    Yeah good link cheers.

    Anyone have an idea how to do this?

    I deleted the user.dat file from my old laptop, and now it wont even boot, no matter what. Not in dos or anything

    I do know there is a copy i made before deleting user2.dat on there

    Could this be fixed?

    If i took the hd out, could I access the files this way?

    May sound like an easy thing, but its just something I havent got round to?

    Buy a hard drive caddy off ebay for about a tenner, you can then access the drive and put the user.dat file back on it. Jobs a goodun!

    Try booting it with a Windows CD and doing a repair.

    If that doesn't work and you've got a second drive in it, install windows on to that, then you can access the other drive to put the files back or get your data off.

    I need something like that ?

    I had an sd card in my phone but spent the day filming in a tv studios and had my phone turned on all the time, on silent ofcourse

    Anyway the next day i went to look at my photos and the files say unrecognised but the amount of memory used to store vids and photos still shows ?

    This is what the files look like []555[][][]5555555[][]555[][]5555[][]55
    Kind of like that :confused:

    Anyone know ? i think they have been super compressed and need extracting somehow ?

    Would love to rescue these photos as my photos and vids from a Roger Waters concert are on there :(

    Thanks !!!
