Recover system image

Postby jiminy16 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 3:32 am

ladies & gentlemen:
please sit back until I can figure out reasonable questions. I am at present trying to recover a system image from prior to Jan 15
with the hope that I can recover my data. Since I have not formatted a hard drive in years, never consciously created partitions
and still do not know how to interpret the messages Win sends me about insufficient space, You can appreciate that I sill have to
do some studying to be semi capable of comprehending your comments. As an Aside, for the first time I noted some trojans & viruses
showing up in my virus software's report. I bet you have guessed that I did not write down their names. My apologies for my lack of
ability to stay up with you.

 Edit: Split from 4.1.6 tries to open SS and write files as text as the issue is not the same

Whatever you do, don't format the hard drive where your data is currently stored. That's a pretty good way to guarantee that you will never see your precious 1s and 0s again!

You can find videos on YouTube telling how to recover data using Linux live USB sticks. If Windows is sending you an "insufficient space" message when you try to recover, then you may need to move your data files to an external drive before you can recover Windows. You probably should be asking this question on a Windows forum since it's a Windows problem.

If the data is really important you might want to consider getting a professional to help. There are a lot of different ways to make irrecoverable mistakes. Can you post the actual error messages that you are seeing?
