Hi there, i'm very new here and my knowledge is of a very basic standard i'm afraid.

Right here goes....
I am trying to recover some old files that were deleted years ago. I have got [email protected] recovery on my machine and have paid for the registration code.

When i try to recover the files that it has found, it says i need to delete the invalid partition????

Could anyone explain what i need to do please in the most basic way possible please.

Thanks

If and only If you are extremely lucky and the files are still there you might like to try the excellent free
PC Inspector File Recovery http://www.pcinspector.de/default.htm?language=1 which is designed for recovering files without damaging any current data.
When it asks for a location to save files please make sure you save them to a different disk than the one you are recovering from. Also don't install the program on that disk.

Active Partition Recovery is different and is NOT what you need.
