I'm afraid the docs have probably been overwritten by the new op system

"we have formated" means that you wiped clean all the files on the Harddrive.

Unless you first saved a copy of your My Documents data to a separate media (ext HDD or usb stick or burnt them to cd/dvd) they are gone.

Thanks once again I have managed to recover all the files but this just shaows how good this forum is

It would be useful to know how you managed to recover the files from a formatted HDD so that others with same problem can be helped.

Or maybe you just did an install from Vista to W7 and the files were saved somewhere.
