Hi a while ago I permanently deleted data from my HD. I used the file shredder feature from bitdefender to do this. I wanted to get that data back. I tried the software "GetDataBack" and scanned the HD for deleted files. Luckily it found all the files and they were all the right size but each of the files that were shredded has a line going through it (meaning it was deleted permanently) When I tell it to recover the file it copies the file to my HD, when I try to open the file it basically does not work. Any idea to how get permanently deleted files like this back or is it not possible. PS: By permnently deleted I don't mean empty the recycle bin, but instead deleted via a program, in this case fileshredder which took several hours to delete the whole data. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
