Is it possible to restore from shadow copies of a crashed harddisk?

Hi everyone,
My harddisk crashed with lot of important files on it. I sent it to a trusted recovery service, got charged $ 2100 to get what is reminist of the data on the crashed harddisk. The system installed on the harddisk was Vista Ultimate, which has a built-in backup service. When I look at the recovered data, about 50% of the files are badly damaged and the other 50% can be opened. They could also recover the the folders named "System Volume Information" which I guess have the built-in backup files inside. Many files are inside those folders with a size between 700MB to 1500MB. So as I wrote before, I guess they are volume shadow copies of the files, which existed on the hard.
My question is that is there any program/way to open those backup files and look at what is inside? Because I think they may have a copy of my damaged files.

Thank you in advance.

My 120 Gb seagate Sata harddisk got fired due to high voltage shock. What can i do. Is there any way i can reapair it. Is there any way i can replace the logic board of it with 80 Gb board and try.


I understand the value of the files that resides on the disk:) Yes! It is possible that harddisk may back to life by replacing the logic board but of the same model or part number. If it is not possible by replacing logic board due to other defects such as head crash and spindle drive motor opened/shorted, there still a big chance to recover depending how you value the data on it by contacting international Seagate Data Recovery support service with considerable service fee. Hope this helps.

Can't find music files i copied / pasted from PC


While copying files to your external harddisk, you must get a pop-up-screen with animation to see the progress. There's however a chance you didn't copy the files to your exernal harddisk but to your local disk into your computer. Try to find the map "My Music" if you're using Windows. Maybe they're located overthere, instead of the external harddisk.

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.

Harddisk not detected


Hi, I think that your os has been crashed. So insert your disk and boot your system and check that your BIOS will boot from CD (Boot preference - CD ROM). And install a fresh copy of your os. Let me know the result.
