  6. Best ways to recover partition after quick format?

  7. Best ways to recover partition after quick format?

    Man the content on the disk is too important il try anything. Just to be clear the disk didnt have an os on it, it wasnt the primary,but storage. When il get home il run dmde and post results UPDATE: as of now DMDE is running for about an hour (and 2%) now and so far i got these results which seems radical if im not mistaken. UPDATE2: 8 hours after started (9% only...) UPDATE3: 32 hours after started (25% only)
  8. Hey all I really need you help - the thing is iv accidentally performed a quick format on an WD Green 2TB drive with XP pro installation. what i want is to recover the whole complete partition as it was (1 ntfs partition was on the disk) include names/structure and all. as of now i dont have a 2TB space to image the disk, so all the recovery tools should be nondestructive, however i do have 2TB free to recovering to. what do you suggest? plz dont hesitate to suggest anything.
  9. Why Windows Vista (SP1+) is Better Than Windows 7

    Well its not true. UAC have been improved and if you using with standard user its works good. yes vista is stable but in general and not per man specific vista was not stable as 7 they are using smb2 but i did check it and vista was slower access *guest mode is the answer for xp steady state. 14 - i know im using vmware offcourse but it doesnt metter 15 - 7 has good security patches and updates all the time
  10. Why Windows Vista (SP1+) is Better Than Windows 7

    How can someone agree that win Vista is better then the win 7?? It doesnt know what is talking about at all - cause most of the reasons is fighting back is almost the same he ask you to not include in your "list 7 reasons". Here are more then 7 reasons (and just for you to know i had vista sp2 x64 before windows 7 and it was a good os but 7 is better: 1. UAC big improvements 2. Much better HCL - Hardware computability list 3. Better DWM with no lagging 4. Stable during multi tasking 5. SSD Trim and computability 6. Fast start menu search 7. Faster LAN between computers 8. Better FPS in most games 9. Guest mode 10. XP mode 11.Better pricing 12. No memory leaks 13. Windows 7 make the x64 works finally! 14.Better Visualization computability 15.More secured! what do you think?
  11. From what has been reported till now, the filesystem is lacking the $MFT, i.e. it's main file-indexing structure. I doubt that *anything* can recover *any* more fies than what dmde allowed/allows you to. BUT the rules of thumb are: NEVER give up (untill anything reasonably feasible has been attempted) throw at the stoopid filesystem each and every recovery software you can find (or can think of). Two more good candidates: SCROUNGENTFS (freeware): http://thewalter.net/stef/software/scrounge/ FILE SCAVENGER (Commercial - trial available): http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm jaclaz Tnx man il try them and others & update update - man PhotoRec did nice job compare to any other file based iv ever tried - recovered 240GB and to sort them by extension iv found a little tool called PhotoRec_Sorter. its just show me that the data is really there (at least most of the 320GB) witch is good news . so basicly the lack of proper $MFT is whats makes the recovery softs the problem of recover my partition as a whole? man i really wanna get that solved. any ideas will be appriciated. im trying now Restorer ultimate and later SCROUNGENTFS. FILE SCAVENGER didnt do the job for now. Update - it seems like ive managed to fix the MFT & Bootsector using TestDisk witch is good but i dont think the MFT is really been fixed. so what is missing? also im experimenting with VDK - iv installed it and mounted the DD image and tried to run chkdsk but im getting "Windows cannot recover master file table" - iv read that maybe ntfs-3g of partedmagic cd can help - im trying it but i cant find the "fix function" talked by that forum. right now im running SpinRite from VMWare on the mounted dd image by VDK. update - from some reason VMware have an error after 21 percent of Spinrite: "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point" and im getting "Devision overflow" error. maybe i need to re-install vmware or something cause iv upgraded my cpu. Anyway, when im trying to open the partition by TestDisk i still have the "cant open filesystem , filesystem seems damaged" error. and when trying to access the drive by VDK (mounted with dd image) im getting "The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable." what do you think is the next step? im trying to search for a tool that will fix the MFT although TestDisk said it OK.
  12. But I don't think you will get anything meaningful. I thought a bit over the matter and it seems to me like two things are possible: the partition was NTFS formatted using a "strange" program that puts the $MFT in the first (or last) million sectors (and that have then been wiped by the WD tool) the WD tool does something "more" than just wiping the first and last million sectors If the "P" doesn't let you see any file (or no more file than dmde did), the next logical step would be to attempt a file-based recovery (please read as PhotoRec): http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec The "quality and amount" of recovered files can vary greatly with very low percentages for heavily fragmented volumes and high ones for not fragmented ones - but you will have anyway to open each recovered file and re-name it. jaclaz Ya man i cant see any files when pressing P. i thought that PhotoRec is just for pics but im running it now and it see alot more extensions. man i really wanted to recover the whole partition - file based just not going to do the job. what more options do i have? il do anything to recover just tell me what do you think.
  13. OK Il delete the modified ones and run the new fixed commands + try with testdisk command Il update soon Update - i ran the fixed commands and now run the testdisk command witch seems to find lost partiton man: iv chosen the backup to a log file option witch gives me the next window that im not sure what is the proper step: Waiting for your instructions
  14. OK iv downloaded and extracted the fake images and the dsfok. (man 6kb to 976MB thats some super compression ) I guess that after im altering the copy image with the new sectors through dsfi commands i need to mount it with VDK? (well il take step by step and then will talk about vdk ). 1st i need to wait 7 minutes to the copy of the image to be complete. (tnx for all the help man ) Update - the 1st dsfi command is at 175000MB and keep going that was the command: Update - 1st dsfi command completed: Now starting the 2nd dsfi command witch is: 2nd command as completed: P.S - i can see that the fake images as been expanded as the result of those commands (0-512000000 to 298GB & 319558320640-320070320640 to 595.7GB) Waiting for VDK instructions (or the proper next step)
