Windows 7: Recover Files after deleting partition with folder structure?

18 Jul 2011   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

In my "D" i had a folder called..."SEBASTIAN DATA" i had EVERYTHING there.

That folder is now called "003FB0" but inside that, i had all my folders back...From a fast point of view i think i recovered all..
Maybe i just recovered "almost all", But really this program ftw..

One advice...i selected 2 non-default,options "Deep scan (or something like that)" plus "RAW Data Recover lost files".

Now I'm with GetDataBack. (Using the 2 options i said) and a Samsung F4 2TB w/carry disk @ usb.
I don't know what will happen with this GetDataBack, but i'm reading the name of lot of my files while scanning, so i'm having a little hope.

Currently 6% Done;
110000 Files identified;
450000 MFT Entries (Idk what is that);
20000 Index Allocs (idem);
Boot sectors 7.
MFT stands for Master File Table - How NTFS reserves space for its Master File Table (MFT)

It makes me incredibly happy when people are able to recover their lost data, ESPECIALLY when they're able to do it themselves vs paying several hundred dollars for a service(Granted that service is generally worth it when it means having your data retrieved). It's such an awesome feeling when you look at the recovery results and what you are looking for is there. It doesn't always work that's for sure, but GDB has saved me and my clients so many times it's unbelievable.

slightly off topic, Runtime also has other great software, to name my favorites...

- RAID Reconstructor : An outstanding piece of software that has the ability to recover broken RAID arrays and rebuild or image the data off. Hardware or Software RAID recovery capable.

- Captain Nemo : Mount alternate file systems within windows for analysis and recovery. Can recover data from an image made with Raid Reconstructor. (extremely handy duo)

Yes, that software it's truly good. Recovered all my structure very well..

With recuva, half of my files were like damaged and most of them with "random_name".

At the moment, the unique file i saw damaged, is the "windows_xp_mode" virtual machine. But the rest of the files, mp3s(i think all mp3) etc are fine!

I'm heading for a USB 3.0 HD external drive and gonna make a BACKUP every 3 months from now (i had a lot of problems recovering data in the past now its time to learn with this second chance...). my country i found these 3 USB 3.0 drives at good price...(iomega ego desktop; iomega ego portable; iomega prestige portable). If you know something about them give me an advice
