|good day, i hope this is the right forum for this problem. i week ago while trying to downgrade from vista to xp, i made a mistake and partioned part of my external hard drive that had over 400gb of data on it. my computer no longer could see the drive and i took it to a guy who does data recovery. |
well thankfully he was able to recover the majority of my data! unfortunately there's thousands of folders with crazy names like recoup dir 1, recoup dir 800, etc......i had over 400gb of videos and personal music that i have done with my groups and all the songs are called numbers. for example, a song called "i love you" is now called something like 3847512918743. There's no way i can go through all the folders and put all these things in there right locations. i'm happy to have everything back, but this is crazy. i put several cd's of mine on my computer and all the songs are now called numbers and there all mixed up by thousands of different folders, same with videos, and pictures.
I know this is a long shot, but is there any programs that can restore these files to their original names? i know this is an even longer shot...but is there any programs that but all these albums and videos back in their original folders? i haven't even looked for my programs yet. This recovery has tons of text files..............any help or advice? thanks very much
