    The topic is about how to recover data, the fact that it's his music collection is incidental. It could be Gbs of porn, it doesn't matter. The thread is about helping him recover data, whatever that may be is of none of our business.

    Either help him out, or get out of the thread.

    For one, your talking to a former moderator of the site.

    Two, he knows the rules because of number one.

    Three, I agree with Darknova, he is asking for help in recovering lost data. NOT asking how to illegally download shit off the internet. Big difference. Whats on his hard drive is of no ones concern but his. So instead of trying to pin him for copyright infringement, please help the guy. Otherwise, i politely ask you to cease posting.

    Edit: And Four, he's been here longer than you. :p

    i try to impress people everyday am i doig a good job? i own the disks so i dont see how im "breaching" anything. Tell me did it ever occure to you. that i may own them? i mean surely you must have seen some of my posts correcting people on what cant be posted and i was a mod so i thinki i got the rules all right. So do you actually think that someone who HAD to adhere to the rules to be staff and someone who often corrects or warn people on what can and cannot be posted would seriously start a thread asking people if they could help him recover pirated music? Do you honestly think i would risk that? Do you honestly think i could slip up that much? the only reason im "on a roll" is because im absolutely dumbfounded that you could seriously thiink that i am soliciting help to get my GB's of "pirated" music back. Tell me is this how you get your thanks? Do you go from thread to thread and try to call people out and raise a good point so someone recocnizes you? nvm youll say no dont feel obligated to answer that wrong..because even if it were the case you just failed. Im not arguing with you i simply want to know. I just think that its rediculous that you jump to conclusions. i dont need to read any of your posts 11 or any other in this thread for that matter because honestly im quite offended that you would think id do such a thing. and id like to politely add that if you have nothing in the wa of helpfull posts pertaining to this subject if you could not post in this thread thank you END OF DISCUSSION.

    "former" being the key word. I have to agree though, Solaris you were out of line.

    That being said, back to pr0n errr data recovery.

    Wow. What a performance!

    Like I said, go back to my post #11. I made some suggestions to help Soliris out... from recovery software that worked for me.

    There seems to be a lot of aggressive, defensive, ganging up and verbal abuse. I do find the "He's been here longer than you", "he's connected to the mod world", and "my brother is bigger than yours" quite entertaining though! LOL

    *edit* oophs, late post. Teach came in a fixed it. Thanks. Sorry.

    good tpu is supposed to be a plesent experiance full of laughs fun and quality entertainment as well as informative information to help you get on your way thank you for contributing to the community we all hope you enjoy your stay at TPU as for connections with mods my personal relationships with them ar absolutely non of your buisiness and "connections" is a loose term im not part of the mod/mob squad if you want muscle talk to dan or kreji you have to understand i do not have a personal problem with you but accusing someone of copyright infringment isnt somehting you should go around doing. i dont have a car and i dont live with my gram and the reasons for such arent any kind of public matter and though i dont feel i should defend myself in anyway to you i just thought you should know so you have a better understanding of the situation if i can buy $3k in computer parts every 2 months i think i can afford a cd once in awhile.

    Let's all relax, and have a big ol' love-in. This way there will be no more bad comments directed at one another and some progress with the problem at hand can be worked out. *Hugs & kisses* everyone.

    A while back I lost a load of stuff from my HDD I found the biggest problem was finding free utilities that actually helped the situation rather than me downloading, installing, running programs, having them tell me "We can recover x,xxx of your files. If you pay us." :mad:

    Anyway in the end I stumbled over this freeware app that works pretty well:
    http://www.snapfiles.com/get/restoration.html

    No installation required - download, extract from the archive, open the app and click "Search Deleted Files". A few mins later, pick the ones you want and it'll save them to a folder someplace for you :toast:

    I had that, it's ok, but it's crap for large amounts of data.

    I agree with you on everything but the $3k in computer parts.......

    I don't even think you have $3K in computer parts a year....

    I am not trying to insult you, I am just thinking that statement was kind of inaccurate.:toast:

    Nevertheless. My point was that he knows the rules. I never said he is a mod nor insinuated anything towards it.

    I felt that needed to be said so back to being on topic.

    Those are "false finds". Which tool found those? Try a different utility. Remember the software is doing a lot of guesswork to piece back a lost partition table/file directory. A different utility might find different stuff. Whatever happens, dont perform any "writes" on that disk until you are 100% over with recovery attempts.

    Re post#11

    r-studio (recovery studio)
    EASEUS Data Recovery

    are the best, but not free. However, their demo mode may help you see that other files are there to be found. Worth seeing if the demo versions can find anything. If not, game over.

    Getdataback is the best recovery program I've used. I've recovered pretty much everything from corrupted to the extreme hard drives. It can take some time especially if your data becomes fragmented and the file names are lost, but it's well worth it.

    Good to hear that you've recovered all data.

    Btw i've a problem with one of my HDD seems that i didn't plug the ata cable completely in and is not recognized anymore;the MFT is gone but the data still there.

    Can you name exactly which program have you used because i've already tried a few and the pc is rebooting during scan .

    Thakns
