Re: Any way to unerase files on an Archos?
From the very moment you lose the files, DO NOT USE THE DISK, as any write
to the disk (bookmarks, playlists, etc) risk writing to a sector which is
now flagged as unused. WRITE NOTHING TO THE DISK.
From there you can hook it up to a PC and run one of any number of
disk/file recovery utils - I haven't needed one since the Norton Utils 8
for DOS so I'm not going to name anything - but a google for "file recovery
unerase" (no quotes) will spew out any number of results.
