Data lost after a Win Repair use. Recovery?
« on: April 23, 2018, 02:46:17 PM »
Is there a way to recover data lost. I suspect my files went missing during a win repair  all in one 4.0.9 use. Any help would be appreciated. Vista 32

All I can suggest is to open the program and click on Backup Tools - click on Restore under Registry Backup - Registry Restore then use the dropdown to select the dated back up and then hit Restore Now.

However, I'll pass this onto my Support.

What sort of data has been lost ?

Also, what was the reason for running the repair program ?

The program cannot delete data - except the file cleaner.  What is missing?

Thank you Boggin an JPM for your interest in my question.

Just after using Tweaking Repair I also had used a MS Hotfix and also deleted the program. After this is when  I noticed that data was missing. Contents of my Documents folder,Picture folder, and possibly more. I've had problems with my power supply cord and my computer has been repeatedly shutting down unexpectedly. I believe I've corrupted the OS and have had no Recovery Points to recover or the ability to make. That, with some issues for Internet connecting caused me to try those fixes in the first sentence. ( I don't remember the name of the Hotfix and have lost browser history of it).  Not knowing that Tweaking Repair couldn't delete data, I contacted the forum hoping for some way to recover the lost data.   Care to recommend a free Data Recovery program?

The only free program that I know of is Recuva but don't know if that will do the job for you, given that your computer will have bee restarted a number of times.

Are you still having Internet connectivity problems ?

Boggin:

Tweaking Repair may have solved my internet connectivity problems. What used to happen, after I opened a browser and clicked on a tab/address was : I'd get an error box, then I would run Network Diagnostics and it would connect. This would happen every time the computer was shut down. But since running the program just a few days now, it doesn't do this. Hoping it stays like this.  Why are you up so late? It must be near midnite in the UK? Get some sleep!
