Hi, My friend was having trouble with internet Explorer and her PC was running sluggish . she has XP. she decided to do a recovery by rebooting and pressing F10. Her PC is back to Factory Default but she has lost all her programs and files . Is it possible to recover her lost files? Kind Regards

Meanwhile: Download Recuve onto another Machine > Put it onto a USB Key > run it from that. Don't use the laptop for anything at all, in the meantime. Every thing it does will tend to overwrite the old files.

If she has reset to Factory Condition it is a commonly held belief that the Files are irrecoverable. I have never heard anything that refutes that belief
