My system crashed, and when I started back up, my hibernation file was gone. Now this is a problem as I was about to make a complete partition copy and needed what was also stored in that to analyze a issue with my system. Now I know the whole CMD, turn hibernation on bit, but what I want to know is, is there anyway to restore the exact lost .sys file and if there is a way, how.

How much have you used your system since the data loss? Regardless, even though there are lots of free and paid data recovery utilities on offer, I highly doubt you'll be able to perform a perfect 100% recovery of the entire hiberfil.sys file.

Any recommendations on what ones to use. – user88311 Jan 24 '13 at 13:40
You can try this one and this, but there are many more (perhaps some that are even better). – Karan Jan 24 '13 at 17:53
