  2020 13:31 04 Sep 05

hi my sisters puter would not get past the xp window so i tried to reload xp and do a repair but it ended up xp was reinstlled and so i can't access the data already on the drive. i have been wondering if there is a simple way to retreive the old files. i have seen programs like Hard disk DIY DataRecovery DataBack would that be the way?
many thanks in advance

Try running Drive Rescue click here off a floppy.

I wouldn't hold out too much hope.

Also don't continue to create new files and move bits about as this will overwrite anything that could be saved
