Help ! I need disk recovery Key words for Google use.

Postby Aero » Sat Aug 04, 2012 2:18 pm

My wife likes to think she is computer literate. She wanted to install Windows SQL server 2008 on her two year old Toshiba laptop but instead installed Windows Server 2008 OS. Then the screaming started. She lost her Internet connection drivers for one disaster and all of her school work for another. I very helpfully recovered Windows 7 OS from Toshiba’s secret partition on her hard drive, which returned the machine to factory conditions but now the screaming is unbearable. Two years of school work files, photos, resumes, etc. with no backups.

I’ve Googled and discovered various file recovery programs for situations, but am not sure just what this situation is, from a computer/software viewpoint. That is, what do I need to recover from, from a software point of view? What Key words should I search to find the right software (free?) to recover her data?

PS- This problem is very tramatic, I need peace.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery seems to be one of the recovery tools that lists Windows Server 2008 operating system as supported operating system.

http://www.powerdatarecovery.com/power- ... overy.html

It also got good reviews in this comparison, managed to recover all files from formatted disk in that test
http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-fr ... tility.htm

The bad thing is that this company, like software companies in general, seems to assume that if you are using Server OS, you must be a commercial user, so you need to buy commercial license for Server OS version, $119 for this software.

EDIT: Noticed that you have apparently Windows 7 installed now, free version of this is limited to 1 GB recovery only anyway though, personal license is $59

When opinion and reality conflict - guess which one is going to win in the long run.
