I had scheduled for a disk scan and the computer restarted and scanned for errors in DOS. however upon restarting the computer seems to have lost some files. How can I restore for the lost files ? Is there a software that get back the missing links and make them whole again? How long can this take ?

In every anti-virus software there is option to restore the files which are deleted by this antivirus. Once the antivirus complete the scan it shows what are the files were virus affected and what actions the antivirus taken. From there you will get an option to restore the deleted file if you think that is not the virus. Even later also you can restore the deleted files from the antivirus setting page. But after a specific duration antivirus delete the suspected files completely from the system and after that you cannot restore them.
 
If you are unable to restore the deleted files from the antivirus setting the to get back the system files you can repair your operating system. To repair your operating system insert the operating system DVD or USB drive and go for booting option. There you will get an option to repair the OS other than formatting the OS. Choose repair option. It will install all the missing system files which are required for the operating system.

I don’t think there should be missing files after checking your drive for errors with CHKDSK. When you use CHKDSK to check or scan your drive for errors, it will basically check your drive’s file system for errors along with the protected system files. Problem with files that may result to getting deleted is when there are cross-linked files.

This is a kind of file system error that corrupts the contents of an existing file by writing data from another file into the same cluster. Now, if you found missing files on your computer after the scan, it is still possible to recover them but there is no guarantee that the files are error free or the contents are still the same.

To try recovering those deleted or missing files, download PC Tools Performance Toolkit. Once installed, start PC Tools then go to “Recovery” tab and select “Recover Lost Files”. On the next screen, select the scan type and the drive you wish to recover the files from. When you are fine with the scan options, click “Start Scan” to begin scanning the drive.

At the end of the scan, see if you can locate the missing files.
