I did a system recovery. I thought that I had back up every, but some of the files were lost. Is there a way to recovery those lost files. The recycle bin is empty. I run windows XP

Hi jeff522,

You can try PC INSPECTOR and see if it helps.

Queston..... how do you use PC Inspector file recovery. I want to recover the My Documents files from the the hard drive. I have down loaded the File Recovery from PC Inspector, and I tried to use it. I just can not figure it out. When it comes to computers I am lost. Thanks in advance

I have actually yet to used it before so I'm not too sure about it.

Or you could try another File Recovery software, maybe that is more user-friendly.

Hi Nikas,
when I get to step 3 where i need to tell it where to download the files i have a problem. i use the browse function to bring up my F drive, a cd burner. on the cd i have placed a folder and named it pics. F:\ is selected and after it i type pics... F:\pics is what i have and i hit scan and a window comes up saying incorrect folder name. so to answer your queston i think it will help if i can just get it to work. i am really not a moron, but i feel like one when ever it involves a computer

Nikas,
yes i guess i was not to clear. i go through the scan wizzard and when i need to tell it where to send the recovered files i have the problem. i chose the cd writer so not to over write files that i was trying to recover, using the browser function i select the cd writer, the F drive. the cd has an open file to recieve the data, file name pics. following the F:\ i type pics, but it comes up incorrect folder name. i stuck. thanks for your time.

Could you try to save it to a location in your Harddisk? That would probably save you your problem. For example, create a folder in C:\, name it Recover Files.

Then choose the save recovered files location to C:\Recover Files\ folder and see how it goes.

That's great isn't it.. You finally got back your stuff.

After you have got back your pictures in your harddrive, you then can try to burn it to your CD. It should works.
