It is potentially possible to recover corrupted files from a hard drive if the corruption is logical instead of physical (both are possible through professional data recovery but that can be extremely costly). Here is a free tool you can use to recover corrupted files that works pretty well in my experience https://www.piriform.com/recuva/download Here ...

Step 1: Rename the files, for example: file.part1.rar -> fileA.rar file.part2.rar -> fileB.rar file.part3.rar -> fileC.rar etc.. Step 2: Use 7-Zip to extract each file. Profit! (In some circumstances, renaming is unnecessary and you can let 7-Zip extract all files for you.)

I recommend IsoBuster to pull all your data out from multi-session discs, packet written discs, hybrid discs or even damaged discs. Other than the last use case you can copy the data without creating an image. The Pro version's not free but you can click the "Free Functionality" button when prompted during install and see if it suffices. Data ...

Windows cannot natively understand the format of a Linux disk. So you have a number of options. The simplest is to get hold of a Live CD version of Linux and boot from it. All of your disks should then be visible and you can copy between them. You could also install VirtualBox, set up a Linux VM with access to the physical partition. Finally, you could ...

See here for a table. The take home summary is: Magnetic data and cassette tapes: 10-20 years Nintendo Cartridge: up to 10 years Floppy Disk: 10-20 years CDs and DVDs: 5-10 unrecorded 2-5 recorded Blu-Ray: Not certain, probably over 2-5 recorded M-Disc: 1,000 years (theoretically) Hard Disk: 3-5 years Flash Storage: Depends on write cycles, ...

For others hitting these possibly rare circumstances: I was right in my suspicion that the missing folders were still on disk, albeit invisibly. "Program Files\", "Program Files (x86)\", and "ProgramData\" were found entirely intact in the hidden c:\found.000 (I suspect that resulted from an automatic chkdsk preceding a boot back into Windows, after the ...

If you have the hard drive you want to transfer to, you can use a bootable disk cloning software, such as Clonezilla, to copy your internal drive to the external one. You will need a USB to SATA adapter, which I will link to below. ...

There is unfortunately no known solution available to repair or recover files affected by CTB Locker. Once the files are encrypted, they cannot be decrypted without the key. CTB Locker uses a varying algorithm to encrypt the files and thus cannot be decrypted using a fixed pattern or algorithm. Some data may be recoverable using low level recovery ...

Thanks for every ones suggestions. Finally I did it I used Active File Recovery Professional. It can recover data much as possible. I tried dozen of software some of them are top recovery tools and everything fail. Using Active recovery I manage to create image of failed disk and mount it and recover the data but the problem with that is naming. All file ...

I would use the PST repair tool that is built into Outlook, here is a KB article from Microsoft on how to do this https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/272227 Okay next to that there must be real damage to the PST structure. Maybe trying a 3rd party tool that will try to reconstruct the file and drop off what is damaged. At this point you are at disaster ...

I had good results from otherwise unreadable disks with this software. http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk This next one is a solid recovery tool as well. It can get files even if your file table is broken or if they were deleted. It's a damn good forensics tool. It dumps things in a really unorganized way, but you can get all of the data moved. ...

You zeroed the whole disk, it's gone. dd at its finest has rendered your data safe. Despite some conjectures otherwise, that's all it takes anymore.

For recovering data from dying or formatted drive I would recommend use of R-Studio http://www.r-studio.com/Data_Recovery_Download.shtml The best thing about this program is that it is capable of restoring files even when Partitioning data is damaged. But this tool is not for free. The basic version which should be enough for you costs $80

Windows 7 makes auto backups of all its directories. It's a long shot because you deleted the child directory rather than just the files but it's possible that if you right click inside the parent directory, choose properties then the previous versions tab. It might be able to restore from that.
