Stupid People Should Not Perform Recoveries !!!!
At work one of my colleagues (Who must pray he never has to ask for a reference) accidentally deleted the entire contents of someones
"c:\documents and settings\Username\my documents folder."
He then performed a recovery with some sub standard piece of nonsense to, ......... Yes , you guessed it the original file location over writing any chance I had to perform a proper recovery.
Now we have 16000 files with cluster******.*** as the file names.
The extensions are incorrect as are the file names.
1. I am open to suggestion on other recovery methods for the original directory although even the mighty on-track suite doesn't see it as a deleted dir.
2. Any idea of any program that will auto associate the files correctly ?
3. Anyone prepared to kill this employee would be greatly rewarded.
