Windows 7: File retrieval

23 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
File retrieval

I have lost a file (.wpp) which is my website file and I desperately need this as I need to update my website. I have checked my backup but cannot find it there

I have ran several file retrieval software through my hard drives (I had to reinstall Win7) but to no avail.

Can anyone recommend a good (great would be better) application for searching out lost files after a format and Windows reinstall please?

I cannot afford a specialised company so if I can do it myself all the better.

Thanks for any/all input. Oh, I don't mind paying for the right application.

Best regards

Hello Graham,

You might see if you may be able to use Previous Versions to hopefully find a older copy of the file to restore.

Hope this helps,

Hello Brink,

Unfortunately not, that is why I would like a good 'file retireval' application to try and find this. The ones I have used have not been successful sadly.

Thank you anyway for your input, it is much appreciated

Hi Graham,

Chances are very slim seeing as you reinstalled and then updated Windows. However, try this:

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

Once installed, try a "Deep" scan and see if it locates your file, and in what condition.
