I haven\'t meant to restore my PC system, for I always doubted whether my files could still be there. But one day as the virus attack, I had to do that. Lack of experience, I didn\'t back up my files, thus many of them have been lost. The files are really important for me, including my paper documents, precious videos, and the only photo taken with my best friend.
I had been upset for nearly a week. Approaching the net, I surprisingly found that not a few people have met this kind of problem. Then how to retrieve these lost files after system restore? Before introducing solutions, I\'d like to explain why we lose files after system restore.
Why We Lose Files after System Restore?
I. No backup
Some people are likely to save their files on the disk C without any backup. When the system restore is done, this disk would be formatted, the operating system erases all book-keeping information on the disk, and we will lose our files.
Dealing with the system restore, some people may accidently choose all the disks to be formatted, thus all the files on them would lose; some may mess up the partition table, and the data could not be properly read and written; or some may not understand the instructions very well and omit a few steps, lost their files.
In the process of system restore, other factors like the severity of virus, the internal fault of hard disks, or the incompatibility of systems are all likely to lead our files lost. Some of them are evitable, while some are inevitable.
How We Keep Files after System Restore
Undoubtedly, the best and cheapest way to prevent your files lost is to do backup. If time could be called back, I would back up my files on a storage hard disk before restoring the system. Then after the restore was done, I could copy them to my PC at any moment I like, without worrying about losing them.
Since time past could not be called back again, how can we retrieve the lost files? For me, I successfully retrieved the lost files with data recovery software. After the files are lost, sometimes the data itself isn\'t deleted; just the area where the lost data was stored is now marked as free space for other new files to be written. So we can retrieve the lost files with data recovery tools.
There is much data recovery software on the current market, so choosing the appropriate one is important. Personally I used Wondershare data recovery software. It is professional recovery software, which understands the internals of the system used to store files on a disk (the file system) and uses this knowledge to locate the disk space that was occupied by a deleted file.
While retrieving your lost files, it won\'t cause any further damage to your previous data. The RAW recovery, one of the four recovery modes, can deeply scan the computer to retrieve the lost files. Or if the problem lies in the partition table, you can use Partition Recovery to retrieve your lost files.
Tips: Back up Files before System Restore
Back up your files before system restore is the best and cheapest way to prevent your files lost. You can do that with a storage hard disk or professional backup software like Wondershare Time Shuttle. It serves as a professional system restore software which helps you restore system, remove PC problems and prevent data loss with the help of up to 1,000 restore points (snapshots) you created. Thus you won\'t bother retrieving lost files after the system restore done.

I inserted another ad in my newsletter this week for your site.
I am still amazed at the conversion your site continually generates.
Your affiliate program is among the best I've advertised in my ten
years of doing business online.
I just wanted to fire off a quick message of thanks. As I was doing my end of month accounting I found myself a few thousand bucks short at the worst time of the year - tax time.
So I looked up my list of best performing affiliate programs and there was yours, right at the top.
I sent out a message to my subscribers that day, telling them about your great site. Not only did I get lots of letters of thanks from my subscribers, I had money in my paypal account just days later.
Thanks for having such a top performing affiliate program and superb service. Oh and thanks for paying out so quickly, that worked out great!
To your continued success,
Jeremy you're a diamond!
You teach me how to steal! :)
You are a diamond. It's the only way I can describe you. If I can't say you are a diamond, then, I will say you are crazy :) I'll tell you why.
I'am always skepctical about internet offers. Most of the time, I purchase products that the value is far less from the price tag. I've never believe in claims like "value at $97 but you pay only $19.00". Because, most of the time I found out that the product should be sold for free since there is no value to it. Even though I will get a refund, it still wasted my most precious asset, my time.
I then only try to value a product or package of product like yours by the quantity of products. If the package is sold for $97 with 10 products, I will only value the products for $9.7 each no more no less. I don't care what they say about the value of the package.
Then, I sumbled upon your SFW package. I said to myself, "Not again!" Then, I said, "Ok, let's give this guy a time. Who knows I can find something with a real value here." I then browsed your website page by page. You heard it right. I browsed from the "Free Download" area until the "Gold Perk" area. From page 1 until the last page.
I said to myself," S#@%, this guy is crazy. The gold package could be around 1,000 products which can easily take 1Gb space. 1Gb! 1,000 products! With this price! Is this guy crazy? Each product will cost less than a penny. This must be hoax!"
But now I know that your product is NOT a hoax! It's a diamond! It's a steal! By dividing your price and the number of your products, I get my real first STEAL on the net. I got each product for less than a penny regardless the price tag.
I've found many other packages out there. NONE of them can defeat your package. If I want to compare it with them, they will sold your package around thousands of dollars.
Additions to my surprise, your are very friendly. You replied every emails that I sent in a friendly and helpful way. AND, you keep throwing in lots of new products each month for free, especially this Christmas.
Most people try to give ME a discounted sales letter and give THEMSELVES a Christmas gift FROM MY POCKET. While you, Jeremy, you GIVE Christmas gifts for me and your other subcribers FOR FREE.
Well, I would like to call a friendly guy like you as a diamond, not a crazy person. You overdeliver! You rock, man!
