ccm.net/faq/5347-lost-documents-and-media-files-after-system-restore'

I tried this to get lost files after a system restore or boot.
The welcome screen was freezing and I did a restore to try and help clear it up. It helped a bit but It is still freezing and not logging on quickly. And in the process. I lost all my files!

I tried the above steps and didn't have any luck.

Anyone able to help with ideas? I am in a jam and need to get access to my files. Asap

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

To get your data back I suggest you to download Stellar Phoenix Windows data recovery – Home and connect the hard disk into another system. First, recover your data from that drive and then format it for reuse.

Cool, so we can mark this as solved?

Ok, it sounds like you are dealing with a fragged hard drive, or corrupted system files. Boot into safe mode, does it boot faster?

Reverting a fragged drive back does not help the operation, it just makes matter worse. Open up the file manager, how much free space is on the C drive? If it is less than 20% free, then you need to free up some space, defrag the drive, run chkdsk, then SFC /scannow.

Hi,
I have plenty of space on the hard drive 399 free of 465 GB?/

Should I still do the defrag / checkdsk and SFC?
