I accidently deleted some of my files. I have windows vista basic. Ok i used this file called restoration to get my files back. I retrieved them so i was happy. Unfortunately, when i try to access some of the files, or most of them, say for example a picture, it says the file format is not supported.
When i try to access a word document that was restored, it appears in symbols. It shows something about file conversoin, and when i clicked the windows default, i still only get symbols.
When i try to play an .mp3 file that was restored, it says the file you are trying to play has an extension (.mp3) that does not match the file format.

All of the picture files are in .jpg format, all of the song files are in .mp3 format, and all of the word documents are in .doc format.

FYI, these files were on my pda phone and i transferred it to my laptop. I placed it in a folder that was accidently deleted.

Any idea as to why i cant view the files i recently restored??

Any other programs i can use to restore deleted files??

The phone had windows mobile 6. My laptop has office 2003 professional if that helps.
Than you
