I got my IT repair specialist to take my computer over to his office and install the new windows 7 onto my desktop computer. When I got it back, there was a problem, so he came back to my house, and the moment he arrived I was moving my folder (filled with important documents) to my D drive so that no matter what it would be safe. But the repair specialist said it was fine if he just shut down the computer and take it away just like that, so I let him. I got my computer back, and the whole folder was missing. He was able to recover thousands of files, but none of them were indeed the ones I lost. Actually, in one of the many documents he was able to recover, there was my folder but when I clicked on it, I got the message:

D:/Users/(my name) refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.

I would be incredibly great full for any ideas or suggestions.
