"Deleting" a file does not actually delete it marks just the space
also available to be used. There are third-party programs that can
sometimes recover deleted files. The problem is that the space used by
the file is likely to be replaced very quickly, and it makes
the unrecoverable file.

So your chances of successfully recover this file are decent if you
Try it again immediately after the deletion of it and go quickly
downhill from there. If you have used the computer since then (for
example to write this question and read this answer), your chances may
be very poor now.

But if the file is large enough, it's still worth a try. Stop
using the computer in question immediately, if you have not done
already. Download an undelete program (and here's one:)
http://www3.TELUS.NET/mikebike/restoration.html but there are several
others to choose from; Do a search) on a friend's computer (do not
it on yours because that would overwrite the files you want
Undelete) and bring it to you on a CD or thumb drive to try.

If that fails, your only recourse is to bring or send the disc
a company of professional file recovery. This kind of service is very
expensive and may or may not work in your case.

  • Windows xp, I deleted a user and now I lost the files; How can I get it back?

    I got 2 user accounts. However, never used the 2nd - or so I thought - so I removed it.  When I deleted this user, the file with the same name on the other account also disappeared!  I tried restoring and that did not work.  I knew that one of the names in the file deleted from an excel file and done a search that search in hidden files - nothing.  Help please (Yes that I should have backed up before I deleted - I saved the office but not this file.  sigh:(Merci pour votre aide)

    Hi christinecarrington,

    You can use any third-party application to recover data lost by using your favorite search engine.

    Note: Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    I am using the Windows 7 operating system but since this morning I am not able to copy paste any file from the laptop external drives, nor able to delete files from external hard drives / flash drives. But I can easily copy paste any file internally to laptop readers.

    Error returned is "requirement authority administrator to perform this task". Have two users for my operating system.

  • The Vixia HF G30 allows a direct copy of video files from an SD card on an external USB hard disk

    I am considering buying a G30 and need to know if she will allow a direct copy of video files from an SD card on an external USB hard drive.  The manual is not clear on this point.

    Not to my knowledge (I own a G30 HF).  There is no present on-the-go USB functionality.

    Personally, I do not miss such a feature, because it causes all kinds of compatibility problems, especially with regard to the power of external USB hard drives. In addition, without any file manager, backup of your video files into a nightmare. I must admit that I am rather Cannon after not on an often incomplete function development budget and have it spent instead on the main features of the camera, such as optics. Of course, this is just my very subjective opinion, and other HF G30 clients may have different opinions on this.

    In order to back up my video files on the fly and without having to carry a laptop, I recently bought a made by Hanso Hyperdrive colorspace UDMA2 and installed a 1 TB in her drive. When on the ground and after having taken my shots I just pop in my inside SD cards and the device of copies on the video files to 17Mbyte per second. At home, I plug in the UDMA2 in my Linux video workstation using a regular USB cable and pull the video from the mobile disk. The UDMA2 also did incremental backups and comes with a basic file manager. While it has a color screen, it can't play back video. It is a video and photo backup dedicated device, nothing more. But it does a decent job on exactly that.

    3 did you changes to the computer before the show?

    4. What are the names of files and the exact location of the files you are trying to copy?

  • How to recover files from my hard drive?

    I tried to upgrade windows 8.1 to 10, but something was wrong and I can't boot my laptop more. I have Samsung i5. Samsung has it s own recovery program, but impossible to locate all personal files from my hard drive (C:\user) s.

    The problem is - my accont is protected by word (with the microsoft account) how can I recover my files? They are also protected by Word? Can I access simply by making the copy of disc or I´ll to decrypt?

    It depends on if you have encryption enabled or not.  If you have the encryption on, then you will need a copy of your encryption key or the files will be locked forever.

    If you encrypt your files, you can recover the files simply by putting the hard drive on another computer and navigate on it as if it were a USB key (it's just a reader), you can even appropriating and re - set the permissions on the folder.

