Question about Computers & Internet
My Sony desktop is 4 years old. It came with a partitioned hard drive, C&D, about 20 GB and 100 GB, respectively. I also added another hard drive in the machine shortly after purchase (160 GB). Everythign worked fine for 3.5 years until the 20 GB C drive started running out of space. After getting tired of always trying to free up more space, I surfed around on my computer and found the settings to modify the partition!! Well, when I set up to double my C drive, the machine did several things all at once: 1) It reset my C: as to when I first purchased the machine (my virus protector was already expired), 2) my D: was unaffected (it was not maxed out on space since I used the installed hard drive most often) and 3) my self-installed hard drive was completely wiped 100%.
I tried undoing the procedure but to no avail. I have not written anything new to the hard drive so I am wondering if its at all posibble to retrieve all the items I lost (tons of pictures/videos).
No. Not if the partition table was re-written on the 160GB and any data was written to it. If there is info that MUST be retrieved, there are pay services that can bit-retrieve and reconstruct some files. There is no guarantee.
