Found 8th Oct 2010
Had to do a windows repair on a laptop, and it's deleted all of the files on the laptop! Laptop wouldn't boot so was last option unless getting a new hdd.

Is there anyway to get these back at all?

  1. Misc
  2. Windows

which version of windows? when using windows 7 it puts the old files in windows.old folder if not try the advanced search function include hidden files and see if that helps failing that you could try a data recovery program
