Deleted Acronis images - Need to get them back!!!

  compumac 20:18 PM 07 Sep 11

I cannot believe that I have just deleted all of my Acronis images!!!!! before I start to panic - How good is Recuva for this situation, if at all? Answers please before Coronation Street starts so that I can go to bed and not suffer hours of tossing and turning.

Do not write anything to the drive the images were on and Recuva should be able to find them.

  lotvic 20:27 PM 07 Sep 11 is about recovering a deleted .tib file, might be useful but also try a google search

PC isolated already with instructions to family to not even look at it. Never used Recuva at all. To ease my suffering - how does one use it in my situation?

Is the free version of Recuva OK for my situation or does it need the purchased version?

As you have to install Recuva it would be best to install on another pc and hook up the other HDD as a slave or use USB caddy if you have one. Note that it says to restore the files to a different drive

(You don't want to risk overwriting the .tib when installing and you will want to store the .tib somewhere else)

Running Recuva now - First scan showed some tib files that I deleted last October. Am now running the long scan (two hours?). While that is running I can go and watch Coronation Street anyway. For years I have told people to sit on their hands before pressing delete!!!!!

Alas - Directory containing all Acronis imaages are gone! I was able to watch Coronation Street live anyway. Juat realised that I had created an image using Windows 7 at the beginning of August. Will now start creating fresh Acronis images. I still find it unbelievable that have deleted something as critical as images.
