Windows 7: External HDD data recovery - Chkdsk erased some data!!

05 Nov 2009   #11


I used Advanced File Recovery. I got back almost all of the pics with this program. But it isn't free. There is a trial version that will look for the deleted files. To retrieve them, you'll have to buy it, but you can at least see if it finds it or not (you can also preview them). I did that and saw most of the pics, and went ahead and paid for it.

Windows 7

Lost files after chkdsk
after running disk check on an external hard drive,Folder and files disappeared
Windows 7 Chkdsk searched my external hard drive for bad sector recovery, and it deleted hundreds of my most important folder and files.
unfortunately I have not any new backup from them.
The file system is NTFS.
How could I recover deleted file entries after windows chkdsk in NTFS partition with their path(or atleast their name), using information provided in generated log file?

plz help to find prob and get my files back .
