reply from technical support stated as follows:

''It seems that your C drive is under FAT32 system. Current version of
FreeUndelete only supports NTFS drives.''


PLEASE NOTE: These guys replied in minutes! officerecovery.com



But yeah, I'm still no nearer to recovering my mp3's...

Have I just lost my life collection of music?

*trying to lol & see the funny side....* :eek:

Sorry about the freeware, didnt' know you hadn't converted your disks.
There are all kinds of undelete programs out there. You may just need to do some research on them.
Your files aren't gone yet, when you delete a file windows just removes the file name from it. The data still exists until windows writes over it. Other than that, sorry. I'm not the most learned guy here, so maybe someone with more knowledge on this could help you out.

oh man..

im still here like 6-7 hours later trying to restore my ****, managed to locate the files and restore but around 80% of the mp3s wont play, about 10% are playing as normal but have seemed to swap file names with other non related files, for example a radiohead tune called creep, is now a beatles song called yellow submarine....

Also some files seem to be mixed up like ill play an mp3 and it will be 2/3 songs mixed in to one, what nightmare argh :mad:
