How do I recover a deleted file on a Nokia 9500?
Posted on 2010-08-17
I want to recover a deleted file that is very important to me.
While updating this file and typing in a hurry, I accidentally pressed CTRL-A and as I continued typing everything was wiped. The editor will only undo one step so no luck there. I closed the file and told it to discard changes, however when I re-opened the file it was just as when I closed it with only the last few characters I had typed - I can not understand or explain why it did this, normally "dischard changes" leaves the original file alone.
Having lost the file on the device, I checked my *.nbu backups on the PC and inexplicably the only file _not_ in the backups is the big important text file I so want to recover. An IT device conspiracy? Could a text file be too big for the Nokia PC Suite to back up? I guess I should learn to check backup logs for errors.
I have recovered an old copy of the file from a backup from 2009-12-22 which is better than nothing, but given today is 2010-08-17 that's a loss of nearly eight months of data.
In short: is there any way to scan and recover data stored in the 9500's memory?
