That's odd,

Let see what we can do about that.

Hello,

This is a very uncommon, unfortunate incident and has been reported to the author of DelFix.


Please note that the more you use the Computer once the Files have been deleted, the less chance of recovering them with any program, because the deleted Files are quickly overwritten.

What I suggest is as follows:

Using a second computer to download and install Recuva Portable to a flash drive, then running it from the flash drive on the computer that the files were deleted from seems to be the safest way to get the best success.


Also see this but you must have had file history on for it to be successful \.

Fantastic, Recuva worked to recover those two files. Thanks so much!

 

Any other steps I should take?

Hello,

Great! You can thank DonnaB for that, she provided me with that instruction set for you. I don't think I would have thought of that myself.

I think we are done here.

I would review the information Here

Thanks
Joe :)

You're welcome,

Naathim was a helper in the issue too, so it was a group effort...
