Recover data from Found.000 after Norton's Speed disk and Windows' check disk that went wrong
Posted on 2004-09-24
This machine has a 2 partition disk, one of it has Win98(FAT32) and the other WinXP(NTFS), when XP was installed the space left in 98 partition was too little, causing it not to run due to swap file malfunction.
Then we tried to redimention both partitions, making a full backup before (we believed)
When I tried to use Norton Ghost it stated the disk was not de-fragmented so I executed Norton Speed Disk, after it finished it asked for a checkdisk.
After the checkdisk finished in the FAT32 partition appeared a folder called File.000 and inside it about 8000 files called FileXXXX.chk
The thing is, what started as a normal procedure ended up in a failed backup of several important files, including some friend's thesis....
I need to recover the data on the .chk files, maybe undoing the chkdsk ¿? or maybe the Norton speed disk messed things up ¿?
Appreciate your help
