I'm a Primary School Deputy Head & I have the task of checking School Reports before they go to parents. I've been checking one teacher's reports saved on a floppy disk. It worked OK last week but since I made changes to the data it will not now open!! There are several reports on it. Have I lost them all? Is it possible to check on the computer and see if the data is there? I didn't save it to my hard drive!!
Hi cherie. If you didn't save the files to your hard drive at any time, it is unlikely that you can recover them from your computer. Have you looked at the floppy disk in Windows Explorer to see if there are any recoverable files on it. If there aren't, you might be able to recover the disk using a data recovery tool. Try downloading a free trial of Ontrack easyrecoverylite to see if the files are recoverable. click here
Thanks for the various bits of advice. The main problem with recovery is that the computer(Win XP) does not recognise that there is a disk in the drive so recovery progs. will not be able to see the files!! I'll try the hard drive to see if it has kept any of the files but I'm not very hopeful!!
Just had a quick look on google..found this click here, other than that I can only suggest you ring the teacher and pray they have copies...I never rely on floppies as they are so volatile..hopefully one of the guru's will be along with a brighter suggestion...sorry I can't be of more help.
