hi,
the last time I checked on those file was yesterday , when I added a new file to a +20GB folder on my external hard disk
and now when I wanted one of them I found only few files left !! almost 1.7GB left out of all
I can't believe I accidentally deleted all that , mostly that it's more than a sub folder that was gone
I read many articles related to undelete though but they all won't work because :
1- some of them need a software to be installed from the start , before the files were gone , and I didn't have that
2- one article said that pc shouldn't be turned of in order to recover , my case I did twice
3- that same article said that must not write onto the hd to avoid data be overwritten , but I was moving files from PC to hd all morning T_T

I feel like it's hopeless , and that my files are all gone .. like forever gone :(
but I thought I should ask ,only so I won't regret not trying
anyway , thanks alot

P.S : I'm using windows 7 64bit , sony vaio vpcf13wfx and my external is adata superior sh93 500GB if that would help

You might try Recuva ... Found Here

Maybe there's something wrong with the HDD .. I might suggest to test it with HD Tune ...
After running Recuva .. Maybe a bad sector ??
