    Hi, I recently lost 20 avi files on my external hard drive (WD My Passport). The next time I started my laptop Vista started to scan the drive and then said it was 'Recovering Orphaned Files,' it got 3 of the avi's back and I'm now wondering is it possible to get them all back or would those be the only three left? Thanks!
