    Since my harddrive crashed unexpectedly, and even took my back-up USB
    drive with it, I have lost both my Fed and NJ turbo tax files. Does
    anyone know if it's possible to recover them since I filed (thru
    Intuit) electronically..?

    Thanks in advance

    Well, that depends on "how" the hard drive crashed (did your OS die or
    was it really a hardware HD failure???). The data could still be there
    and a careful reinstall/system recovery/use-crashed-as-
    slave-to-new-drive could recover it. (also, XP, Win 98, NT???)

    (and USB is not the greatest *persistent* storage medium, not rubbing
    it, just emphasizing)

    Andrew - I think he was asking if he could recover the information from
    INTUIT, since he had used them to file; not from his on machine. (I could
    be wrong here, but that's the way I read his original post)

    Thanks for the feedback..
    First, the hardware on my machine was OK. ie, I reinstalled XP and
    have been working fine since. I have tried MULTIPLE recovery sw, ie EZ
    recovery, on track, Norton Util, and none of them seem to be able to
    find the lost files.

    Second, yes, my question is whether or not I can get the soft copy
    files I transmitted via intuit BACK to me.. I know I can file a form
    with the IRS and get a copy for $39..but I have multiple years of data
    that (carry forward losses for example) that are probably not going to
    show up on a fed hardcopy.

    Any help is greatly appreciated...

    A quick search for "recovery" on turbotax.com reveals the answer is no.

    You can only get your return back if you used TurboTax for the Web;
    in that case, Intuit stores your return on its servers. See

    Maybe a request to the IRS for a copy?

    The only thing you transmitted to Intuit was the required filing. You
    can get the last three years in transcript form free from the IRS. The
    charge you quoted was for photocopies, but transcripts give all the
    esential info, including loss carryforwards.

    Charlie:
    Forgive my ignorance..but what does transcript form mean..?? ie, what
    does it even look like and will it have the essentials I need to
    rebuild. I guess for $39 am I getting MORE that the transcripts, and
    if not photocopies, what does it look like..

    Thank you very much..

    hard drive crash and recovering files

    The best thing would have been to send out your crashed hard drive and usb stick to a reputable data recovery company. Here is a good company with great information and a shipping link with instructions on the top
