We need more info, please.

 

System manufacturer and model?

 

Why were you trying to restore a deleted folder?

 

When did problems start?  What were circumstances leading up to your situation?

 

Louis

Hi thanks. My system is a Lenovo y450 and it runs on Windows 7. This problems has been going on for about 6 months. Now,I was cleaning up and saving important files to an external drive. I erased my music folder that was on my desktop screen thinking that is was a shortcut. I went to open my music folder and all of my music is gone and is not in the recycle bin. As I was trying to restore it with recuva software it gave me the message of being blocked by group policy. Anything I try to do will give me the same message. I do not have internet so it is difficult to download anything,plus I am trying to avoid downloading so the music folder I want to restore will not be overwritten.i cannot define when or what I did when this problem started. I heard I need to delete some keys and followed the instructions but when it is time to delete it tells me I don't have permission and it is blocked by group policy.

Is this PC on a corporate network? If so then you need to contact the admin because recuva runs in the TMP directory from memory and if the rules are correct then running .exe files or certain file types from there will not work.

This is why you could the error.

Install recuva (I think you can just extract the zip file and run the software from a location other than temp) and then run it.

Try doing a System Restore, use a restore point dated prior to the deletion of the folder contents.  This is the quickest and easiest way.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Restoring your installed Windows with System Restore tool will not restore deleted files. Previous Versions is an incredibly useful feature built into Windows 7 but not all versions of Windows 7 you can right click any folder and restore previous versions of of that folders content from folder properties. The ShadowExplorer allows you to browse the Shadow Copies of C: partition content created by the Windows Vista / 7 / 8 and Windows 10 Volume Shadow Copy Service. It's especially thought for users of the home editions, who don't have access to the shadow copies by default, but it's also useful for users of the other editions.
