Recovering "Recovered File Fragments"
I moved a hard drive from an old Windows 95 PC (FAT file system) to a new PC that had Windows XP Home Edition.
The new PC had a problem with the file system on the hard drive and converted most of the hard drive to "recovered file fragments". (It created the found.000 directory with literally thousands of file****.chk files).
Does anyone know of a way that I can recover the old FAT file system from these "recovered file fragments"? Would appreciate any help/advice.
Mod w/ an attitude
If there were only a few files, you could go into each file and cut&paste the info into a new file. But since you said you have thousands of files it is far easier to FDISK the drive and start from scratch with a reload.
If the drive had been defragmented prior to installation you might have a chance. Your best hope now is to recover the ascii content of the files.
I'd prefer to reformat the drive , rather than headache and lots of nerves
But , its your choice !
