the hard drive for problems and finding none, can you go ahead with the installation / restore of your personal files.

Chances are pretty good that the reason the computer runs OK for a couple of days and then the virus reappears is that a file you have installed or copied over from your backup is infected. Each time you launch the program / file, the virus gets installed and the cycle starts again.

Make sure you have your installer in operating system and your laptop drivers.
