Urgent! How to do file recovery
hongen Dec-18-01 08:53 PM
It is urgent! I created a new folder in C drive and rename it to "Presentation". I copied a file from a floppy to c:\Presentation and modified it. Then when I copy the file back to floppy, the floppy was full and could not continue. So I accidently click on "Edit ->Undo" couple of times until I found that my file in c:\Presentation is gone and the folder name changed back to "New Folder". Please let me know how to recover the file. Thanks in advance. Hongen.

It may be possible to recover with a tool like Norton Utilities (http://www.symantec.com/consumer_products/home-ps.html) or Recover98 (http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0-10096-100-1583639.html?tag=st.dl.10001-103-1.lst-7-3.1583639), if you have not done anything that would write to the disk where peices of the file were located, but I would not bet on it. I would try to recreate the file from the most recent backup you have while the changes are fresh in mind--sigh! Larry
