Ok, I got a tricky problem here. I had a 120GD hard drive with 95GB of .wav files on it. There is no OS on this drive-I use it to just store audio.

The other day I mistakened half of the .wavs to be corrrupted by partition magic (changed cluster size), and through half of them away. It was a big mistake! Anyways, I would like to get as many of these files back as possible. The problem is I can't access the recycle bin for this drive. BUT I know the files are still there b/c I can see all the files in the Nero Burning Rom explorer. And all the files appear to work! Also, partition magic says I still have 95GB
on the drive (go figure).

Anyways, is there a way I can access this drive's recycle bin to "restore" these files? Your help is GREATLY appreciated!!!

try undelete

windows 3.1 has an undelete program that might work, or you could look online for a dos undelete program.

When you delete a file, it doesn't really delete it. It just makes the area the file is in eligible to be overwritten. Therefore, to undelete, you need to access a table, if it's a FAT drive, it's the File Allocation Table.

There are A LOT of undelete utilities you can download or you can buy something like Disk Doctor, Norton Utilities, etc.

try: http://www.download.com
