Data recovery
 
Need some help, PC boffins.

I used a recovery program on my PC a good while ago to get back deleted uni work. Now I need to try and recover documents from the mrs' grandad's laptop, mostly legal and financial stuff as he went mental with a UTI and deleted a load of stuff lol. However, I was thinking that installing the recovery prog to his laptop will maybe overwrite what we're trying to recover, so is there a way to install the recovery prog to my machine and run it on his drives?

Also, any recommendations on which prog to use? Been that long I cant remember what I used.

Advice much appreciated. Cheers!

I can't remember the tech terms but surely you can plug his drives in your machine as slaves and run the software from your machine that way? I did it many moons ago and it worked sort of I think.

I'd use something like this http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/compon...28753-pdt.html
(You'd need to check his drive would fit tho) with this https://www.piriform.com/recuva

You can plug his hard drive to your of and use it as a slave drive. Varies from drive to drive, but there's a good tutorial on youtube.

most programs designed to recover data will run in standalone mode where it can run from a USB stick or somesuch, so nothing needs to be written to the disk you're recovering from. :)

You're all correct pretty much. Data is my actually deleted straight away, the portion of disk is just marked to be used again.

I would slave it to another computer personally as a preventative measure.

I know I'm correct. I've been working in IT for ... A little while ;)

I was wrong back in 1996 I think (somewhere round there). But it's rare. ;)

Not sure you could user the word "work" tbh. Attend is probably more apt.

What you need?

I don't know much about it but there is maybe software through which you can recover the deleted data.

Manu 21st January 2019 18:29

Dude bumps 5 year old thread, to say he doesn't know anything.

What's your point m9

U WANTIN BACKED UP, I'LL BACK YOU UP!

Manu 22nd January 2019 11:41

There is no point, I was merely looking at the funny. Other than that I'm good, I have 4 separate hard drives backing up about 2.5 Tb. Data recovery is irrelevant in my house.

HELL YEAH CAPS LOCK M7
