Here's the situation. I inadvertently did a system recovery on my HP desktop pc (runs windows XP). It shows all the signs of that's what happened according to research I've done -- the computer is back to factory defaults, my users are removed , my data is gone from My Documents folder, some shortcuts are still there for applications installed after purchase but not all of them work, etc. I did not intend to do a System recovery I was trying to enter in safe mode but hit the wrong button.

So I've pretty much given up on retrieving my data files.

HOWEVER, HERE'S MY NEXT STEP ISSUE: Why does my C: drive say that I am running low on disk space when I can't even see or attempt to delete the lost files. Is there any way to retrieve that storage capacity? If I reload my back-up files, most of the available memory will be taken. What can I do? It seems like that is the amount of memory I should have on my C: drive if I still had all of my lost data files, but I don't have them!

PLEASE advise....
