Once set back to "Factory settings" that's everything gone!It reverts the computer to the way it was when new so all your files etc will no longer be on the computer.Had you backed them up to an external drive or dvd's?

Are you sure everything is gone on reverting to factory settings. Makes all the suggestions for removing whatever when flogging your PC seem like overkill. You might try something like RECUVA which is free make sure you download the free bit link text
