I have no Idea exactly what the software has actually deleted but suddenly programs like Msoft word etc dont work. I have tried using system restore but it didnt work and now I have no idea how to return my system to how it was before i clicked on that blasted delete buton!!!
So If anyone knows how I can restore my lost files etc. I would be extremely appreciative to hear how!!
Ok I just wrote about PC Inspector. Here is what I wrote.
Why does PC Inspector not work on Physical drives?
I put this in here because this might wok on your logical drive.
This is a free programme.
Search for this on CNET downloads.
And....There is another that will definatly work. Called EASEUS. But you can only recover 1gb of files. If you want all the files then you will have to pay out like 70.00.
The 1gb of files that I found and restored worked perfectly.
Yes the above reply came in while I was writing this one now editing.
Do check the recycle bin first.
