Re: Recovering address book file

2017-01-07 Thread Maggie Meister
Hi Rick,

Yah, we did recover most of it and picked up a few since the last 
backup, so all isn't lost except for time. And now we've got two 
tools which can help in other ways with your recommendations. 
Thanks again, Rick.

Further on Recuva's progress. It did find the .abd. But, when she
tried to open it from the addressbook, it didn't show the
filename, and it had 0 entries.

Many thanks for your help. Somehow the file must have gotten
shredded in the accidental delete.

When you have to choose between two evils, choose the one you
haven’t tried before.

Lee was clearing out the cabin customer addresses in preparation
for our January mailing and accidentally erased the entire file
instead of the a single entry. Apparently, there was a confirm
screen, but it was to delete the _entry_, not the _file_. I can't
understand why there isn't a provision to automatically move it
to the Trash folder.

With the program, Everything, it was well-behaved, but it did not
show the missing file. Well, it's hard to search for a negative. 
It may prove useful in the future. Thanks for pointing me to it.

_Recuve_ did not give a choice to load on a dongle and it set
Chrome as the browser the minute it was loaded. She used the
piriform's site. Not very well-behaved. The search is still going
on, but we have been able to piece together a mostly complete
list from the reservations calendar, so we're not completely
lost.

I'd still like to see a file like this go to Trash instead of 
oblivion.

I use another goodie called "Everything" from voidtools.com It searches all 
your hard drives instantly. The have a portable installation but I use the full 
install. Just start typing a file name (wildcard work) and it if is there it 
will show. A right click gives the usual options plus "Open path" that opens 
Windows explorer and highlights the file
VERY handy!

Thank you Rick, we'll try it. I wonder why it didn't go to a 
Trash folder?
