I don't think there is anything you can do with software on your PC to undo that. :thumbsup:
A specialist data recovery company could probably retrieve your files but they'd charge you a lot of money to do it.

Sorry. :flowers:

Except for a more effective job, this is what wiping a drive does. You just over wrote most of your D:\ drive. You may be able to recover bits and pieces, but it would be expensive and incomplete.

I had a similar problem once that caused me to price data recovery for this sort of thing. It started at $600 US and went up to at least $1800 US - and this was without them knowing much of what happened to my drive.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

There was a member here recently who was quoted US$2500 for what looked like (according to the recovery companies report) an electronics problem on the drive. :thumbsup:

Clone would be an exact copy (source to destination) of the drive using Ghost or Acronis.
