i went to uninstall powerdvd and it took a few of my personal folders with it (apparently some photo captures were inside of them)
how do i get my personal folders back?
I have personally used this program, it works, last time I had to use it, it was free to use for personal use, read the instructions carefully, and I hope you can recover your missing files, if they haven't been rewritten over you will be able to recover them.
You will need a HDD to recover to as well as the HDD to recover from, again read the instructions.
Quote from the manual: To be able to use PC INSPECTOR™ File Recovery 4.x you need a working WINDOWS™ System. Never install the current version on the drive from which you intend to recover data! The software must be installed and run on a second, independent drive.
Hope this helps! Ryan
