Hi every body

How can I recover data from a tabla that has been deleted with ZAP.

Thanks a lot

As I know records zapped can not be recalled, because zap executes delete and pack, but you may have a chance to recover the the whole file from hdd before running zap using a recover software if you did not write to much on the hdd.

Hey - I tried that KB article on a foxpro 7.0 table and it didn't work. It restored the correct number of records, but they were filled with garbage. I noticed that the KB article is for foxpro 3.0 and earlier, which might be why.

When you do Zap in a table, a new table is created empty in another position inside your HDD. If you use a software for recover deleted files, you will find your old table and recover the data inside.
I recommend to delete your new table since this new one could use sector of the older one.

This only works if your Zap is recent.

Actually, ZAP sets the RECCOUNT() at 0 and puts and end of file marker just after the table header. If it did a DELETE and PACK, it would take much longer.
