OMG!, I cannot believe I did this! I did a system recovery and I think I lost all my FILES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so upset right now! I been crying!

Is there anyway to undo that and get my files back?!?!?!?!?!
I lost family pictures! MP3's, all my documents!!!!!!!!
OMG!

I have an HP system and it's a built in systems recovery. OMG I think I lost everything NNOOOO!


HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! :whistling:


Ok, I have a second hard drive in my computer and I have been doing the PC INSPECTOR™ smart recovery system scan for TWO DAYS, just for my BMP pictures.

Is there anyway to make this go faster?

Also the program only supports these files:
.jpg, .amr, .tif, .bmp, .gif, Canon .crw , Fuji .raf , RICOH .raw, Olympus .orf (E-XX), Olympus .orf (C5050), Nokia 3gp, Kodak .dcr, Minolta .mrw, Nikon .nef (D1H/D1X), Nikon .nef (D2H/D2X), Nikon .nef (E5000/E5700), Sigma - Foveon .x3f, mp4, QuickTime .mov (Konica Minolta). Video files in .avi, QuickTime .mov format and audio files in .wav, .dss format can also be recovered.

I also need to get Word Documents, Notepad Documents, Wordpad Documents, I also have pictures in JPEG files as well. Is it the same as JPG?

The videos I made and I want to get back are actually named .AVI so this is perfect! The rest I can just reupload from my DVDs. However I am worried about the other files I listed above.

So anyone else can help please let me know! :blink:

Try the other programme, install it on this drive, the warning about that is usually so you don't install anything which will overwrite the data you are trying to recover

You are unlikely to recover much though as the restore would have cleared the drive

But how come the GB space is still the same as before I did the system restore?
The only difference is about 3GBs more.
Are DVD files big?
how do I go about doing this with the other program? I dont understand it.
