Right, so a month ago, I downloaded Windows 7, and I thought I put my My Documents in my Drive D so it wouldn't be erased, but it did. My IT repair man has recovered about 5 of my 1000 documents and I am worried sick that I wont be able to recover any of it back. Any ideas are highly appreciated!

Are you saying you had a different OS installed and then you installed Win 7, reformatting the hard drive along the way - loosing all your files and now you need to recover them? If so you will need some data recovery software but be aware the more you use your hard drive the more data you will probably permanently lose - if it is not lost already. Please reply to say what you mean fully and I will try to help.

Hi !

You can use a third party data recovery software to recovery your important data. one of such a good data recovery software is Kernel for data recovery. it works very good and powerful too.

Thank you for your concern, but I just realized that it is impossible to retrieve my files because my IT repair man took my hard drive to his personal office and installed Windows 7 on himself, so wouldn't that mean that it wouldn't be possible to get them back?

Not necessarily. The data recovery will still work, assuming you've been given back the hard drive that was originally yours. Not insinuating anything about your tech guy, but there are stories online about people who take hard drives away to do this, that and the other with them, then end up returning them to the wrong customer.

Hi !

Dear alrighty123 !

You can still recover your all data from your hard disk even you formatted it. By the help of Kernel data recovery software you can easily get all your data from formatted hard disk.This software is very powerful and easy to use. You can find it from http://www.harddiskdatarecovery.in

Thanks
