Help Deleted Desktop Files in Frontpage


E

efrance

I was trying to create a new sample website so I started the wizard and had
the site save to my desktop. Once it opened up in frontpage it had every
single file in my desktop in there so I deleted the desktop files that were
in my web. Big problem as now all of those desktop files are deleted from
not just the program but are completely removed from my computer's desktop.
Any thoughts on how to get them back? System restore did not work.

You need to ask in a newsgroup for your specific operating system.

The only reliable way back is from a recent backup. When you delete anything using FrontPage it is gone forever.
if there is no backup, find an unerase program (Google) - best to use a different computer to avoid overwriting the remnants of the deleted files, and see what can be recovered.

Ron: It appears the OP deleted more than just FP files.

That's what I thought was said - but when FrontPage deletes _anything_, it's gone.
Sounds like instead of a new website ON the desktop, the whole desktop was incorporated in the new website - and the non-web files were deleted.

Exactly. He needs to check with a newsgroup about his O/S. But, my guess is:
it's reformat/reload time.

This program saved my bacon more than once recovering files. Even after a
reformat as well:

http://www.recovermyfiles.com/

(usually nothing is ever totally gone from a hard drive unless the hard
drive itself is physically broken. It may not be possible to retrieve
without the right software..but in all likelihood it is still there.)

Gotta run now... the black helicopters are after me :)

Yes, that is exactly what is happening. Instead of a new website saved on
the desktop it created one incorporating all that was on the desktop. I've
tried since setting up a new website and saving in another separate folder
location on my server and am getting the same problem. It is incorporating
everything from the previos files. For example...if I'm trying to save it to
C:/my documents/websites/new site - all of the documents that are in the my
documents and websites folders are also showing up within my website folder
list. Any idea how I can change this? I have no idea why it's now doing
this as I havent' had this problem before.

I have asked my IT consultant to look into the deleted desktop files to see
if he can restore any of them. Thanks!

that happens when you create a website on your desktop but forget to create
a folder for it there, sooooo when you next open your website your entire
desktop becomes part of the website...not a nice thing...I know I did it
once. Took quite a while to fix it.

When it happenned to me:
open Windows Explorer
Browse to the Desktop - In Windows 7 this is at
C:\users\<username>\desktop,
in Windows XP it's at
c:\documents and Settings\<username>\desktop
Search for hidden and system files and folders named _vti* in the desktop folder
Delete them

Whwn you create a new website, do NOT create on the desktop - I create a folder on E:\ named websites\websitename
In the New Site dialogue change the location to E:\websites\websitename

If you do not have a E:, the use C:\websites as the starting point. This keeps everything safe, uhnless you accidently create the website in C:\ (the root folder on C: )
Create the folder first in Windows Explorer, and use the Browse button in the New Site dialogue to find it.

It happens that efrance formulated :
Because even when I setup a new folder prior it
is still opening up with everything else in
there.
Could you tell me how you fixed it please?


Rob Giordano said:
that happens when you create a website on
your desktop but forget to create a folder
for it there, sooooo when you next open your
website your entire desktop becomes part of
the website...not a nice thing...I know I did
it once. Took quite a while to fix it.

Yes, that is exactly what is happening.
Instead of a new website saved on the
desktop it created one incorporating all
that was on the desktop. I've tried since
setting up a new website and saving in
another separate folder location on my
server and am getting the same problem. It
is incorporating everything from the
previos files. For example...if I'm trying
to save it to C:/my documents/websites/new
site - all of the documents that are in the
my documents and websites folders are also
showing up within my website folder list.
Any idea how I can change this? I have no
idea why it's now doing this as I havent'
had this problem before.

I have asked my IT consultant to look into
the deleted desktop files to see
if he can restore any of them. Thanks!

:

This program saved my bacon more than once
recovering files. Even after a reformat as
well:

(usually nothing is ever totally gone from
a hard drive unless the hard drive itself
is physically broken. It may not be
possible to retrieve without the right
software..but in all likelihood it is still
there.)

Gotta run now... the black helicopters are
after me :)

It may not be that bad, but probably worse
- the desktop folder itself normally only
has a few shortcuts and data files
(undoubtably irreplaceable), but a
reformat/reinstall will not replace them.

Tom Willett formulated on Monday :
Exactly. He needs to check with a
newsgroup about his O/S. But, my guess
is: it's reformat/reload time.

That's what I thought was said - but
when FrontPage deletes _anything_, it's
gone. Sounds like instead of a new
website ON the desktop, the whole
desktop was incorporated in the new
website - and the non-web files were
deleted. -- Ron Symonds - Microsoft MVP

Ron: It appears the OP deleted more

The only reliable way back is from a
recent backup. When you delete
anything using FrontPage it is gone
forever. if there is no backup, find
an unerase program (Google) - best to
use a
different computer to avoid overwriting
the remnants of the deleted files, and
see what can be recovered.

efrance formulated the question :
I was trying to create a new sample
website so I started the wizard and
had the site save to my desktop.
Once it opened up in frontpage it had
every single file in my desktop in
there so I deleted the desktop files
that were in my web. Big problem as
now all of those desktop files are
deleted from not just the program
but are completely removed from my
computer's desktop. Any thoughts on
how to get them back? System restore
did not work.
