Sup folks, I could use some help from those, who still visit our site.
My friend just fucked up a giant ammount of important MS Office files(careless bitch) and I need to get them back. I digged to the deepest butthole of google search - far more than 4th page and couldn't find anything, that works.
Easy office recovery, easy word recovery, recuva, pdf recover tools etc - none of them works.

Best my progress is this:


It's not what I really expected.

Maybe if you know some ways or programms, I would be glad to know and risk to try it.

Virus. They have been erased. When I found them, they were broken.

If they were erased from disk, then the only choice is some recovery tool. But since you used Recuva, which I would suggest, and nothing came up, that is about all you can do... I don't know how to help you mate.

Is there a chance of the original files still being around? Like a Temporary folder thats hidden, or maybe the "Volume shadow copy" was on, havent used it but google the term and it might be a chance.
