Recovering Deleted .sql File
Posted on 2008-06-25
Hello, I am guessing this is hopeless but I'm really desperate and need some advice. I'm pretty sure ya'll are gonna tell me I'm screwed...but I'm still gonna ask.
I just got a new laptop at work and somehow, they did not copy over a .sql file I needed and instead...deleted it! It wasn't even in the recycle bin... it was just wiped off.
I went online and downloaded WinUndelete and did a search for the file on my old desktop. I found it... recovered it. But it was in "poor" condition, so I'm guessing that's why when I try to open it, it goes into Notepad and all I see is a bunch of garbage. The file recovered is 29KB and is recognized as a sql server file.
This procedure took me like 4 months to write and I'm desperate to get it back. Is there a better recovery program I can use or some way I can repair the sql file?
Thanks in advance.
