  2. Major defect with WM6 - Cut & Paste, then Cancel resulting in lost files!!

    Reproduction steps

    IPAQ 214, with WM6 classic, CE OS 5.2.1711 (build 18165.0.5.0)

    PC - WinXP Pro, SP2

    • Connect ipaq to PC via USB cable.
    • Select mulitiple files from ipaq via Win Explorer on PC
    • Cut and paste files to a folder on PC (by drag & drop whilst holding Shift key)
    • Whilst files are copying, click cancel (on PC dialogue box)
    Expected results

    Cut and paste operation ceases, leaving any uncopied files from source (i.e. files should remain on ipaq)

    Actual results

    Cut and paste operation ceases, and all files are MISSING from source.

    Result/impact

    I have lost all my data.

    Any advice on data recovery?

    If anyone has any advice for me regarding how to recover the data I would be very much obliged.

    Best regards

    Mark

  3. How recovery cut and paste lost data?

    1. Steps to reproduce

    (I'm not sure, that I remember my steps 100%)

    I wanted to move from folder A to folder B my photos (~20 photos). In Windows Explorer Right_Click to folder A → Cut → I move in Windows Explorer to folder B → Ctrl+V. At the same time I cut other folder to folder B. After a few minutes I see, that I'm not have my photos in folder A and folder B. I need my photos and I try recovery it.

    UPD: Now I enable TeraCopy application and get similar problem is reproduced for me. I select folder Drake in Windows Explorer → I press Ctrl+X → in other folder I press Ctrl+V. I get popup:

    data lost after cut the files and paste into new folder during updating my windows 10 5bDTKvG.png
    :

    Now I can not find folder Drake in my computer.

    2. Not helped

    1. I pressed many times Ctrl+Z, but I don't see my photos in folder A and folder B,
    2. I did not find my lost photos in recycle bin,
    3. I did not find my lost photos in temp folder,
    4. I did not find my photos in my computer using native Windows Search and Agent Rasnack program,
    5. I did not find my photos using Free Clipboard Viewer program,
    6. I check my computer for viruses use HerdProtect — I have not viruses.
    7. Right_Click → Properties → Previous versions → I did not find previous versions of my folder A and folder B.
    8. I did not find my photos, running full recovery search of

    3. Questions

    1. How can I even try to recover my photos?
    2. Are built-in or third-party methods without lost data use Cut operation?

    4. Do not offer

    1. Please, do not tell me, that I had copy files from folder A to folder B and then delete files from folder A. Now I understood it for all life.

    5. Environment

    • Windows 32-bit 10.0.14393
    • TeraCopy 2.27

    Thanks.

    data lost after cut the files and paste into new folder during updating my windows 10

    Files gone after cut/paste then undo (control+z)

    I seem to have lost my files after doing the following steps. Is there a way for me to find the files?

    • I created a new folder in "Pictures" called "MomsPhone" C:\Users\willj\Pictures\MomsPhone
    • I selected the picture files from the android phone's DCIM folder, right clicked and chose "Cut"
    • Right clicked in the "MomsPhone" folder and chose "Paste"
    • In the "Pictures" directory, pressed control+z (undo)
    After the above the "MomsPhone" directory is gone, the only folder in "Pictures" that was created today is "New folder" which is empty. The files from the original device (pictures from android phone's DCIM folder) are also gone (result of the cut/paste)

    Edit: I use a Windows 10 HP with a Samsung SSD
