This depends on how much data is on the hard drive.
The inteneded design of a USB portable hard drive was to act as a portable & removeable backup for a main system.
Unless you have another hard drive or an abundance of DVD+R's, you may have to re-evaluate your options.

Tried to run a full system backup with FreeAgent Go. Backup failed and it looks like some files and programs were deleted from my computer in the process.


Unless you asked the backup program to delete files it won't. The program may have deleted some files it created for its own use.
What error code did it give for failing the back up. How do you know you need the deleted files?

I do not want to restore a backup, I want to read files from the backup files


Typically back-up files made by back-up programs are encoded, and depending on which back-up software this may or may or may not allow you to access the backed-up files individually. How you access your backed up files will also depend on the back-up software you use.

For HP's back-up utility, "to recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard" - be careful not to recover the file on top of the current version of that file though.
http://h20331.www2.hp.com/Hpsub/cache/312352-0-0-225-121.html
see also the instructions (manual) for this utility
http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01824301.pdf

This procedure should work for any back-up software.Copy your back-up. Restore your back-up to a new location. Access the files you want from the restored back-up. Now you have access to the files in the back-up as they were when they were made, while still retaining your back-up and your current files. Be careful not to confuse 'old' for 'new' and 'copy' for 'original'.

Deleted file...how can iget it again?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech data recovery as it saved my life many times.

Oo.comhi. if i delete my files from SDR-H85 PANASONIC how i will recover back without problem. i did with one program but didnt help.


http://majorgeeks.com/FreeUndelete_d4407.html

FreeUndelete restores deleted files, including those removed from Windows Recycle Bin. In case of accidental removal of files on a NTFS (1.0 and 2.0) (default for Windows Vista , XP, 2000 and NT), FAT32, FAT16 or FAT12 file systems this is the utility to help.
Supported file systems:
NTFS 1.0, NTFS 2.0, FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32
The recovered files are saved into a new user-selected location to prevent overwriting the deleted files on the original media. hope this helps

Computer tells me "WDDM service not running"


If you want to back up files on to your external hard drive, you don't need the wddm program. Microsoft Windows usualy comes with a back up program. just open up the windows help and search for back up. and open the back up your files option and then click the link that says click to open backup and restore center. Follow the on screen instrucions and save the files to your external drive. I have an external drive, and I recomend that you do not back up yor files. This is only usefull for saved games. backing up music and movies takes to long. What I do is move all of my music and video files over to the external drive and I can acess them drictly from the drive itself. you can't do that if you back the files up, the files end up being commpressed into a zip file of some sort that says backup drive. when I installed my external drive, it was given a drive letter. I open up my computer and itsays My Book - with drive letter G. I click on it like it is a regular drive and I can save stuff to it. I save my videos to this drive and can watch them at any time. If you want to back up files I recomend unchecking the back up music and video options and saving music and vide files in the manor that I mentioned earlier. Then back up all other files and it will get done much quicker as these files usually are not near as big as music and video files are. So you can ignore the error message and be carefull not to download any updates for these drives. I did this and the drive came up with an error message that told me that my new drive was defective and needed to be replaced. I was angry so I took it back to the store, and replaced the broken drive for the same one. I will never again install any updates for my external hard drive. the error message said something about having no drivers, but the help info for the drive said that the drivers are automatically installed for all windows opperating machines. once again I urge all people with the western digital My Book essential and simmilar drives - stay away from those bad update files!

My precious files...


If you have not written anything to the disk since you accidentally formatted it I can recover all your files for you. If you wrote any files to it some of the files will be ruined. I have FBI forensic software that can do what you need and more. Rate this fixya and post an e-mail address and I will get the software to you.
