Last week some of my files ended up in the recycle bin and i think it was a result of a Windows update. I would NEVER have put these files in the bin as they are way too important so i think that the update was the main culprit. So, without thinking, i deleted everything in the recycle bin and then to my horror later found out that many files were missing!
Anyhow, i recently downloaded Recuva software and many of the files are deemed 'unrecoverable' as they have been overwritten by other files or something like that. Should i try some more recovery software or is there an alternative method of getting the pre-overwritten files back???
P.S i have tried Pandora Recovery and put the recovered file sonto a USB and then back into the C Drive. Next i tried a system backup and restore to the date of the incident (is this a bad thing to do?) and next i tried the aforementioned Recuva software. I have OCD and these files are basically my life and it's really depressing me right now. Sorry for the sob story, just trying to amplify the urgency of the situation
