I recently had to do a PC recovery on my HP computer. It wasn't a full recovery where it deletes everything and starts again, it was a partial recovery which is supposed to keep all my files safe.

Now my hard drive C: is showing 23GB free space (180GB Drive) but I don't know and can't find all the folders I had on my 'desktop' and in 'my documents' before the recovery.

I have gone through the normal unhide folders routine and tried a couple of small programs but had no luck.

The missing files must total around 130GB and are there somewhere.

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

This is when you should have backed up first...sorry for the lecture but lesson learnt.
Just for future reference,with that much important data....treat yourself to Acronis True Image.

Ok a few programs to try;
