File Recovery From Inaccessible NTFS File System Partition
Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Boot volume damage is a very critical situation that may prevent your Windows computer from being started and may cause volume and file loss. In such situations, to get your vital data back, you need to opt for File Recovery.

When you start your Windows computer whose boot or system volume is corruption, you might encounter the following error message (where second parameter is 0xC0000032 DISK_CORRUPTION_ERROR):

"Stop 0x0000007B (0x00000000, 0xC0000032, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

If you attempt to install Microsoft Windows 2000 on damage NTFS (New Technology File System) volume, you might come across the following error message:

"Windows 2000 recognizes the partition you selected, but the partition is unformatted or damaged. To install Windows 2000 on this partition, setup must reformat it."

When you start Windows 2000 Recovery Console and use "dir" command to view and access the contents of volume, following error message may occur:

"Directory of F:

An error occurred during directory enumeration."

If you run CHKDSK utility against damaged volume, the process completes with no errors and corrections. However, you can not access data or boot system from volume and receive error message.

Root of this behavior

This problem takes place because NTFS volume has a damage or invalid record in either the $LogFile file or the $UsnJrnl file. Both these files are system files that used only by NTFS file system and CHKDSK doesn't check the integrity of these files. Only MFT (Master File Table) is checked by CHKDSK for the valid entries of these files.


There are three possible methods to fix this problem:
1. Use Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Microsoft Windows XP Recovery console to repair $UsnJrnl file.

2. Use Fsutil.exe utility from Windows XP Boot CD to remove Change/USN journal.

3. Attach damaged drive to another computer which is running Windows 2000 to repair it.

If none of the above methods work, use File Recovery Software to thoroughly scan your Windows drive and extract all of the data from it. These software work in the majority of data loss situations and perform safe, quick and easy recovery.

File Recovery Software has interactive user interface with rich graphical support and thus do not require sound technical skills. These software can recover every type of files including Office files, music files, images, videos and application files.

My File Recovery Software Worked!
Monday, January 25, 2010

File recovery (or 'unerase' software) is the one software tool that you purchase, hoping that you're never going to need it, but when the time comes, you want to know that it's going to work!

Most of the time, when you delete a file accidentally, you can open the recycle bin and 'restore' it without any trouble, but this isn't always the case.

* Sometime deletions by-pass the recycle bin, such as when the files you delete are on a memory stick.
* Sometimes files are too large to be held in the recycle bin and a permanent deletion is the only option.
* Sometimes the file you've lost was deleted some time ago and the recycle bin as already 'emptied' itself.

When this sort of thing happens you have two choices:

1. Cry like a baby
2. Get hold of some good File Recovery Software

File Recovery Software is something like fire insurance. It's something you hope you're never going to have to use. Unlike insurance on your house though it's something that ALL OF US do need, sooner or later!

This was not the first time I'd needed to recover permanently deleted files but it certainly was the most critical. I'd just returned from Canberra, having interviewed the former President of Iran about building bridges between Christians and Muslims, and I was very pleased that he'd allowed me to record our time together on video. I was less pleased when my wife (nine months pregnant and not fully compus mentus) accidentally erased my interview from the video camera before I had downloaded it!

Now, as I mentioned, this wasn't the first time I'd needed to recover files that had been accidentally erased, but my experience with software designed to 'unerase' files is that it can be a bit of a hit and miss affair.

When a file is deleted, it isn't normally wiped from the disk but rather renamed so that the operating system registers it as something that can be written over. If there's no activity at all on the disk after the file has been deleted there's every chance that the file is still fully intact - byte for byte - BUT if there is further disk activity, there's every chance that the file you're looking to recover (or a part of it) will be over-written!

In the case of my file, which was on a memory stick , I was particularly concerned as:

* It was a large file (about a gigabyte) that took up around half the storage area, which meant that further disk activity would almost certainly have written over some of it.
* If some of the file was written over, it might not just make the video shorter, but corrupt the file completely, making it unreadable.
* I wasn't at all sure whether my file recovery software worked on the memory sticks used in digital cameras. I had only used it on my harddisk.

My concerns were valid, but my file recovery software came through, and I was able to recover about 60% of the file!

Then came the hard work:

* Unhappily, neither Windows Media Player nor Camtasia nor any of my other video production software could read the AVI file, due, I assume to file corruption. Happily though Apple Quicktime could!
* Unhappily though, the free version of Quicktime, won't save an AVI file in any other format but, happily, it only cost $50 to upgrade to Quicktime Pro, which I did, and successfully saved the file in QuickTime (MOV) format!
* Unhappily though, Quicktime didn't seem to be able to save the file to any other format and I wanted to edit the video in Camtasia, and my version of Camtasia would not work with MOV files, but, happily, the latest version of Camtasia did import MOV files, so ... $150USD later I had the latest version of Camtasia installed and ... I got the job done.

In short, using my unerase software didn't in itself solve all of the problems, but it did get me off to an excellent start, and if I'd got to the disk earlier, I'm sure I would have been able to recover 100% of the file without any dramas or extra costs.

So the moral of the story is to keep an unerase program in your virtual back pocket. It's not the sort of thing you want to spend hours of disk-thrashing activity looking for if you've accidentally erased a critical file. Have one on hand!

