As far as I know, you should not play around with the disk if you want to recover data. Use some recovery tools such as Recuva and recover the data. That is all there is to do.

After some research I found TestDisk, and it seems like it might be what you're looking for. I'd encourage you to be very cautious when dealing w/ this kind of stuff, though, as I've had some past experience where trying to repair things can make the situation a lot worse. Best of luck! As for your second question, no. :P

Hard disks are assembled in a clean room environment - one that is entirely dust free. This is because any small particles floating around inside the container can cause damage. It is unlikely that you would be able to create a clean enough environment in a domestic or office environment. This effectively eliminates any useful DIY remedies. Your options ...

You're using an OpenVZ container. It's not a real VPS; it does not have emulated hardware of its own, it doesn't even have a real disk, and the /dev/simfs is merely for show – all containers run out of plain directories on the host computer's filesystem. Therefore direct block access won't be possible. As for ptmx, it has nothing to do with this ...

Here is how to perform the restore: Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Click Next on the first window. Click the box for Show More Restore ...

I made the silly mistake of formatting a partition by accident. I was installing a linux distribution called crunchbang on my netbook, so I don't have to bring my laptop to class every week. I was intending to format a USB flash drive for this purpose, when, to my dismay, I formatted an ext4 partition containing over 500gb of data to fat32. This is a ...

Answering to your questions. First there are two types of bad sectors, a physical bad sector and a logical bad sector. To read more about it visit this link If you have a logical bad sectors on your flash drive, you can fix it by either a Windows Check Disk tool, or any third party tool like ChkFlsh tool. However, Blocking bad sectors cannot be done by a ...

As far as I know, the microcontroller on the USB stick will substitute bad sectors with reserve sectors so that the computer won't see the defect. If the stick runs out of reserve sectors, meaning many sectors went bad, you should see the number of bad sectors if you run chkdsk at DOS prompt.

Insert the flash drive, use HDTune "Error Scan" & grab a coffee ;-)

One that comes to mind is PhotoRec, usually packaged with TestDisk : PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted. The name comes from Photograph Recovery but it recognises a lot more than picture files.

You also might try something that has worked for me in the past While it does not always work I have had success placing the drive in a freezer for at least a few hours. Sometimes a few days helps. Place the drive in a Ziplock type bag and remove as much air as possible. Place the bag and drive in a freezer and leave it for at least a few hours. Remove the ...

Firstly, it's a bit of a myth that SSDs will wear out, especially for typical desktop use. But anyway: From another superuser question: In theory, it is possible to read data even after all program/erase (p/e) cycles have been used up. In fact, the JEDEC specifies that data on consumer-grade SSDs should be readable for one year after all p/e ...

Your PC has been/was infected with malware. Refer here, and this, and this. Honestly I'd suggest you to reinstall Windows with a clean installation disk as it's no longer worthwhile to even attempt to remove malware from an installed operating system. If you already have a backup (100% clean) that's even better. However if you feel that you don't care if ...

There are multiple free programs intended for data recovery and carving that are highly effective and reliable. I'd recommend trying out: foremost - http://foremost.sourceforge.net/, scalpel - https://github.com/machn1k/Scalpel-2.0 PhotoRec - http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec Commercial tools are far easier to operate but not necessarily generate ...

The reason why you always must recover to a different partition from the one you're recovering from is because the software doesn't tell the HDD where to place the recovered data. When your utility is specificly reading from "empty" portions of the disk (which is what disk recovery utilities do) and then telling the drive to write data back to that same ...

If your drive doesn't show up in your operating system you will have a hard time recovering the data yourself. Using "Magnetic Reader" without opening the drive is not possible, because it is a very precise work. Your drive positions it's heads using actuators, we are talking micrometers here, maybe less in modern drives. Putting it in a freezer worked 20 ...

Thread "How to recover data from dead hard disk (with tic tic noise)?" perfectly answers your question. The answer is no, you cannot do it yourself without very complex high tech equipment. Also, no, you cannot do it without opening the drive and thus voiding the warranty. The good thing is that now you are more experienced as you have lost your valuable ...

These can work but it can take time. They work along the same lines. From: Superuser Q, Wikipedia, PcSupport If you have a Portable usb took it up and copy the new install, so you have a copy just in case.
