    Hi everybody,

    By mistake, I deleted a folder from a zip disk.
    Is there any way to recover it?
    Thank you in advance.

    Daniel.

    I don't think so. Not unless you backed up the disk.

    No, I'm afraid ZIP disks aren't nice enough to put their files in the Recycle Bin, nor are they nice enough to have the data recoverable like normal hard drives
    If you are really desperate then there are special recovery companies that could probably help but they'd probably charge a fortune (maybe $1000) just to do the recovery for you.

    You may be able to recover it with Norton Disk Editor (runs in dos) if you can find where it was on the disk, Norton Undelete might be worth a try before you use disk edit.

    If you have placed other files on the disk since you deleted the folder then the chances of you finding anything are reduced.

    If you don't have Norton Utilities I suggest you buy it as it is cheaper then a data recovery service - it's saved my life on a couple of occasions when disks have become corrupt.
