File Recovery Help

Recommended Posts

Hello, using the file recovery tool I was able to find a copy of a spreadsheet 'Forecast Tally.XLSX' however it seems un-recoverable. Is anyone familiar with why this would be overwritten by windows defender? From what I am gather either the user modified this sheet while on a temp profile or after a Windows Update the users 'My Documents' went back to older copies of data.


-User applied windows updates and reports his my documents data is all out-dated files/folders from a month ago

-User also reports sometimes receiving the temp profile error while logging in but hadnt previously reported it

Ultimately i am just trying to recover this one excel file 2019-12-17_12-40-14.thumb.jpg.4c575f10d211567463da19f3bb568856.jpg2019-12-17_12-40-14.thumb.jpg.4c575f10d211567463da19f3bb568856.jpg

In that one shadowvolume has overwritten the file and if recovered it would likely fail to be your lost file.

If you're looking at shadow copies you could try right clicking on the folder and selecting Restore Previous Version.
