Hi! I am brand new to this site so please bear with me in posting. I have an OLD computer and I am
running XP3 home. Today like an idiot I deleted a bunch of files with some cleanup program. So Dumb!
Some of them were in the recycle bin so I was able to restore them because it does it for you. About 50 of them are on my desktop, the rest have been found by the program Advanced System Care 9, Undelete. For the ones that are in that program it is asking me to select a directory to store the files when they are recovered?? Anyway I am ready to use SFC /scannow. The problem is in the middle of the program you need to put in your windows install disc. I am running XP3 but the disk that came with
this computer is XP2 so the program to restore files (sfc/scannow) won't except the XP2 disc.
I tried using system restore but it won't restore to ann earlier date because I guess I have deleted or corrupted some of the files. Won't work in safe mode either. I downloaded a recovery program but
you cannot run the program on the same drive that you need to restore files to. This machine only
has 1 drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am not dumb about computers, but there are some things I have always been confused about like file paths, and what file path to restore etc,.
Thank you for hearing me, and hopefully helping me!
