files gone from external hdd
I only posted this in here as it relates to a personal hdd nothing work related.
I have a 1tb external usb drive which i had two folders on, work and home. home had loads of holiday photos, letters etc. work had backups of things i wanted, layouts, ad policies, etc.
up until yesterday all was fine, but i noticed yesterday the home folder had gone. i've run a couple of free file recovery progs which appear to recover a few docs, but not all. i didn't delete the home folder, so assume it has been lost by me unplugging it unsafely :o
are there any progs that could successfully scan and recover these? the programs ive tried show some docs saying "overwritten by i:\home\xxxxxx" but i:\home doesn't exist. i haven't written or deleted anything from it since in the hope that it wont overwrite anything on there.
