|Thank You Karin for the reply.As you can see,the post is quite old now and the issue has long been resolved.i had pretty much done the same as you have mentioned in your reply.Anyways, a reply is always appreciated as someone else might benefit from it.|
About renaming the files, like some of the replies told me, there is actually no way of recovering the original file name...which is basically why the files ended up in the Found.000 folder.To rename them,you can as well use a batch file renaming application,hundreds of which are there for free download on sites like www.Softpedia.com
Hope it helps you or someone else who's unlucky enough to end up with .chk files.
I do not completely agree with what you have said.CHK files are not trash.They are just files whose filenames have been lost due to a corrupt MFT.They may not always valid files(ocassionally a few garbage files and corrupt files do exist) but most of the time,from my experience,I have found that they are working files whose extension u have to change on your own,which you can do by following the method Karin just explained.
Thank you again for your replies
I'm trying to give up procrastination......maybe from tomorrow.
