Computer crashed and I need my files

My computer crashed last night and we had to recover it. But when we did, I lost all of my files. Is there any way that I can restore my files without having to pay an arm and leg for it?

    What kind of things did you lose? Was it just word docs or emails, etc?

How to Recover Lost Data from Crashed Hard Drive?


The worst thing about crashing your computer is losing all your data. Pictures of years precious memories, importantdocuments in your business and current projects of weeks hard working---all arelost unless you have backed them up on a CD or memory stick. If that is it,it's heartbreaking!

There are still hopesfor retrieve your data. Taking the computer to arepair service is one solution. But it is so expensive (usually costs $1000 ormore), especially when recovering data.

However, you can retrieve the lostdata from the crashed hard drive by yourself! Here is a step by step guidefor you to do so:

The first thing you should do
is toremove the crashed drive from the computer and install it as a secondary drivein another computer operating Windows Os. Make sure that it is detecting by thecomputer.After youhave set up the secondary drive, boot up Windows. Then you can copy and pasteyour files from the drive.

However, there are may be two trouble. One, you can'taccess the drive (means you can't open it); Two, your files are retrieved butyou can't open it!

Don't panic!Just download a data recovery program, and with a few simple clicks, you willbe able get your data back. Thereare some costly windows tools available for this. Here I recommend you two cheap ones:

>>Recuva
>>TenorshareData Recovery

Recuva is a free one. It doesn't work in very extreme casethough. It may turn out that your files are recovered but you can't open them. Ifthat's the problem there are more serious software solutions for this, like Tenorshare Data Recovery. It costs a bit but much more effective.

Next,
downloadTenorshare Data Recovery here. Be careful, do not install it to the drive that you are tryingto recover. Doing so could actually overwrite files that you want to restore.Install it on the primary drive that you are booting from.

Last,
when you use thistool, select 'Partition Recovery'. And within several clicks, you can retrieveall your data!

Besides,
if the hard drivecan't be recognized, you can try this trick. Put it in a sealed plastic bag toavoid condensation. Then put the drive in a freezer and leave it overnight.When you are ready, pull the drive out of the freezer and hook it up quickly.Act quickly because you may only have around 20 minutes to do this. I have seensome reports however, of this fixing the problem all together.

If it fails,
you will have to goto a recovery office (where offers recovery service) but let's hope not becauseit will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover the data is notguaranteed.

Tips & Warnings:b>
  • The recovery tool mentioned above only supports for all almost Windows platforms such as Windows 98/2000/2003/NT, Windows XP, Windows 7, Vista. For Mac, you can google search to get one.
  • Find a friend who is good at computer to help you.
  • If your computer crashed because of a virus, copy the files to an external hard drive. Do not move directly to a new computer.
  • Hard drives are fragile. Be careful and do not drop it.
  • Run your antivirus software regularly.