    Another option is to start by using any Windows install CD or USB.  At the prompt to install, skip it and press SHIFT + F10 to open a command prompt.  So to reach this player (the letter can be no C: in this mode) and use the command copy to copy the file to another disk or USB stick.

    As I was deleting some files from my hard drive, I came across some files that I couldn't remove with a message saying remove wite protection. Help!

    This error indicates that an application is using this file at this point here. If you are unable to remove it, restart your computer and then try to delete it.

    IF YOU ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL WITH THE above METHOD, THEN TRY to USE UNLOCKER, a free application that disables the application using the file that you want to delete.
    Download unlocker from here-http://www.filehippo.com/download_unlocker/
    Click on the above link and click on download the newer version on the right side of the screen.
    Download UNLOCKER from the link given above and install it. (you may need to restart the computer)
    Right-click on the file you want to delete, and then click unlocker.
    A new window opens showing all applications using this file.
    Select all files, and then click on unblock.
    Now right-click on the file you want to delete, and then click on remove.
    YOUR FILE WILL BE DELETED SUCCESSFULLY.
    If you are still unable to delete that file and unlocker shows no application, then follow these steps-
    Right-click on the file you want to delete and click unlocker.
    A small window will appear.
    In the drop-down list, choose delete, and then click ok.
    Your file will be deleted on the next reboot of the system.

    Hello

    Files that cannot be copied are in bad clusters.

    Try running chkdsk x:/b

    The /B switch will cause the disk check to reassess the bad clusters and try to fix them again.

    Let us know the results.

  • I can't download files from my Google Drive folder. Everytime I try I get the message "page isn't redirecting properly...» »

    It is a new installation of Firefox. Everything works OK in Chrome or Internet EXPLORER. I deleted the google cookies and drive.google cookies, but without success.
    I've followed these tips:
    "You can set the network.cookie.thirdparty.sessionOnly pref Boolean true on the subject: config page to have third-party cookies act as session cookies." Without success.
    I checked this:
    Network.http.sendRefererHeader - it is set to 2 (the default)

    If the deletion of cookies did not help, then it is possible that the cookies.sqlite file that stores the cookies has been corrupted.

    • Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete the other files of cookies as cookies.sqlite - journal in the profile folder of Firefox in the case where the cookies.sqlite file has been corrupted.

    You can control and manage permissions for the domain in the tab currently selected through these steps:

    • Click the address bar onthe Site identity button"(globe/lock)
    • Click on 'More information' to open ' tools > Page Info "with the Security tab is selected
    • Go to the permissions tab (Tools > Page Info > permissions) to check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab

    You can delete all data stored in Firefox with a specific area through "Forget this Site" in the context menu of a history entry ("" history > view history "or" view > sidebar > History "") or via the subject: permissions page.

    Using "Forget this Site" will delete all data stored in Firefox in this area as bookmarks, cookies, words of past, cache, history, and exceptions, so be careful and if you have a password or other data from that domain you don't want to lose then check that back up these data or make a comment.

    You can't recover from this "forget" unless you have a backup of the files involved.

    It has no lasting effect, so if come back you on such a 'forgotten' site, then the data of this Web site will be saved once more.

  • I have problem with Muse files when you work at home with my laptop and when I open the files again in my work with my IMac.

    I have problem with Muse files when you work at home with my laptop and when I open the files again in my work with my IMac.

    I do: when I am uncomfortable with the laptop I save the files on the laptop, then on my external hard drive. Then, when I'm at work, I opened the drive, but the Muse says every time, that so many links in the 'active' is missing. And it takes a lot of time to get all the missing link. Like today I had to open a file of Muse from the external hard drive, and there are about 100 links that are missing.

    How can I solve this problem

    the best thing if you are a user of creative cloud is to store the files in a folder in your account of cloud instead of transferring the files from one computer to another.

    If you are not a Subscriber cc then Dropbox or iCloud will work as well.
