Labels in the root are like "000A09", "000B0E", "000D82", "008CBA", "005863". Content varies from website .bmp's to major files will lots of my pictures or music, or numerous shortcuts.
Also some assessment questions/thoughts . . .
I'm still laying off the primary hard drive in case I want to do a more refined search via GetDataBack & filters, but my time is running thin for that option.
I found a folder with compressed sub-folders labeled "RP1101", "RP1102", etc. Could these be usable Restore Points?
Each sub-folder is blank under size, has creation & modified dates within a couple days (or the same day), and ALL show accessed at the same date & time- matching when I believe the operating system was reinstalled. Under "Attrib" it shows "_d___c" for each, various ID numbers, all have "MftEntry" under "Allocation by" and there is varying info under "Clusters" & "Sectors". They go back about 4 months and stop on the reinstall date.
(Presuming I have to continue with the recovery) Per GetBackData, are deleted files only those that I intentionally deleted? Did the re-installation of the operating system create deleted files?
You're welcome to direct me to GetBackData's tech support if this becomes too time consuming. I'm looking to take this on in the most efficient manor- kinda difficult having never been in this situation before. Overview input would be helpful.
