Hello, I am new here and was wondering if I could get some help. I have a WD external 60gig hard drive thats at least 10 years old that still works and I have files on it I can acesss. The problem is that some files that were deleted a year or two ago by me, I now need back. I searched the internet for what I thought would be a good software program to recover these files, Digital Rescue 4 Premium, and it seemed to have worked. I found alot more files that I thought were on there. Once I ran the software from the main computer, I put that folder on another external drive so I could see what it came up with. Out of the 5000 files it found only a hand full can be seen, the files are pictures, word docs, PDF's, wavs, mp3. It shows the file name with info size, an example like 89 kb or 220kb ect ect ect. These files can not be viewed, seen, or played if it was a wav or mp3. What are my options? Its like the software worked but there is something wrong with each file. The drive uses usb and a power cord and has been unplugged and in the closet on a shelf for a few years. Like I had said the stuff thats on there, external drive, that wasnt deleted is still good and acessable and the drive seems to work pretty good. What are my chances of getting back the files? I hope I am as complete as possible with my explanation/question. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
