I did as you all suggested: I took ownership of the filres/folders and all I got were the shortcut icons, whcih when clicked replied- "shortcut moved or changed"............When I went to start>search>*.doc or *jpeg - it replied - "problem with Internet explorer - and closed down"?

Checked myfirewall and virus protection all OK with IE (turned my wins firewall off).

Now I am unsure what else I can do to retrieve my old docs and JPEGS?

In addition to the program mentioned by wannabe1 you can also try:

PCI File Recovery, Un-delete Plus, Smart Recovery for Pictures and some others.

Please note: the recovered files must be transferred to another storage device. You install the recovery program on a workable computer, attach your corrupt disk to the computer and save the recovered files either to the working disk or to another storage device.

The process can be very long depending on the level of corruption and the volume of the disk . By very long I mean days, if not weeks. If you find that it takes very long, I would suggest to stop the process after 2-3 hours and check the recovered files. Sometimes they are useless and there is no point to continue.

If the data is very important and you do not succeed, you can contact one of those special data recovery labs for quotation. They can recover almost anything but they are expensive.

Tried most of these but they will find the files but not recovery them, or the programs are too complicated! Any other free programs around that are easy to use and will recovery files from my hard disc?
