    I have a laptop with XP Prof OS & four partitions in NTFS format (C,D,E & F drives). Six months back I changed the OS into Windows 7 (Not in quick format mode). But, the OS is not functining properly. So, again I changed the OS to XP Prof. in normal formating mode. For OS I used "C" drive only. Remaining drives are not formatted.

    I kept all my video's & photos in "F" drive.

    Now, Whatever the video files are there in previous XP Prof. OS(Useing XP OS is the same CD with key before & present)those are not playing. Photos are also not opening. It says, data is over written(video's (avi format)/JPEG format photos). I used Stellar phonics data recovery tool & few other data recovery softwares. I am able to recover all those video's & photes with the name and date which I gave, But, those are not opening. All my efforts are in vain. How can I restore those videos again?

    Dear JST1946,
    I tryied with Recuva. I downloaded from the link given by you. But, unfortunately the result is not fruitful. Anyhow, thank you very much for your support.

    The data on f shouldn't require any recovery if it wasn't formatted & was left intact when you installed whatever,when you access drive F from windows you should see the files that were there before is this the case

    I need to recover some video files from my Canon Legria which I'm afraid were overwritten. Does anyone knows if this is possible. Many thanks for any help.
