Dear,

I use an antivirus named trend micro titanium on my PC which runs by windows 7. In a folder I had some 10/11 files, but now I can find only 3 files. These files show no data inside. When I go to the properties of those files it shows 0 bytes. I want to know how to recover 0 byte file. How can I recover data from these files? These data are so imp[ortant for me. Please help.

Thanks

Frank Rivera, I had a similar problem in my PC. I did solve it this way. First, I recommend you try the Windows error checking:

1. Open “My computer”.

2. Right-click on local disk (C:).

3. Go to “Properties” and select the “Tools” tab.

4. Under “Error Checking” click “Check Now”.

5. You must ensure that you check these options “Automatically fix file system errors” and “Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors”.

6. Click “Start”.

7. Next, select “Schedule disk check”.

8. After that restart your system.

If after following the above steps you still have the same problem, try the Recuva software. You can download it in this link http://www.piriform.com/recuva/download.

This is a possible malware threat. Try running a disk check by right clicking on My Computer>Properties> Tools> Error Checking and then click the Check Now option. See if it will resolve your problem. If it doesn't help, run a anti malware and remove any threats. Try the Malwarebytes software. download it from the CNET website provided below:
