Having had much trouble with my HD and not being able to boot up XP.I ran the the original XP disc which I have done before,no probs.However this time it actually reinstalled itself from scratch and formatted the drive etc as a clean install.Will there be any trace of old files on the drive? Are there any free progs that might recover such files?

You could try running Drive Rescue click here from a floppy or USB drive.

I wouldn't hold out too much hope though...

If you've formatted it I suspect it's gone. Unless you work for the CIA.
