    Smile Overwritten file recovery

    Hi, I have been having difficulties on retrieving the overwritten video files from the hard disk.

    I have tried using ‘GetDataback’ software to recover the data but no luck.

    I have also tried with ‘Glary Utility’, ‘Stellar Phoenix’, ‘Kernel for Windows’ software but the software did not find my file that was overwritten.

    I was wondering if there is any software or way to recover it back.

    Thanks.

    Default Data Recovery

    Hi,

    What exactly do you mean by overwritten?

    If you had a 50gb disk on which you lost your files, and then you filled it up again with 50gb of new data, then the original data has been overwritten and destroyed. There is no way to get it back.

    Depending on you answer to above, you may wish to download Recover My Files from Data Recovery Software to Undelete Files; Disk recovery; Recover Deleted Files and give it a try in evaluation mode to see if you can find and preview any of your important files. If you can find them then you can purchase a key to save the files to another drive.

    Good luck.

    Smile Overwritten file recovery

    Hi Mr. Graham

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have approx. 200gb hard disk space, and my situation is quite same with your '50gb' example but it was not 100% filled with new data because there are approx. few gb space left.

    I have tried 'Recover My Files' and it can find all the data which have been overwritten but it just cannot find the data i needed.

    Example: data 'A', 'B', 'C'
    the software can find back 'A' and 'C', but it cannot find back 'B' which is the files that I need. I really run out of solution..

    I have also tried with 'Recuva Data Recovery' & 'Pareto Data Recovery' but still facing the same problem.

    Is there any other powerful software that I can try?

    Thanks

    Default Data Recovery

    Hi,

    It may be that the files that you need have been overwritten and destroyed.

    Probably the best option now is for you to click on the blue live support button in the top right hand corner of this page and ask for me. I can then see if there is a solution.

    Thanks
