Lost Files

By Kimmers
Feb 1, 2008
  1. Tonight I was converting some Files and was checking out some Folders.

    Then what happened is the next minute 60% of my files were missing.

    Please i am desperate to get theses back, please help I'm trying to find my disc Utility at the moment to hopefully run that one the drive.

    Go to www.majorgeeks.com, www.cnet.com, www.tucows.com, or others of your choosing, and examine the various file recovery programs. You should be able to quickly recover these files and directories using one of the free or low priced recovery programs under File Recovery at www.majorgeeks.com.
    We use them all the time for standard files and missing files with usually complete satisfaction.

    do not install new programs or delete anything else.

    you need to 'attempt to recover these files' asap,

    but when you've given up, test and repair your HD with run->chkdsk /f
