Alright heres the deal. I have an HP computer, usually I don't buy computers by brand I usually either build it myself or have it custom made. I am not a noob here.. so But here is my problem. Yesterday my computer crashed because someone decided to pull out the power cord while I was playing a game. Because of ths my computer wouldn't even be able to fully load, I mean it would get to the interface but lag reallly horribly. So Im like.. lets use this recovery thing at the start (F10). Well it said that the data wouldn't be lost, but to me I cannot find my data! This is a problem since I Had almost 40 gigs of music on the computer, which I really need. So you may be saying ok, well theirs nothing you can do. But whats bothering me, is when I look at the space left on my pc its the same as before the recovery tool. Meaning all that music and files are still here... isn't that so? But I cannot find my folder, or the music or anything. Its like a clean install. All i have left is my installed data like my Americas Army, or Spybot. The rest.. is gone. Can anyone help me? Is their any way to retreive this lost data. Or how do I go about freeing up my space ? Edit: Somethign else to add. I have all my programs. They appear on the desktop I can use them like winamp. But when I go to Add/Remove programs they do not appear their. These programs are from my previous setup before the recovery.
