Files missing after sync - Windows 7

I have a work folder on our file server and I set up Sync on it.  It worked but then the server crashed and I continued working on my offline folder.

I copied ALL my client work onto this folder and this morning the server was up and running again.

It synced with my laptop but now all my data is missing.  

The server only had my folder but no data in it as they did a fresh server install.

How could this have happened and how can I get my data back

I did look in c:\windows\crc but there's no extra data.

I used Active Undelete but I can't go into the Windows folder to see if there's data that was deleted.

Please advice me :(

The CSC is a hidden folder pretty sure.....

Get the following from the web....

Features and functions in version 1.1 of the Client-Side Caching ...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884739

DL it here....Copy it to C:\windows\system32
http://stingr.net/ftp/pub/csccmdv1.1.zip

Then run the following command....

csccmd.exe /extract /target:C:\ExtractedFiles /recurse

If you see it extracting data, then go to c:\ExtractedFiles and see whats present....

If you COPIED the data though, you don't have the original (as in MOVED it)?

Guessing no Server backups?

If anything I would pull the drive and look at Data Recovery software......

My 2 preferred apps.....

Kroll Easy Recovery Professional
http://www.krollontrack.com/resource-library/free-downloads/

Data Recovery Software - EaseUS® Data Recovery Wizard
http://easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/

You can scan for free, but it does require a license to recover the data.

Hi,

No server backups. That csccmd doesn't work in Win 7 and we don't have xp.

I did use software recovery and got loads of tempxxxxxx.dat files. Problem now is that I have to rename the .dat to each application I use like .xls , .pdf ect and there's over 1000 files. This will take forever :(

That probably wont work....

If you can recover the CSC folder as a whole, move it to an XP machine in the CSC folder and retry the Extraction.... I have done this from XP to an XP machine, but I dont know if it would work....
