See what Data Recovery does

http://tokiwa.tomato...Recovery_EN.zip

All About
DataRecovery is freeware and written by TOKIWA
to undelete accidentally deleted files even from recycle bin.

But DataRecovery doesn't assure that all files deleted can be recovered successfully.
It mostly depends on your system/configuration and we can't support each of all those varieties.

Compatible operating systems
Windows95/98/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP/2003
Key-features
FAT12,FAT16,FAT32,NTFS undeletion
undelete whole files in a directory in a single click
search by partial string in the file name
runnable from floppy disk
undelete NTFS compressed files
undelete EFS encrypted files
How to use
You can understand it intuitively through simple UI. So there is no need for instructions. Just KISS!

On FAT volume
First character of the file name is sometimes overwritten by delete-code on deletion. In that case the lost character is replaced by "$" on the list displayed.

Install/Un-install
DataRecovery doesn't need to be installed. Just unpack the archive you downloaded and it's runnable.
DataRecovery doesn't install anything, so no registry entries or initialization files are left on your computer when you delete the directory of DataRecovery.
File Attributes
R read-only
H hidden
S system
D directory
A archive
N normal(no other attributes are set)
T temporary
O offline
C compressed
E encrypted
Rp reparse point
I index view
Sp sparse file

the same problem happened i ran undelete and it found the files but after recovering or saving them when i try to open them Winace asks for a password and then says that it wasnt encrypted with winace what could be causing this?

my system specs are listed below

this wouldnt have been a problem if i would be able to image my drive then all i would do would be drag and drop but i dont have a floppy drive (stupid people at comp place said it wouldnt be needed and u could make a bootable cd but they were wrong all programs ask for a bootable floppy gunna get one this week)

is there anything else i can do undelete restores the file and it reads like this: IMAGE~23_JPG and the file is XEF-Datei
i have no idea what this is anything else u can think of?

i dont no for some reason i went to accses the folder one day and it was missing it contained many hidden folders aswell this is a family computer so maybe someone else deleted it.

but PC inspector exports them as XEF i have never heard of this and am really stuck.
after it says that it has exported them or restored them they are there but in a XEF file (what ever that is) i dont no how to veiw them or even convert them into something that is recognisable
i have no idea what XEF is or how these programs work so how can i get these files to be restored to their original file extension so that i can see them and veiw them?
