Notepad text lost? Transfer help
Hello! So I recently reinstalled Windows 7 and I moved my notepad++ to my SSD so it didn’t get deleted… and it did. All of my saved notes are gone. I have a windows.old file but I’m not sure where I could find my old notepads. Can someone please help? Thank you!
I would try to use software like recuva
in the hope that the new installation hasn’t overwritten the files.
press keys Win+R then write\paste
Type in cmd:
tree c:\ | more
If your windows.old is not a file but a catalog\folder (I don’t remember), do
to write file names of c:\windows.old* and its subfolders containing “MICROSOFT”:
dir c:\windows.old /s /b | find /i “MICROSOFT” >> %USERPROFILE%\DESKTOP\LOSTFILES.txt
also to output in console all file names in that catalog recursively
(recursively - i.e. all folder tree)
for /R c:\windows.old %R in (*) do @ECHO %R
