RESTORING EXTERNAL USB HARD DISC.

(1/2) > >>

simon christo:
Hi there!!!
I was using a We**tern Dig*** USB HDD, and
just hovering of one of it's Directories, and it
lost it!!! Yep, the Directory disappeared!!
Maybe it was a de-bouncing problem - I
didn't press anything related to modifying
the directory at all.

Anyway, how to I bring the Directory back??
It, find's it - only when I use Search.No way, it will find it, any other way!!

How, do I restore it??

Tah, Simon.

Folders don't just magically vanish unless:
1. The user initiates some kind of action.
2. Software does something with it (anti-virus, malware etc...).
3. There is a fault with the disk and/or file system.

If it's an external NTFS drive, there should be a Recycle Bin folder on the disk (albeit hidden), it might be in there. If it's a flash drive, you're probably out of luck. At this stage if it really has been deleted, you'll need to use some data recovery software to attempt to get it back (like GetDataBack).

It may also simply be hidden, in which case, enable viewing hidden files/folders.

Uunoctium:
You can try out "GetDataBack". If you can see your directory & data with the free test-version, it's necessary to buy the full version to save them. 79$

There was a totally free "Lite" version which looks like it's discontinued now. It did NTFS and basic data recovery only, but might be a good start if you can still find a download of it.

Thanks to all,
Yeah, its still there, but it will only accses it because i remembered the Directory name!! and found it using Search.
Tah, Simon.
