    Hi Ekse!

    Thanks for your commentary and warning!
    I have bought such a programme (Hetman Uneraser) already, and it can recover from formatted drive all right, but the problem is that it is unable to recover the former logical configuration (FAT and corresponding files at their former places).
    I need software that could do a backoff. Would you pls recommend an apt one for me?

    Thanks a lot, Ekse :)

    I'll try the recommended product (for Windows)

    Yes, I have decided to use Active@ Partition Recovery prompted by you, Ekse.
    As to results, they can hardly be got until tomorrow for it takes a lot of time and energy to make sure your solution really helps to fix the problem.
    Hope it is a FixMe solution. I will inform you anyway
    See you

    Hi Ekse!
    Unfortunately, I have still had no opportunity to try the recommended software.
    The HDD in question (380 Gbyte) is used as a built-in element of my Panasonic DMR-EH68 video recorder and it takes normally about 2,5 h to disconnect and disassemble the rec.
    I'm a 9-18 employee so my opportunity can be realised only on tomorrow night.
    If I have any trouble getting the HDD restored I will let you know immediately.
    See you
    Alex

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

There is no FREE program that can do this for you. Well there is one free program, but it can not recover from formatted drive, it can only recover deleted files.http://www.piriform.com/recuva

-WARNING-
You should immediately stop work to avoid further data damage. Do not install any program or data on the formatted drive as this will cause permanent data loss.


You can use software called File Scavenger to recover files from the formatted drive.

http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm

I've used filescavenger for years, but if you think it costs too much, maybe you can try this one instead http://www.adrc.com/software/data_recovery_express/index.html I've not used it myself, but its much cheaper.

You need another Hard drive, that has same or more room than the problem drive to be able to recover all its content.


Please let me know if you have any trouble getting started or if you have any other questions.

Again, these kinds of major data loss situations don't have free solutions.

    did you receive my message?

  • Ekse Oct 16, 2010

    Allright. Hope that fixes it, if it doesn't then if you could tell me exactly what you want to accomplish tomorrow or later, when ever you get it. This thread will stay open for a week from the last comment, and another comment will keep it open for another week from that moment on.

  • Ekse Oct 16, 2010

    OK ( I must post a comment every time you respond. )

  • Ekse Oct 21, 2010

    OK.

My 10 year daughter tried to delete a picture she didnt like. She pressed the wrong button and erased all frames by mistake. All our wonderful holiday pics gone ! is there anyway of getting these back -...


If she only deleted them instead of formatting them, there are expensive software programs that can retrieve the pictures providing you didn't keep adding more pictures to the card.

I have some type of spyware on my vista and I was wondering if i reboot the computer would the virus be remove. If so, how.


if you mean factory restore the answer is yes because the drive is formatted and wipes everything on it and reinstall as if new.

The answer really is antivirus/spyware programme, install and run this free AVG 8 programme (make sure you download the free version) and see if it is detected

Error mes


Hi,

Go to the motherboard's CMOS/BIOS setup, normally by pressing "Del" button to enter setup immediately on powerup before XP boots. Set you PC to boot from the CD ROM and not your HD. Thereafter, go through the installation procedure again. You need to format the HD again to clear all former failed installation.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back info on motherboard brand and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

HD format


Hi, Your idea is basically correct. Other alternatives are: 1. Boot from and run Basic MS-DOS or FreeDOS with disk utilities in the FDD of the PC where the HD(s) installed. Set to boot first in FDD in the CMOS/BIOS; 2. Run MS-DOS or FreeDOS with disk utilities in a CD in the CD ROM of the PC where the HD(s) installed. Set to boot first in FDD in the CMOS/BIOS; 3. Use an external enclosure to connect the IDE & power connections of the HDs to a USB port of another working Windows PC. Is is similar to your idea but you need not open up the 2nd PC nut would require the interface device. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
