Is there any way of recovering files once they have been deleted off a usb mass storage hd?? I think i've created a partition or something whilst trying to recover my pc as it wouldnt boot up at a


When you delete files from anything on a computer, they are not really removed. What happens is the record(s) for a given file in the MFT (master file table) are removed and the space used for that give file is marked as available. As long as you haven't been copying new files to the drive. Download and run Recuva which is free. Use the deep scan feature and let it run and see what it is able to recover. Then copy the files to a different disc than the one you are recovery from.

Tip

Recover deleted files


This is a tip explaining step by step how to recover deleted data, even if it is already deleted from your recycle bin. Before we start, you need to download the software required to complete this task.
Click HERE to download.


After you have downloaded the software, Disc Digger, all you need to do is to double click on .exe file to run the software. The program will automatically start. Now, for this purpose, I will recover DATA from my Flash drive. Click HERE to read step by step instructions a using a Flash drive.

I will copy some files to my flash drive, format the drive, then recover the Data I formatted. You need to remember that there will be more data recovered than the data I copied, because I have used this flash drive for a while, hence, the other deleted data will also be recovered.
So lets Start!!

For this purpose, I will copy a movie to my Flash drive, format my Flash drive and recover the movie.

Here is what I did:

After I copied the movie and the format was done, I opened Disc Digger, chose the drive on which I want to recover from, and started the recovery. The pictures below will explain the steps I Followed.

To open the application, just click on the extracted icon.

Now, i chose my Flash drive as the drive which i want to recover from, and clicked next to proceed.

I chose the dig deeper option, as this option will recover formated files as well, not just deleted files.

At this point you need to choose what type of file you would want to recover, i chose all file types.

Recovery process in progress. My flash drive is 8 GB in size, the recovery took 5 minutes.

Once the recovery is done, you will receive a pop up, which will state that the recovery is done.

Remember, that once the scan is complete, you need to save the files you have recovered. You need to create a folder in which you want to save the file, I just created a Folder on my desktop. Unfortunately, the name does not recover with the file, so you will need to look through the files recovered and after you have saved the recovered file, you need t rename it.

This software can also be used to recover photos from your SD memory card. Al you need to have is a SD card reader, which plugs into your USB port.

I really hope that you can find this helpful.
Please rate accordingly.

Kind regards

I would suggest copying the data to your My Book as an interim step before copying to the second drive. Copying directly from one removable media device to another will necessarily move the data to your computer temporarily anyway, so there is no disadvantage to simply using your My Book as a middleman in the process.

If you backup all the files to the external device,
and then delete them from your computer,
and then the external device "dies", what will you do, other than cry?

The whole point of "backup" is to have a SECOND copy of your files; not to keep your important files in only ONE location.

Happened to me too in both file backup and computer backup. I supposed MS will address in the future. For now, go to the system settings and unchecked the drives so they no longer create shadow copies . Apply the new settings to erase all existing shadow copies. Then reset by checking the boxes you unchecked. Now try to backup the whole computer again. It appears a shadow copy error is conflicting with the backup process. Once you delete all shadow copies (restore points) it will work.

My Book 1Tb will not let me copy movies on to it.


To transfer files larger than 4GB to the drive, the harddrive must have an NTFS File system. Unfortunately, the FAT32 File system is not capable of handling a single file larger than 4GB (to be exact, one byte less than 4GB). Follow the steps below to format the harddrive with an NTFS File system:
Warning, all data on the harddrive will be lost! Please backup the data on the harddrive before proceeding.
  1. Locate My Computer (Computer in Vista). Right-click on the harddrive and select Format.
  2. Select NTFS from the File system drop-down list.
  3. Select Quick Format as the Format option and click Start.
  4. Note: If NTFS is not an available option, close the Format window and follow steps 4-9.
  5. Right-click My Computer (Computer in Vista) and select Properties.
  6. Select the Hardware tab and click Device Manager.
  7. Expand Disk drives and right-click on the harddrive. Select Properties.
  8. Click on the Policies tab and select "Optimize for performance.”
  9. Click OK.
  10. Repeat steps 1-3.

Onetouch 4 internal error 8211


That error occurs when the 3 Quickbooks files don't have the same date. I'm not sure how they get out of synch, but if you check the dates of the files on your Maxtor backup, you'll find they are different.

The easy solution is to delete the files from your Maxtor backup, and then immediately do another backup. Maxtor will copy the current files over and you'll be all set.
