How to Revert Your File & Folder by “FOUND.000”

How do you feel when you copy files between partitions, when you download software when you write in Word when you suddenly have a power failure, Windows fails to respond, or the system automatically reboots? How do you feel when the screen goes black? We can only hope that important text will not be lost after the reboot. However, many times things don’t go according to plan. After rebooting, your original files have been “lost” except one by one in the folder “FOUND.000” similar to “file0001.chk”. Don’t worry, there’s a good chance that these files will contain the important data you’re looking for, just restore them to their original state (restore CHK files to different types of files that you can recognize).


Windows 2000/XP Framework V2.0 and above

CHKResume software


Search Baidu for a software download called “CHKResume.” CHKResume does not need to be installed, just run it.

By default, CHKResume can restore MP3, JPG, BMP, MPG, DOC, and GIF file types, but since the author has taken the software into account, you can manually add your own file types that can be restored. Next, we add support for RAR compression files for CHKResume and use it to restore CHK files.
Use Notepad to open the file.type file in CHKResume directory, and add the file type according to the rule of “the first six bytes of file header + space + file extension”. For example, add RAR file to support “526172 RAR”, and save the modified file.type file.

Run CHKResume, select the directory where you want to save the CHK files, enter the file naming rules (automatically generated CHK files are usually named after the “File + four-digit. CHK” rule), fill in the start and end Numbers of the file in the two numeric input boxes next to it, and click the “Start Conversion” button to restore the file.
