Deleted Back up Plan

I deleted a previous Back up plan directly at the HD (without using the "FreeAgents Tools" - I did it thtrough the Windows Explorer (Windows XP). Winodws Explorer shows I have tons of space in the external drive, but when I try to copy my files to the HD, FreeAgent Tools shows my previous back up plan is still there and there's not enough space in the folder.
I also tried formatting the disk but Windows doesn't let me - it gives me a message saying there are other programs accessing the disk (although I closed all other softwares (including the ones running in the background). What do I do?

How to restore delected files from my usb flash drive


Hi, Even I faced the same problem. I have deleted some of the PDF file from my pen drive and luckily I could get all the files from it. I used Yodot File Recovery software and with the assistance of this software I was able to get all the PDF files. Download free trial version of the software if you want to know how to recover a PDF file. It recovers not only PDF file but also all the files present in the drive.

I deleted some data from my hard disk can i recover it?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, it all depends on what has happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it is too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some good file recovery software. One I used to use is this data recovery program which you can download from site below
