File finder question

Post by 6ksqft »

Hi, I have just suffered from a Vista Recovery and lost a lot of files and folders. The program states several times, "this procedure does not change your documents" however I did lose all of my desktop, quicklaunch, and folders containing photos. Can jv2008 be used somehow to restore these without doing another recover? I know the filenames from before but i was just wondering if there's something like a "$" in the new or moved filename. Frustrating. :x

You could try the PowerTools "File Recovery" tool. Some of your missing stuff might be recoverable if the Vista recovery didn't change too much in the disk master area (NTFS, whatever...).
