    You can try this:

    http://www.snapfiles.com/get/restoration.html

    There are programs out there that will do a better job, but most of them cost you. All Restoration will do is restore the files that were on the partition (along with everything that was ever deleted and not written over). It's not the best thing you could use, but it's a start.

    Either add more ram or increase hard drive space and you need to be more specific to get a better answer...like when are you receiving that notice, doing what?

    Does it restore files from deleted partitions or files that were deleted from an existing one?

    Not hard to explain. The partition was deleted.

    Well, come to think of it, it probably won't restore files from a deleted partition. GetDataBack will, though. But it's $79.

    I don't see how you can recover anything from a deleted partition and this software doesn't say it does that either.

    To quote from their web site:

    "Recover your files when the data is no longer accessible due to formatting, fdisk, virus attack, power or software failure. Get everything back even when the drive's partition table, boot record, Master File Table or root directory is lost or corrupt"

    At this point it does sound like the partition table has been lost.

    No it is not lost it is "deleted". There is a difference.

    erick295,

    You are quite correct in that software being able to restore deleted partitions

    As a test, I connected another hard drive, deleted the partition, ran the program and successfully recovered the files. Didn't even take that long.

    Guess that's why this is technical support and not grammatical support forum.

    It's been removed from the partition table, but the data is still there.

    Yep, and that's just what the software not only says it can do, but it actually does it.
