    If you re-installed it using the recovery disc then there is no way you can recover anything. The hard drive will have been wiped of all your personal data.

    Good lesson to learn about backing up all pix, films, programmes etc. to disc or other hard drive. Sorry.

    loooooooooooool

    This is why we say to people COPY IMPORTANT FILES TO AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE OR CD OR DVD.

    You never know when your computer is going to crash or have a virus, so if your important files are already on an external hard drive or CD/DVD then if you have to reinstall Windows you dont lose the only copy of your files.

    YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY BACKUPS.

    Files can still possibly be recovered after a install, formatting a drive does not fully delete all files, try some software like recuva and see what it finds.
