Not sure if any one can help, just wanted an answer or suggestions, before waisting my money on some Data recovery software, that either didn't work, my information is lost forever, or that I am incapable of understanding.
Running windows Xp on a Gateway, 506GR Pentium 4.
We had a power failure during my PC booting up and I guess corrupted some files, couldn't boot into anything, so did a system resotre. PC is working fine, but of course lost alot of emails, address's, Genealogy information, pictures, etc, had done a partial back up in April, but not everyting. So even though drive was reformatted, and programs reinstalled, is that old information anywhere retrievable still?
And i know Backup, backiup, I always yell at my friends and family, just somehow lost track of time, I know no excuses. Believe me has been a BIG lesson learned.
Thanks for your time
