    Can a font be retrieved?

    Hi Loungers - hoping you can help again! I have just cleaned up my old PC ready to transfer stuff to my new one, and seem to have lost a font in the process - only the one I use for my business cards and letterheads!!! Cannot find on the net (its called 'Skizze DB' which looks like it might be German for font due to all the sites that appear on a search) so now I am left with trying to retrieve it from the disk.

    Worse still, I ran a cleanup and defrag after all the changes, so have I ruined my chances?

    Any suggestions gratefully appreciated as ever....

    Re: Can a font be retrieved?

    What I think you are asking is if you can recover a deleted file. The answer to that is if the space that was originally used by the file(s) has been over-written then no, and the chances of recovery, especially after a defrag, are slim.

    Check <post:=534,475>post 534,475</post:> for a possible solution - there is some recovery software mentioned in the thread.

    Hi raineb

    If you can post a graphic clip of your business card or letterhead, perhaps someone might recognize it under a different name or know of one similar enough for your purpose.

    Have a Great day!!!

    From what I can gather Skizze is German for "sketch". Are you certain that this is the name of the font ?? As Ken stated, an example might help.

    Do you know where you had stored the font on the old system ?? It may well be in the fonts folder under a name different than the one you are accustomed to seeing in your word processor's fonts list.

    Re: Can a font be retrieved?

    First thx to everyone for prompt replies...

    I think the font got installed with a program that I have now deleted (and with this cleanup I deleted loads!). My question was really twofold - if I could undelete easily, great, otherwise does anyone recognise the font? I attach a sample so you can see as suggested....

    Re: Can a font be retrieved?

    I believe that your font is Letraset Squire (~Scribe). I found it in the Corel Mega Gallery manual.
    Hope this is helpful.

    I have to agree with Jack. Take a look here to sample the Squire LET font.
