i was checking the new update for that USB Disk Storage Format Tool and found that no latest update version for it...

while surfing that site i founded this
http://www.authorsoft.com/windows-mess-cleaner.html
 
i was like lets give a try to it... As i already sometime use their USB Disk Storage Format Tool (by extracting exe file)
so decided before installing it ,, lets check it by extracting the soft and if i like it than i will install it permanently.
 
So quickly i right click and used 'uniextract here' and click on yes

That's because you have extracted a folder called Desktop and it was empty and you select to overwrite your Desktop folder, The only solution you have is to use a data recovery program to recover your deleted files.

Look at your screenshot, it clearly states:

 

YES = CLEAR & Extract

 

Cancel = Extract WITHOUT clearing

 

And read the WARNING at the top.... it tells you 3 different times what will happen

Why do you keep everything on your desktop?  I have separate drives for my important stuff, plus backups in the cloud!

my favourite recovery software.. File Scavenger 3.2 cant get a key for the latest version.. but this works perfectly well.. remember.. dont download files to the drive you want to recover.. and with this you'll need somewhere to put the files once recovered as it doesnt do recovery in place.

It was stories like this one that made me start using Macrium Reflect to make REGULAR images of my system. I had lived without a backup system for years and thought "Bah! Who needs one?"....and then the inevitable happened and I was obliged to re-install my OS and track down my favourite programs and re-install everything from scratch...a real pain in the donkey. Anyway I learned my lesson and started using Macrium Reflect....and it has been a Godsend in my hour of need....with the added comfort that even if should my computer go up in flames I can still install the latest image on new hardware. I'm a slow learner, but I get there in the end!!:w00t::w00t::w00t:

Super easy fix,  Insert bootable USB and restore that Retore Image you made prior to testing or at least the last restore Image you made...

Nope, it will not work. As System Restore will only restore with something related to the system like: you are installing new program or removing one. But, it will never restore your losing data or docs...

 

Only Data recovery will solve your problem. I am using Easeus Data Recovery to recovery my docs awhile ago, and it works like a charm.

You could try O&O Disk Recovery to recover data. Or get a Sergei Strelec boot disk, it has a lot of tools inside it. I remember way back when I lost everything, I now days backup all my stuff to an external HDD.

this icare recovery able to recover mostly all main stuff nearly 35GB .. even ISO office, en_windows_10_enterprise_ltsc_2019_x86_dvd iso file even .mkv HD movies wooooo 🤗 :dance:  some 2 pics it was saying corrupt...so i use auslogics and it was able to recover that 2 pics.

 

but both these and every recovery soft was not able to get back my txt/notepad file (325kb size).. it able to recover but corrupt file..

  many tips tricks i use to save in it.. its like my secret diary lol.. 

i  backup it 7 months back.. but the main things wat i updated in it few months back..damn all gone now.. my mistake, should have backup it.

I would highly recommend you (use any one of several very good programs) to make a restorable image of your System, and a very good program (Bootable USB) is called.

which has almost any program you might want or need to locate and restore, fix a corrupt hhd and to make a restore image....

Always read prompt screens carefully! 

 

A few years ago I accidentally formatted 1.5tb of data on a 2tb external drive while trying to create an image backup of C (funnily enough) using Win 10 recovery. 

 

I had created a separate partition on the external drive but Win 10 ignored it for some reason and nuked all partitions on the drive. I realised quickly and cancelled the operation before any data could be written since this massively reduces likelihood of successful recovery of previous data/files.

 

Anyways, I used Active Data Studio to recover the entire partition with all data in tact. Lesson learned. Keep an external drive strictly for back ups only, no messing with the partitions either.

 

Should this ever happen again, stop using the drive from which you wish to recover any files since writing data will significantly reduce the chance of a successful recovery. Boot up on a different system using iso image of the recovery software and then connect the drive you wish to recover from (ideally using a write blocker/read-only cable/device.)

 

Hope you managed to recover your data.

Yes, easy to do wrong... my preference is Boot PE - insert a Portable USB - HDD/SSD, then use (1.) Acronis to make a Restoreable Image (2) Paragon to make another restorable image (3) Macrium Reflect to do the same.

 

I only have 1 visible Partiton with different Folders and the name is Backup so when inserted easy to find.

He's not looking to restore data or docs.

His desktop has been deleted, which is a Windows file system virtual folder.