Anyway, I'm not just going to give you the advice. I want to give you the software!

So grab the software while you can, and if you're very, very lucky, you'll never need to use it. Chances are though that your time will come, and when it does, you'll be very glad you were prepared.

Windows File Recovery After User Profile Corruption
Thursday, January 21, 2010

The MS Windows user profile explains Windows configuration for specific user which includes environment and preferences settings of user. User profile contains applications and customization for specific user. When this profile gets corrupted, you can not log into your account and can not access files and data from it. This situation may cause file loss and you are required to opt for File Recovery solutions to resolve this behavior.

The Windows user profile allows you to have a personalized desktop environment. But sometimes this profile gets corrupted and you can not access your system. When you attempt to log on to Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, you might encounter the following error message:

"Windows cannot load your profile because it may be corrupted. You may be logged in using a temporary User Profile."

This behavior of Microsoft Windows XP renders all your vital files inaccessible and cause critical file loss situations. At this point of time, you need to observe the root cause of the issue and perform File Recovery by sorting out this problem.

Root of the issue

As stated in the above error message, this problem takes place due to corruption to the user profile. Due to the same, Windows can not verify your account and thus does not let your log on to it.


You can sort out this issue by creating a new user profile. To do so, you need to delete the existing user profile.
Before deleting the user profile and creating a new one, you should always backup all of your critical data. When you move to new profile, Windows may let your log into the system but your critical files, applications and configuration will be missing. After creating a new profile, you can easily restore data from backup.

If you mistakenly delete the old user profile without backing up the data, you may come across critical file loss situations. To recover your significant file in such cases, through scanning of entire hard drive using File Recovery Software is required.

These are third party applications which perform Deleted File Recovery in most of the file loss situations. With simple and interactive graphical user interface, these software are fairly easy to use. Due to read-only and non-destructive design, they always carry out safe and original recovery of your business critical files.

Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery is an advanced and dominant tool that can recover lost files from all FAT16, FAT32, VFAT, NTFS and NTFS5 file system partitions. This software is compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista, 2003, XP and 2000. It also recovers deleted Outlook and Outlook Express emails.

Deleted File Recovery Made Simple
Saturday, January 16, 2010

If you've accidentally deleted a file you need, there is hope. While it used to be that deleted file recovery could cost you several hundred dollars, there is a simple new and inexpensive way you can bring those deleted files back to life.

When you delete a file from your hard drive, it first does to the recycle bin and then once you go ahead and empty the recycle bin, the file is permanently removed. Or is it?
Actually, what happens when you empty the recycle bin is that Windows then marks the physical space on the hard drive that those files occupied as ready to be overwritten and removes all references to the files so that when you do a search for any of them, they are nowhere to be found.
However, seeing as Windows only marked the hard drive space as ready to be overwritten, the files still physically exist until that actually takes place, which can happen at any time.
So what you need is a program that can look outside of Windows and examine the physical hard drive in order to determine if any files exist that Windows has removed all references to and there is software that exists that can do that for you called, ironically, data recovery software.
Once the software has examined the physical hard drive and returned a list back to you with files that are recoverable, all you have to do is click next to the files that you would like to recover and tell the software what folder to recover it to and literally within a few minutes those files will be brought back to life.
The process is extremely simple and only requires a few clicks of the mouse while you sit back and let the software do all the work.
So if you've accidentally removed a file from your computer that you actually need, don't fret as you can perform a deleted file recover easily with data recovery software - just make you act quickly before those files have a chance to be physically overwritten.

Deleted File Recovery Made Easy - Recover Deleted Files With a Few Simple Mouse Clicks
Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Deleted file recovery used to be a painful and expensive task where you had to either send out your hard drive to a data recovery company or hire a technical consultant to come to your home or office to do the job - both of which are extremely expensive. Thankfully, however there are now software tools that make deleted file recovery a whole lot easier and it can be done with a few simple mouse clicks.

Contrary to what most people are led to believe, when you delete a file from your computer, meaning you either hit shift + delete or deleted it from the recycle bin, it doesn't get physically removed from your hard drive - at least not right away.

What actually happens is that the physical space on the hard drive that the file is written on gets marked by Windows as OK to be overwritten and all references to the file from within Windows are removed - so in essence the file is deleted from Windows but still remains on your hard drive until such time as additional data overwrites that particular space.

However, that's the huge unknown. There is no way for you to know exactly when that space will be overwritten so time is of the essence. If you are looking to recover a deleted file, and it is truly something you really need then you'll need to take immediate action to get that file back.

Fortunately, with the introduction of data recovery software, you can actually recover lost and deleted files literally within minutes.

The software will scan your entire hard drive and then compare what it finds against what Windows believes exists to return to you a list of files that can be recovered.

At this point if the file you are looking for is listed, meaning it hasn't been overwritten by other data, you simply choose to recover that file and tell the software that folder you want to restore it to and voila - your file is instantly recovered!

The best part of all this is that the entire process is super simple and can be done with only a few clicks of the mouse.

So if you are in need of deleted file recovery, don't waste another minute as the longer you wait, the more likely it becomes that your deleted files will get overwritten and will be lost forever!

Find out if your delete files can be recovered by visiting Matthew's website today,

There you'll be able to scan your hard drive for FREE using the absolute best data recovery software on the market today.
