    Restoration -how to read the results

    Hello -

    I've run this program and under Names, the files it has found have mainly numbers next to them. The extreme-most column is File No. How does one identify these files by name, or find the number that applies to a particlar file?

    I couldn't find anything on the Net to give guidance on this................

    Thank you.

    (Windows XP, SP 2; Word 2002)

    Sorry, Al -

    Restoration, pubilshed by Brian Kato. I believe I have read about it on the Lounge. Please don't spend your time on this if you're not familiar with it.

    Have a good evening,

    Curious

    Well, although I'm not familiar, hang in there. Maybe with your clarification some other Lounger will be able to help you...

    Restoration download and review SnapFiles shows a "typical" result:

    <IMG SRC=http://8.10.179.164/screenfiles/restoration.gif>

    How is yours "different"? What did you use as the search criteria? Can you identify any of the restored files as familiar names?

    Re: Restoration -how to read the results

    While waiting for you to return, I have a couple of things. For Alan, the screenshot they have on their web isn't there and I couldn't find the graphic. So, I figured what the heck and downloaded it for a try. I've got to be truthful Curious, I don't care for the program. It starts with the inability to adjust the size of the window and goes on from there. If you're looking for something free to keep in your toolbag, try this one: PC INSPECTOR smart recovery. I've used it a number of times with success. You just have to remember that ANYTHING done to a drive after a file is deleted is liable to make that file unrecoverable. There is another that I used for some time back when I ran Win98 and it's NOT free, as a matter of fact pretty expensive for the XP version, but it's here: Undeleting files under Windows XP/2000/NT/Me/98/95.

    Anyway, when I run Restoration on my C: drive, the majority of the files I see with "numbers" are from my Firefox Cache folder. One of the things I don't like about the program and the window sizing limitation is that you have to do some size dragging on the folder field just to see enough of the name to know where the file was located. So, if you drag the title bar of that field to the right, does it help you identify any of your questionable files?

    !aeh!

    Thanks for your time and reply, Alan.

    My screen looks pretty much like that (including the greyed-out maximize button). My problem is that I don't know which files the numbers refer to.

    P.S.
    I had tried to attach a screen shot, but was told the file was too big..................

    Al -

    Thanks for your investigation. I, too, had noted the limitations (size, dragging) but thought if there was a way to match up files numbers with file names, it might be worth pursuing.

    Your points are well taken.

    Al

    The screenshot came from clicking the small graphic on the page I linked to. I second your PC INSPECTOR smart recovery recommendation. It might be worth looking at Drive Rescue v1.9d, also <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware.

    Get yourself a good defrag program, Perfect Disk is likely best.
    The program allows you to enter the File ID to determine the file path.
