    ARRRG.........Help me please!!!!!

    I have just re-install Windows XP after a big boot problem.

    In the operation I have lost all my desktop and 1 GO of data files!!!! (I can't have saved those files on another repertory because I can't have run Windows)

    I search a program such as "undelete" to restore erased data files working with NTFS partitions. All programs I have work only on FAT partitions :-[

    Help me please.

    Ummm... Im guessing that you formatted your hard drive when you re-installed... In that case its pretty impossible to undelete the files.... What was your 'Big Boot Problem'?

    Man, you should ALWAYS try to FIXBOOT, FIXMBR, CHKDSH /R, etc. it before reformatting.
    If you have formatted, your deswktop is now somewhere between limbo and eternity

    I have not formated but the Windows installation has erased all elements on the desktop!
    I think elements are phisicaly on the disk but not logicaly.

    For info, the big boot problem was a malfunction of Bootvis (the tracking boot software of Krosoft) --> windows was bugging at all boot (with ALL boot options)

    Quand tu reinstallent Windows XP, il format ton disque dure automatiquement, a moins que tu a un mise a niveau.

    My partitions were in NTFS yet and it has not seemed to change anything on my disk.
    The Windows installation has just erased and re install Windows directory, some elements of C:, and my desktop!

    Your french is excused SSJVegeta-Sei, my english is more awfull than your french and I don't know any other language (except a few spanish). So.... :-;

    well i know a program but it's not free http://www.ontrack.com/easyrecovery/
    but i think that if you do a search on download.com or something like with "data recovery"
    you could something usefull. anyway you could always find a pirated version of easy recovery pro! (recovered 15 gig with it).

    well anyway's it friday and it's time to go back home!
    bye and good week-end!

    Thanks Deadcrow.

    Only a calm person as you can stop my nervous crises and force me to become rational.
    I will try to restore all that can be saved of this disaster. For info, there is a lot of good utils with your search on download.com. I haven't thought there could be such programs in this site!

    Greerings,

    Maybe, Active@ undelete tool will be able to help you. It worked really great for me and I can say it's algorithm is simply perfect. It never failed me, so IMHO it's the best one available.
