Hello. I just wannka ask you something, but maybe is later...
This summer in a 2012 I losted my files. I'm a big fan and collectioner of the electronic music - progressive, tech house, techno, minimal.

I used/using Windows Vista and some day all my background was black. I made something, but can't remember. Something like "boot" and.. I re-installed my Windows.
Now from August till now I have many new music files...

Is there a way to recover my deleted files in august, if is possible? I tried 3-4 programs like Pareto, GetDataBack for NTFS, Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery - Home & iCare data Recovery Software, but nothing...

If someone can help me, if is possible, just tell me, please.
Cheers!

It is approximately six months since August 2012. During that six months, the hard drive will have had a lot of data written to it which will have destroyed the files you are trying to recover.

In order to recover deleted data you need to use recovery software straight away, not six months later, and since you've already tried 3-4 recovery programs without success, I do not think you will get those files back.

Please remember that important files should be saved on at least two hard drives, not just one.

Yes! phil22 is absolutely correct! The newly saving files has overwritten your original data and erased it permanently. That's why all the recovery tools cannot make a sense. So, you should learn to do regular data backups all the time in the future.

When I installed the windows everything was new. I don't remember when i made this, if I formatted the hard.
I don't care about othe files, only about the music, who was 110 GB only selected music.

Anyway thanks for the help. It's my mistake :(

Thanks.

Yes, you can recover deleted files of iPhone from an old backup, but it will recover everything in that backup; there's no way to selectively recover from a backup. Which is a good reason to back up daily.
If you back up to your computer connect the phone to your computer, right click on it in iTunes, and choose "restore from backup". If you back up to iCloud go to Settings/General/Reset - Erase All Content and Settings. You will then be asked if you want to restore from the iCloud backup with iPhone Data Recovery.

I just got an iPhone 5S and I shot some files on it before I synced it to iTunes. I (yes, stupidly because I didn't understand what the term completely entailed) restored the old iPhone to the new one and wiped out the files. It looks like you can recover from the old phone even without back up but currently no one has software for recovering files after a restore on a 5S, and I checked out iPhone Data Recovery and other programs, and happened to find them nice.
