WD WD1003FZEX that customer missing a lot of DWG files on

Sat Aug 10, 2019 10:53 am

Hello. I have a WD WD1003FZEX that customer missing a lot of DWG files on.
This is the customer's description of what happened:

How did the error occur?
Data seems to have disappeared after repeated transfers from Pc to Pc. Physical disconnection / connection in 2 different machines.

Which files are most important?
Basically everything, but there are technical drawings here, including from the program Autocad. Here are several man-years of data that we might lose.
We hope to have everything saved.

The problem may be that chkdsk has been run.

some software recommendations that may help in this case

I know .. but when the customer already made that mistake, it's too late to tell them .. but maybe they learned a lesson about making a backup next time

Usually they are converted to a folder with the extension chk.
You can try CHK-Back: https://trcdatarecovery.com/software-apps/chk-back
