File recovery

Hello,

I am trying to recover from a Win2k Pro PC a file that was overwritten
yesterday. So far I've tried Pandora Recovery, PC Inspector File Recovery
and File Scavenger with no luck. Any suggestion/recommendation?

Thank you.

Eric

Re: File recovery

By over written do you mean the file was deleted and the space on the
disk was over written? Or do you mean that somebody saved over the file
with a different version or dropped a different file version in the same
location?

Either way your probably not going to have much fun recovering the file.
If the file was just deleted then you could have much better luck.
Just remember not to defrag your computer.

Re: File recovery

A different version of the file at the same location ... and as you guessed
I didn't have much fun trying. I gave up trying after several hours..

Thank you

Re: File recovery

I'm no file recovery expert (not even a guru), but it's been my
experience that unless you have some system in place that prevents
actually overwriting the original or previous version you probably won't
be able to recover it.
