    Folder Recovery

    Is it possible to recover a folder and contents that was deleted using Windows Explorer? The folder never made it to the Recycle Bin and can't be restored that way.

    Thanks,
    John

    Try Undelete from the makers of Diskeeper.

    I trust it wasn't a folder on a networked drive . . .

    Leif,

    Lucky for me it was on my client. By the time I realized what I did it was too late.

    Thanks,
    John

    Re: Folder Recovery

    Do you know of a freeware product that I can use. I have a file that I believe used to be in the C:winntcsc folder that I deleted and now can figure a way to recover. I don't want to pay for program that I won't use but once or twice and I'm not even sure that the file is recoverable to begin with. Although I have not used the laptop since the day I discovered the deletion, the physical data may still have been overwritten when I did a sync with the network.

    Thanks,

    -Drew

    Drew, check out the utilities at http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/utilities.shtml and see if one meets your needs. You could well be in a bind on this one, unless you are comfortable using a low-level disk editor, which I believe ships with the Windows 2000 Resource Kit (not free by any stretch of the imagination).
