depends on how much you have used your computer since then, in particular how much data moving you have done since then...

Well the file recovery is done and found a lot of files

and I found some shortcuts to the files in Recent Documents

I attached a screenshot of all the things that showed up on Active File Recovery

I don't really know where to find the files if they were recovered

Looks like you need to select the files you want back, and then find an option that lets you recover them. I haven't used that program, so I'm not sure exactly where it is.

Haven't ever had to do this, so sorry - no. Maybe just hang on a bit and see if someone else can recommend one.

not sure if this will work...but try downloading picasa . from here...when you install it it will ask if you want it to search for photos..say yes and it will grab everything and put into the picasa program
