Hello, I'm new to forum and to Bleeping Comp. So an IT pal of mine told me to try JRT due to some issues I was having on my machine...Win 7 Pro 64 bit.

 

 After running JRT....that made changes and now I have some (to me ) severe issues. 

I lost about 3,000 library items when it deleted the Chief Architect Data file rendering my hundreds of cad files useless.

Also I'm not able to "Restore" the computer to an earlier date...tried 3 different dates only to get a message , Restore was unsucessfull from all 3 dates prior to running JRT.

Is there a place it puts these deleted files that I can perhaps restore them from. (it's not the recycle bin)

 

Following is the log file JRT created....

~~ Services

~~~ Registry Values

~~~ Registry Keys

Successfully deleted: [Registry Key] "hkey_current_user\software\apn pip"

~~~ Files

~~~ Folders

Successfully deleted: [Folder] C:\ProgramData\Chief Architect Premier X6


~~~ FireFox

Emptied folder: C:\Users\doug\AppData\Roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles\g7ohuny3.default\minidumps [41 files]

 

~~~ Event Viewer Logs were cleared

Firstly, do not write anything to the hard drive. The more you write to the drive, the less chance there is for recovery. I would remove the drive if possible and put it in an external enclosure or attach to a USB adapter. On another computer download Recuva. Do a scan on the drive that deleted Chief Architect. Hopefully it finds the folder and files intact. Copy the files to the internal drive of the computer, not back to the drive the folder was deleted from or you will never recover it.

 

If Recuva does not work use Easeus Data Recovery to do a scan of the drive.

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

JRT is a non-interactive batch program that automatically removes whatever it finds...there are no options to skip or ignore detections and no option to backup/restore removed items.

Since JRT is essentially a batch file, it extracts to a temporary folder and does NOT create backups of what was removed but it does backup the registry so you can use System Restore if restore points are available.
