Recovering Files After Format/Restore from Image Backup
Posted on 2014-02-01
Got a system that had been infected with a virus. It was restored from a backup. Unfortunately, the date on the backup wasn't paid attention to. It was January, 2013 not 2014. So a year's worth of data is gone, particularly from one important program. No recent backup exists. Apparently the backup software stopped working a year ago.
The backup was a complete system image using Macrium Reflect. The restore was a "bare metal" restore, restoring the entire partition from the backup.
Is there any way at all to recover the data files, at least the few from that one specific program, that were lost in this process, now that the restore has been completed?
