Help finding lost folders.

I have done a fresh install of Windows XP - Not a Format. I have lost some files and folders can they be found again? I hope they can cos' although most have gone there are some files that were there before the fresh install which are still there.

I wish I was the guru on this one!

All I did was find it, use it and recommend it! And that was the media recovery one - 'Smart Recovery'

Seriously, though, but a daft question I know... Have you downloaded the correct one of the multiple choice of programs? You need to use the top one of the list - 'File Recovery'. I've not tried that one!

Now, if that is the best I can offer, it shows that a guru I ain't.

But good luck.


oops i downloaded smartrecovery!
