got a fresh problem... recently installed a new broadband modem. then shortly afterwards the computer wouldnt load correctly a few times so the computer automatically took me to a reformat option. i did this with the knowledge that i had 2 hard drives, one of them with all my music and fotos, and the other with programs, OS etc. the reformat formatted the drive with all the programs and OS as i hoped and then reinstalled Vista. It left my music and fotos alone. but i forgot that i had left university work in "My documents" which was on the now formatted hard drive. i have heard about ways of retrieving data after a format. but what are the best ways to go about it? i only need to retreive about 100 MB of word nd excel files. Thanks in advance.
if you have ritten a new os over the top of the deleted documents then your chances are far from none. you could search the net for some "undelete" free programs but thats the best you will be able to do
