File Recovery in Windows® 2000
Get to know more about how to recover files in a Windows 2000 computer.
Windows 2000 systems are equipped with the option for backing up the system files and registry. The backup option is helpful when any of the files in the system get deleted or damaged. The recovery of the deleted and corrupted files on Windows 2000 computers can be performed either using the backup option or using the recovery tools if the recovering files are system files. The personal files can also be recovered by the user with the help of recovery tools. The recovery tools can recover data from the system hard disk only if the data is not overwritten by other contents. While deleting the data from the system, the content will move to the recycle bin folder provided by Windows systems. The user can restore the data from the recycle bin whenever needed until the recycle bin completely fills. The permanently deleted data would also be present on the system hard disk until the space is covered by any other data. With this option in mind, the recovery tools are created.
Discussed below are some points on recovering files in a Windows 2000 computer:
- Using Recovery Tools
- Restoring Registry Backup
- Recovering Corrupted Files
Using Recovery Tools
The user should take care while using recovery tools to obtain the files in Windows 2000 computer. The tools should be specific for Windows 2000 operating system. Else the tool cannot run on the system. The recovery of files that are deleted earlier would not be there in the hard disk. So, the use of recovery tools would be a failure in such cases.
Restoring Registry Backup
Windows 2000 users are provided with a backup CD that includes the registry backup of the system. The user can recover the files that are deleted or corrupted on the system using the CD. Insert the CD and access the backup option from the 'System Tools'. The contents should not be altered inside the backup files folder. The user can restore the files that are lost by selecting the check boxes near to those files. Do not restore the already existing files from the backup CD.
The user can recover the files in Windows 2000 computers that are corrupted. The user should delete the existing file that is damaged before recovering the correct one from the recovery options. Else both the files will cause conflict while working on the system. Also provide the correct location for the restore operation for saving the file.
