    Uninstalled a program through control panel and now my D drive is wiped clean?


    I recently installed CAD Earth to my D drive but it didn't install into a folder like I wanted it to, so I went into control panel to uninstall it. Now every single folder and file that I had on the drive is gone. Not in recycle bin, gone. I've tried using Recuva but it's only pulling up the file names, when I open the files they are all corrupted. Is there anything I can do? I had a lot of schoolwork on that drive and it wasn't automatically backing up so its all gone.

    :)

    How can I uninstall a program that isn't under C drive?

    I installed a program in my drive D but when the time came that I wish to uninstall the program, I realized that this was not listed in my control panel. How can I uninstall the program?

  3. can't uninstall program

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. I appreciate your effort in resolving this issue.

    - Did you try un-installing the program from programs and features?

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Repairing or removing programs

    To uninstall programs, go to Settings.
    • On the Start menu, then select Settings.
    • Select System > Apps & features.
    • Select the program, then select Uninstall. Some apps that are built in to Windows can’t be uninstalled.
    • Follow the directions on the screen.
    If you are still unable to uninstall the program, follow the steps below.

    • In Search, enter Control Panel and select Control Panel.
    • Select Programs > Programs and Features, then select the program.
    • Select the program, then select Uninstall. Some apps that are built in to Windows can’t be uninstalled.
    • Follow the directions on the screen.

    Let us know the status.

    Regards,

    Uninstalled a program through control panel and now my D drive is wiped clean?

    Deleting a program that doesn't appear in the Control Panel when "Uninstall a program" is selected

    I need to uninstall PDF Pro 10 so that I can install a newer version, but the program doesn't appear in the list of programs when "Uninstall a program" is selected from the Control Panel. I received the following instructions from PDF Pro 10 technical support:
    "You need to manually uninstall by deleting all of the software's folders and registry from your drive. Please ask assistance from your administrator."

    My Windows 10 PC is a home computer. What do I need to do to delete the PDF Pro 10 program that doesn't appear in the list of programs when "Uninstall a program" is selected from the Control Panel?
