Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RS724G PC Desktop

2 Answers

Computer restored after freezing up using F10 key

There was no way to back up the c drive before restoring and yes, I'm one of those stupid people who had no back up. Is there a utility disk I can find that will restore those files? My tax return was just done on this system and I've lost all data files and stored emails on this computer.
Any ideas that can help??
I've learned my lesson, I will be backing up the system periodically.
Thanks Maris

You can try a free data recovery program first to scan your drive and see what may be still there to recover. That is the important thing you need to know that the information you want is ACTUALLY still on the physical drive itself. The next step would be to determine if it is recoverable at all. Try one of these free programs and see what you get. It would help if you know at least PART of the file name you will be searching for as well.
