Irretrievable Files

Posted by Alei at 1/18/2009

Does this ever happen to you? At times my fingers work faster than my mind. As I was sprucing up my files saved in my USB, I accidentally deleted a folder containing important files. It was too late when I clicked “cancel” button. Dang it! Nothing was left but the empty folder. In most cases, deleted files can be restored through the recycle bin. However, files in the USB are not sent in the recycle bin. What a misfortune. Mind over matter, I composed myself, searched the Internet for possible ways to retrieve my files. I have downloaded two programs namely Fast File Undelete and Smart Undelete. Both scans the system and shows the list of files deleted and creates information regarding the files’ status. I almost jump to my feet when I saw the filenames of my deleted files. But, to my surprise and dismay, it cannot be retrieved without purchasing the software. I was hopeless, I just have to charge it to experience.

A lesson learned, not all things can be undone. It should live by these healthy computer habits:
  • Back up my important files to avoid instances like this
  • Control my impulsive-clicking-finger every time I execute an action
  • And lastly, double selected check files before deleting

Some time ago I wrote a tutorial on recovering deleted files. It should work for USB sticks too.

Use RecoverMyFiles, of course you have to buy it but try using ShareMiner.com in searching it and you'll surely find a full version of it, just for a try. After you recover you files you can decide about buying it or uninstalling it (but at least you have recovered your files). Even if you reformat your drive it is still possible to recover old deleted files :)
