Shredded File Recovery? Usn Journal can help?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello guys, i recently lost 2 very important folders with irreplaceable files when i moved them to a newly formatted partition and ran G Data's file shredder on the folders i had just drag-dropped them from, for some reason after the file shredding, the folders on the newly formatted partition went from having 11gigs of files to 0kbs i.e GONE, I've tried numerous Data Recovery 3rd party programs (Active@ UNDELETE 7 Enterprise & EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Pro 4.3.6 ) but the files recovered we're encrypted badly and then tried system Restore and no luck there neither.

I have been told that if the file system uses a "journal ," the journal can store significant amount of information about a file and that information could be used to rebuild/recover the file or its contents after it has been shredded. so my question is,

1. Can MS Journal help with the recovery? if yes

2. Is NTFS a journal using file system?

3. If it is, where is the journal?

4. How can i recover these files?

I'm using Windows Xp Pro SP2

Thank you for taking your time to read my post!

Help will be highly appreciated.  Thank you!

How to get a mdf file back from sql files recovered from SQL Recovery Toolbox?



I had a corrupted mdf file so I purchsed SQL Recovery Toolbox to fix it. When it repaired the file, it spat out a number of sql files and an install.bat file. Because the file was a sql 2008 express file, i'm supposed to now use sqlcmd.exe to fix it. Apparently to get it back to a mdf file, I need to create a blank database and somehow use sqlcmd.exe to import the sql files into the new mdf file.

I use a security program which installs sql express 2008 during the install. I don't know how to use MS Sql. The security program I use has it's own batch file to attach or detatch the two mdf and ldf file to it. I emailed the SQL Recovery Toolbox tech support for instructions on how to created a new mdf db and import the repaired sql files but they basically said that they have an agreement with MS and cannot tell me how to do it.

Can someone please let me know what to do or where to look for assistance? I am stuck at the moment and don't know what else to do.

Any help greatly appreciated, cheers.

SmtpClient and Locked File Attachments

Got a note a couple of days ago from a client using one of my generic routines that wraps SmtpClient. Apparently whenever a file has been attached to a message and emailed with SmtpClient the file remains locked after the message has been sent. Oddly this particular issue hasn't cropped up before for me although these routines are in use in a number of applications I've built.

ClientAccessPolicy file in SharePoint 2010

I am upgrading my Silverlight demo code from the old beta to beta 2 and see that there are a few new considerations for the deployment of ClientAccessPolicy.xml files. In a previous post I demonstrated how to do this for SharePoint 2007. The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues. In 2010 the virtual path provider no longer serves the files from the root of the site collection

Import XML File to SQL Table

Here is a brief example of importing an XML file into SQL Server table. This is accomplished by using the BULK option of OPENROWSET to load the file, and then utilizing the XQuery capabilities of SQL Server to parse the XML to normalized table format. This example requires SQL server 2005 or SQL Server 2008.

First, the following XML is saved to XML file C:\Products.xml.

Xml File Methods and Properties

Method and Properties of XmlTextWriter class:
The XmlWriter class is a base class that outputs an XML data structure. It has methods to sequentially write XML elements in a proper hierarchy to create an XML file or other types of output streams. The System.Xml namespace provides support for the XmlWriter. It must be imported to the ASP.NET page with the directive

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml" %>

The XmlTextWriter

XmlWriter is an abstract class that is implemented as an extended XMLTextWriter class. The XmlTextWriter writes a sequence of XML nodes one element at a time. Output can be written to an XML file, although other streams of output data can be produced. It can create a new file or overwrite an existing file. Its non-cached writing techniques provides very fast generation of an output stream.

Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

scripts file not found on server - 404


Fiddler is showing a 404 error when my published web application runs. the jquery.js file in
/scripts is highlighted in red by fiddler as not found. ( IIS log also shows the 404 error ).
I run the web app from visual studio, on local host - no problems. The publish is successful.
All the files are in the scripts folder of the web app on the server.

In the site.master I have:
<script src="../../Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Visual studio does not complain about this. ( which indicates the file is found. )

Oddly, when I fully qualify the path, VS says file not found, but after I publish and run, fiddler
shows the jquery file being found and sent to the browser.
<script src="/MvcApplication1/Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

when the <script> path is "../../Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js", the fiddler error is
404: /Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js .

when the <script> path is "/MvcApplication1/Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js", fiddler shows the file
being sent to the browser from that /MvcApplication1/Scripts path.

Both the Scripts fol

Why isn't my Views/Home/Home.Master file published when I publish my website?


Hi All,

I spent the better part of today hunting down an elusive error.  I was getting a message saying that it couldn't find the Index view for the Home controller, and it gave a list of locations it searched, e.g., ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx.  This was really confusing as the file definitely existing and was at ~/Views/Home/Index.aspx, the first place in the list of locations it searched for the view!

What I eventually discovered was that there was a file that did not get published when I used Visual Studio's "Publish" feature (this is on the "Build" menu).  That file was Views/Home/Home.master, and (as you can probably guess) is the master file used by Views/Home/Index.aspx.

Once I copied that file into place manually, it started working.  But I am left wondering--why???  Why does this file not get published?  It's a part of my project, I can see it in the solution explorer, and it's obviously a critical file that's necessary for the MVC app to run.  It has the same permissions as every other file in my project.  So why wouldn't it get copied?  And how can I fix it so it does get copied?

Thanks for any suggestions on this!
