    Hey everyone,

    I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall my OS. I had previously backed up my files on an external harddrive (a HDD enclosure housing a desktop HDD, not the small juggable ones).

    However, I tried restoring my data from the backup and while it was being restored I accidentally jigged the HDD enclosure and the USB got dislodged slightly. I then quickly put it back but the restore threw message, cant quite remember what it was.

    I tried to restore the file again, but I couldnt find it on the external HDD. All my other files were there but the .bkf file was nowhere to be found.

    What the hell is happening and can I get my .bkf file back? If I cant, I'll see u all in heaven.

    Thanks.

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks a lot. Already tried the recovermyfiles. No luck.

    Will have the drive sent to professional data recovery experts.

    Regards,

    Good idea.

    I guess it must be expensive?
