Some of the files on the backup drive don't seem to be there....It's possible I have deleted some on purpose from my pc and have forgotten...any help please....thanks.
There are plenty of recovery programmes out there for free. Which ever you choose do take care not to store the recovered files on to the same drive as you are recovering files from, as this will over wright the very files you are trying to recover. I always recover to a USB drive or external hard drive. Also try recovering with more than one programme as some work better than others. Good luck, I hope it works out ok for you.
