Iv just experienced ultimate sods law.
Completed all my uni work, home pc is generally to unreliable to do work on so didnt use it, due to it becoming increasingly unstable lately. Did all the work at uni, oh but we only get 50mb of storage space(...), as a multimedia student when im making an application that involves alot of pictures, morphing sequences saved as AVIs, aswell as accompanying soundtrack etc this obviously needs to be stored elsewhere, I lost my USB stick so was using my ipod nano, finished all the work, unplugged from one pc, plugged into another, ready to present it for preliminary marking(final hand in is in under 24hours, but iv been given an extra week due to the circumstances) and it wiped itself.

Any ideas for getting the thing back, data recovery etc? Free programs etc?
It wiped all my music etc and went back to default settings.
Please help me :x im drowning my sorrows right now. It took me soo long.

every programs having trouble retrieving all the files, as some are dark basic files, which the programs generally dont recognise, so it muddles things all up.
These were the most important files to be honest, i got all the pictures, video files etc and music files back.

Surely someone else must have been in this situation.

Have you tried contacting any specialist recovery companies?
Just to get an idea of the chances of getting the files back?

I hate to say it, but it sounds like you might have to pay to get this sorted. :(

I would have thought so too, i recovered alot ofthe files, avis, jpegs, mp3s, wavs etc.
some of the important files wouldnt recover though, since i didnt have the hexidecimals these&thats of each file association, i was only bothered about my dark basic files too :( lol.
Im just starting that part of the work again 2moro, i think ill probably get a bit of help from people if im stuck like.
Easy recovery pro was by far the best tool for data recovery, over all else recommended. Just for the record :)

Nevermind ey.. :( just gunna spoil my day 2moro tryin to get it all done b4 valentines day, and even then i probly wont have it done so ill be on edge on wednesday evening, and have to make a rush job on thursday when i can, lol =/
