Download Testdisk - click here onto a different PC

Connect your hard drive using to that PC and run Testdisk. Will take a while to scan the disk, possibly overnight.

Hi! I wasn't at home this morning,So when I got there i found that my brother installed a new windows OS on the hard drive , Do you think there is still a chance to get some of the filles back, I mean should I try what you told me to do? , or I should just forget about them´┐Ż/p>

You could try running Testdisk but be prepared for it to take a long time and it may not recover the files you want since new data has now been written to the drive.
