Recover files after returning to factory settings

  inspironi 20:25 23 Feb 2008

I have Vista operating sytem and recently it froze. I had to return it to factory settings but had not backed up recent documents. Can anybody tell me if it is possible to recover files after this event? Would be most grateful for advice.

If you havent backed up theres a good chance you have lost your files. However, I lost everything once on my old P(XP) and hadnt created a back up. I took it to PC World and they placed the PC on another PC and made it a slave so the files were restored. They usaully charge for this but I sweet talked them round as I had paid over £300 for an insurnace plan, (which doesnt cover software though) hence, important to create back up. Im no expert at all so maybe someone else to explain the slave procedure to you.
