ImageRecovery

Postby novice » Wed Jan 22, 2014 3:06 pm

Hello all,

In Partition Works I accidentally deleted a storage partition with some image and other files on it.
Using Undelete I was able to recover some files but none of the image files.

Does anyone know how to recover these image files?
Is there good image recovery application available?

Thanks Bernard Boonstra

If you'd have just deleted it, then used "undelete" it would get it back, if
it was the wrong one, delete it with the "clear boot sector" option then
search again to find the next one (once you clear the Boot Sector, the
undelete won't find it). If you overwrote the prior partition (created a
new partition over it, etc..) then undelete from partition work wouldn't
help. You'd need a file level utility.
