There's a chance that using Disk Utility on your Mac (use 'Verify' and 'Repair' actions) may help. Maybe after that PC will recognize the disk, too.

It's possible that the partition is damaged or it just can't be read form Windows for some reason. If MAC is able to mount it properly probably Linux will do as well. You can try booting with some Linux live CD and move the data to a different drive. Once you get all the data copied to another place test the drive using the manufacturer's diagnostics tool. ...

On some optical drives, the hardware will have a long timeout on read error which the software can not override. It effectively makes the recovery impossible. Unstoppable Copier works better in hard drive recovery use cases. It may work on some hardware for data recovery, but for optical drive data recovery, the try the free CD Recovery Tool instead. You, ...

I mainly do data recovery from physically failing drives, but the tools are the same and about twice a year I get a client who has accidentally fornatted a drive with important data and I need to recover all that wasn't overwritten. From experience, I can state: -- Yes, there is software that can help you and others in similar predicaments. -- Your data in ...

Any portion of the disk that has been overwritten, by any method will not be recoverable. The portion that has not been overwritten still exists. Changing partition tables still does not delete the data on the sectors. Quick Formatting does not delete the data. Full formatting in win7 does zero out all the data. Different simple hard disk recovery softwares ...

Go to disk management. Right click your desired partition, click extend - use default settings and it will fill up the space.

It depends what died on your old laptop (laptop right?). If the hard drive is still good, just take it out and plug it into another computer (desktop probably easiest), then copy over whatever files you want. Documents, files & firefox profiles are easy to copy (google for their usual location in your OS), but installed programs & games may be ...

This is the sort of thing that ddrescue is good for.

I was thinking that if he used a Linux boot USB that it would be possible to copy the files over to a new hard drive, then use diskpart to clean and reformat the old drive. Assuming the hard drive in the failing system is readable and can be mounted, that should be possible. But the thing with failing systems is until you know the cause of the ...

I know it's an old thread but I just found the answer. On my system (Dell) there are several disks, one of them has remnants of the old Windows installation and another one has current working Win installation. I thought as long as my active Win HD is on the 0 SATA connector I'm good, however it's not the case. In BIOS there is settings for boot order ...

Why it was not recovered along with the other information? Because the data wasn't complete. The file was fragmented. This means the file was located on multiple sectors, and likely on a sector that was bad, hence the reason your Master File Table was lost which was likely also on a bad sector. Where is the location for the pointer that points to ...

Try UFS Explorer... just in case before you reformat anything. Can you take a DD image of the device to another disk? If your device is faulty, that's a really unfortunate bug. https://gillware.com says they can help recover this, but you know that this is really a case of not having reliable backups. Best of luck.

The entry is in hexadecimal form and shows the files recovered are either corrupt or in inaccessible form. Consider asking for refund (If you had paid the price) and try another software. One question, are you trying to scan and recover data using the demo version?

Well, that's the limitations of using Freeware recovery applications. Why not try EaseUS, Stellar Phoenix or some other recovery suites that may have relatively higher chances of full recovery with their actual file names? I don't have idea about which exactly works but have heard that paid recovery applications are more reliable and efficient.

I don't know if this is correct, but by doing a System Restore previously deleted items from the recycle bin had been recovered to their original places. This has worked for me but it depends on how long ago you deleted this file.

Performing System Restore will create an 'Undo' restore point of the state before restoring. You could thus undo the whole System Restore, but that will put you back in the situation with the system problems you were trying to correct. Better is to use Shadow Explorer to selectively resurrect your reverted or deleted user files from the 'Undo' restore point, ...

http://www.transcend-info.com/Support/Software-3/ I tried everything, I mean everything. Finally I downloaded Jetflash application above and it actually worked and saved myself a 16GB memory stick.

You can mount the drive in another OS and the outlook data files mostly available in the documnets "Outlook Files" directory. Please refer the Microsoft link below for details regarding the outlook data file location based on installed OS. https://support.office.com/en-au/article/Locating-the-Outlook-data-files-0996ece3-57c6-49bc-977b-0d1892e2aacc If it ...

Recover Bin stores files on the C drive. So you need to go for that first. And it just kinda isolates the deleted files. The files aren't actually deleted completely! You can recover the data that's not overwritten. For this, you must give the disk to companies that can recover that data. Next time, install a recovery software.

Sorry, there is no way that takes less than a week (or maybe month) to restore file like this. As far I know - hiberfil.sys is compressed and not well documented. Long time ago there was a tool to read windows 2000 hiberfil.sys, it was called SandMan. I think this will not work with Windows 6.0 and higher. Even if you manage to reproduce raw memory that ...

We had this same problem last week and my experience was almost the same as yours. My final resolution was to export the old outlook data to a pst file and then import it.

The files should still be in Trash. Go to drive.google.com Click Trash in the left navigation. Locate the item you'd like to move back to Google Drive, and check the box next to the title. Click the More drop-down menu. Select Restore from trash. This will restore the item back to the owner’s Google Drive, as well as to any collaborator’s Google Drive. ...

A recovery software may be the solution. There are many data recovery software available online. Install and run the software on your system. Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery can be a good option to try. Note: Try to run the software as soon as can be since overwriting minimizes the chance of recovery.
