Hi
Not watching what I was doing (First time in I don't know how long) I hit shift+delete on a folder I should not have

I would like a program that I can use to point at "Folder1" and undelete the files/directories it finds including all subfolders. Multiple files types   Ideally to a diff drive/directory in case deleted files get overwritten

GPT drive formatted to ntfs

As always - thanks in advance Zeb...

Hi PCNetSpec

Thanks for the reply. It wasn't until I read your reply that I realised this was a new drive I had left on NTFS and forgot to convert before I used it.

Fingers crossed Recuva will complete the task of recovery within the hr.   Its not mission critical data but nice if I get back 80%.  It says 100%  but lets see.

Next time Zeb...  SLOW DOWN YA NUGGET

Hi all

As I suspected, I lost a few files but a good 80-85% were recovered ok
