Help Recover Sync 2.1 Deleted Files~~!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    My problem is slightly user error.

    I normally sync from a > b for example in 'Echo' mode.

    a: is my internal HDD and I offload photos onto this drive

    so then b: is my external backup copy of these files.


    I was out and about and needed to offload a memory card and did so to my External.

    Then when I Synced a > b, obviously it recognised these extra files as 'Delete' actions

    and did so?

    How can I go about getting them back.

    More to the point I am looking for a detailed log of what these files were?

    I have found the Synctoy log, but it is pretty useless in terms of sharing much info apart from run time.

    Not I Sync in 'Contribute' mode, but this doesn't help me get the 66 files back.

    Hmmmmmmmmm if only I knew what they were/their file names

    Thanks in Advance for any freeware recovery tools that may help.

    Recuva by Piriform only helps if you know what you're looking for,

    and you can't select a folder for it to search in, just sectors of a HDD I think.

  • so synctoy deleted 66 files from my external hdd thinking they were files deleted from my internal

    and actions to be made

    I know what folder but not what sub folder,

    and most scans will show up too much stuff to figure it out.

    any one know how to find a synctoy log which tells you what it has done?

    or know of a good image recovery program which can set the date of deletion or location
