Windows 7: Need help with restoring data from deleted user

Need help with restoring data from deleted user


I need help with restoring data. I made a stupid move and need to restore data that I deleted.

This is what I did.

I deleted the user. When the windows ask if I want to delete user's data, I clicked "Yes". After that, I recreated the same user again.

Please advise if this is possible to restore user's information after I did that.

thanks in advice.

Use Glary Utilities to recover the deleted files.

Provided those haven't been overwritten, you should be able to recover.

Recover your files to another pen drive/ external drive and not to the same drive to avoid any further overwriting.

Accidentally deleted my recovery partion

Let us know how it did.

Note: Installing Glary Utilities in itself, may overwrite some files. But if you want to do it the easy way use this hoping it wouldn't overwrite any of your files.:)

Otherwise Run TestDisk for DOS from a bootable pen drive and and try to recover the files.

How do I make bootable media which includes TestDisk?

A general guide on using Test Disk. Regain a lost drive using Test Disk - An Illustrated Guide

Note: Once TestDisk finds the partitions, you will only copy the files by giving the Command P to list the files , select the files and copy it to another pen drive/external drive which should be connected before booting into TestDisk.

I found another alternate method of running Glary Utilities portable that would not write anything to your existing system drive.

1. Download Glary Utilities - Portable 8.435KB on another computer. Glary Utilities Builds - Clean Registry, Fix PC Errors, Protect Privacy | Glarysoft

2. Extract the Zip file into a Pen drive. You will find a folder Glary Utilities portable containing Integrator_Portable.exe

3. Boot your system from which you want to recover, plug in the pendrive and run Integrator_Portable.exe

4. Click on Restore deleted files, select your C drive and look for the deleted files. If those are not overwritten, you may copy those to your pendrive.
