    Default Six years of files gone

    I'll try to keep this short - I recently built a new pc, backed up files on an external hd, flash drive & floppy; everything fine until I went to restore backup to MS Money. Of course, this was the files I backed up to the floppy, and of course, this is the disk that failed. It is disk 1 of 3 & is vital. I purchased BadCopy Pro which after several hours did recover many files, but these still will not restore. I emailed their tech support and today received a reply that the header or other important file was damaged (he said this was actually a .CAB file) & that there was no hope.

    I KNOW I made the mistake of not backing up what is actually my most critical files correctly, so please don't rub salt in the wound! What I am here for is to ask if there is any possible way to recover this one little file so I can get my financial info back.

    The size of the file is 1.4 MB & everything seems fine until about the 1,191,936 KB area, then it goes downhill from there.....

    Is there ANY possible solution to this?

    Wait... Why didn't you backup all the important stuff to a single device but instead, you backed them up to three different storage devices? Having only one device to temporarily store files will reduce confusion in the end.

    For the file that is 1.4 MB, (I'd say that's a floppy) I'd use these free tools:

    Free file recovery software - recover lost files from a CD, DVD, hard drive or memory card.

    And if you can recover MOST of the data, get it! Most of the data is better than no data at all!

    I suspect something.

    Retriving data from a formatted hard disk? - Dynamic Drive Forums

    Look at that thread. At the very bottom, a user named "davidbrown" posts the exact same thing. How queer coincidence.
