Hey guys,

 

Got quite a big issue here. I got my windows completely reset because I didn't do it since I bought my PC (over a year). Well the fun part is that I forgot to save 1 file. One of the most important files. My doc with a bunch of game keys. I know, I know...I am stupid. But that's it. It got deleted, and I have no idea how to get it back. Is there any way to restore it? (tried to do with easeUS but I didn't find anything). The file was on the desktop. 

 

I'll reward with a couple keys whoever helps me get this file back, cause it would be really important. 

 

Cheers!

If by "completely reset" you mean that Windows was reinstalled on the same drive, then there's not much hope for recovering that file.  Odds are that some or all of the file was overwritten during the reinstall.  At the very least, the entire file system structure was recreated from scratch, so even if all of the parts of the document are still on the drive, there's no file system data left to indicate that those blocks of data are all one file.

 

Having said that, I've tried many different drive recovery programs during my decades in IT.  My personal favorite in recent years is MiniTool Power Data Recovery.  It seems to find far more usable data than most of the competitors.  I recently recovered a corrupted external drive (it was physically good) that was unrecoverable with several other mainstream recovery programs. There's a free version that has some limitations, the key ones being that you cannot resume a recovery (you must rescan every time you run it) and you can only recover 1 GB max (both obviously designed to get you to cough up $69 to buy it).  Since your missing file would be well under a gig, you might give it a try:  https://www.powerdat...cense-type.html

Well, this sucks.  Meager selection right now, but the couple of games I want don't apply the credit.  The only one I tried that does is NBA 2K14, and I'm not paying $25 for that.  That's a bad job by you, Amazon!

NBA 2K14 is a different promotional credit...that one came out long enough ago that you probably don't remember it, but it's still hiding in your Amazon account.  I think that one was a $10 discount.

Why is Tony two-timing us with that ungrateful slut Reddit?

I like to abbreviate things from time to time, but is it really that much more difficult to spell out Amazon in its entirety?  Every time I see "AMZN" I read it as amazin'.  And caps? :???:

 

AMZN is Amazon's stock symbol on the NASDAQ, which is why it's capitalized.  I may know what it means when I see it, but it bothers me too.

Hey Tony, both the Sleeping Dogs Bundle and the Sleeping Dogs DLC Pack are showing as currently unavailable.  However, all of the content in those packs is showing as available when you look at them individually.  Did you guys just run out of bundle keys?

 

 

 

They were configured incorrectly, we just fixed :). Might take a bit for the fix to take affect.

 

Cheers,

Tony

 

Hey Tony, the Sleeping Dogs DLC Pack was never fixed, so it was unavailable the entire time it was on sale.  Since it's going to be on sale again on the 7th, I thought you might want to try fixing it again.
