Windows 7 Home 64-Bit SP1

Ok, so by using mini-tool power data recovery I finally saw my data for the first time in about a week, and I am ecstatic! I am currently recovering everything and unfortunately have to wait some more but it's all good...props to you Burdus32 and all the help. And props to mini-tool and their awesome program. Now everyone can check this thread out when they have a bad day like me.

That's great! It should restore it all back now.

Report back if it works and don't forget to mark the thread as solved if it's all okay. It'll help people in future. :)

All is right in the world again...

Everything is good all my data back, and I've learned a lot thanks to you Burdus32. Cheers, and hope this helps people that get into my situation in the future. And if you ever have any questions don't hesitate to ask. This is the first time anything like this happened to me, and I have always known better, just never had multiple back-up strategies...let me just say, never going to be that dismissive with a PC again..Wheew! :)

That's great you got it all back. One thing you could look at is buying an external drive. Internal drives are good as backup but if you ever get a virus it could infect both internal drives. You could do a 2nd backup to an external and only plug it in when you are doing a backup. That way you'll still have the data safe on your external drive until you've cleaned the infection.

Maybe I'm just too cautious but better to be safe than sorry I say
