Hello,

According to a technician a surge crashed my HD and had to reinstall windows, I have backups and recover almost everything except these two only files which after using recoverymyfiles software I still cannot find. This software has found lots and lots of things, but not these two files. These were in my documents folder. After windows XP reinstallation, the folder is empty.
I have read here and there that the old folder (different user etc) is still there in the HD.
Can anybody help me with this?
Any hints?
Thank you
Javier.

Hello,

If you have accidentally deleted any files from your Windows Computer, Recycle

Bin, Digital Camera Card, MP3 player, iPod then you can recover the deleted files

using a free application named "Recuva".

Click on the below link and download the file.

Perform "Deep Scan".

Good Luck.
