Priceless Picture Recovered From The Drive

eBooks That May Interest You

I have back up the recovered files to another Hard Disc but not all 100% as the backup drive cannot support the large amount of GB files. It have hanged during the transfer and I need to re-started the computer again. All those search result are gone and I need to re-scan their entire Hard Drive again. Another 36 hours? Yawn Sleepy  My goodness Question Well what to do? That was a priceless mistake that lead to this disaster but I am glad as I able to recovered this [priceless] picture! The 1 and only 1.

I need to re-started the scanning process again, no eye see. At night, 8.00PM I will attend Likemind (Malaysia) gathering at Bangsar South Old Town White Coffee. Those are interested are welcome to join us. Participate in this event is free but the foods you need to pay on your own. Laugh Yes


36 Plus Hours To Scan 500+GB Hard Drive

The computer recover software have finished scanning the Hard Drive and it took 36+ hours to do the job. I recovered 15683 jpeg files, some have been corrupted and the problem now I don’t know which html files it belong to and I don’t know when the pictures was taken. All information (date and time) are gone. So how can I recalled when was the events? Question Cry

The other files recover are: (I don’t know how many will still in good condition?)

The Scanning Not Yet Complete

At 1:00PM, it have took up 22 hours and 28 minutes to scan 60% of the 500 + GB external hard disc and the process still ON! I hope it don’t kill the drive (ie overheated or getting hang due non stop scanning) A lot of counters have showed increase of files that will be able to recover. Now it showed I have 1100 video clips and 16,000 pictures. It should be a great news for me but I am not happy yet as I still cannot recover  any of it. The scanning is ON!

Like I mentioned above, I hope the Hard Disc will be still OK by the time when the recovering software have finished scanning it. YES! It can’t be denied that latest technology have been able to develop a Hard Disc (Hard Drive) that is compact and much larger storage space but once it have problem (ie crash, lost of files etc) we need to go through a miserable recovering process. Time wasted to get the whole drive to be scanned and time wasted to wait for it process to recover the files. Frown


The Software Still Trying To Recover My Files

It almost 11 hours now, the recover software still trying to recover those pictures and video clips I have “wipe” of my external hard drive not purposely yesterday night. I don’t know how much time it needed to scan all 500 + GB external drive. At this moment it just managed to scan somewhere 270 ++ GB.

The counters have shown that it managed to scan 12, 370 ++ pictures and 600 ++ movie clips I have taken at various functions and events. If it can be scan that mean there is a chance to get it recover.  Smile Wow! I never know I have so much pictures and video clips on the hard drive. There are more to go. All these are  my work since 2007!

If all these gone and cannot recover, I don’t know if I want to cry or what.  If really can’t recover, all those time and effort I have put in to get these pictures and video clips will be wasted but luckily I have done some backup to CD and other hard drives last month but not 100% complete. If finally cannot recover, then I will lost the work from 13th August, 2010 onwards. Frown

Hopefully the software can create a miracle and the quality of pictures and videos will be maintain. I guessed should be no problem as it still able to scan the present of the pictures and videos. What important is, by the time I knew I have wiped out my entire external hard drive, I did not add any new data to this drive. Logically speaking most data may not have been overwrite so it should be there.

The problem might be on html files as most links to it documents might have gone. Frown
