Help deleted wmv files

  ened 17:09 20 May 2009

I have accidentally deleted some video files and run Undelete Plus but it doesn't seem to find video files.

I haven't written anything else to the Hard Drive yet.

Any suggestions or lesson in how to use the programme?files

Good luck.

I assume these files aren't in your Recycle Bin?

If not, try downloading and running Recuva: click here

PS. There is a drop down box at the side of Options, set it to Video

Recuva came up blank.

It offered to do a 'Deep Scan' and said it would take an hour.

But I only set it to look at My Documents instead of the whole drivew and it clsims it is going to take 12 hours.

Sorry about the many typos - I was panicking a bit.

I am going to turn it off now and return tomorrow morning on my wife's.

If anybody can suggest a way of retrieving these films it would be good.

If there is a chance I will not turn it back on in case the files are over written.

Someone on th forum did post a program (quite some tme ago now) which recovered photos which had been deleted from way back - hopefully some one will remember that and perhaps that would recover video too. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

I believe the program can be obtained from the forum member 'Woodchip'

Perhaps he would allow you to email him and, no doubt, he'll respond to this thread.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
