  3. Did you look on the C: drive for the files? It you used a destructive System Recovery you can kiss your files goodbye.

  4. if you used the system recovery that came on the disks that came with your laptop, then your files are gone, the point of a sys recovery is to restore your computer back to factory settings so its exactly like as it was when you got it...

    you may be lucky and recover a few files using a file recovery program, tbh though most of them will probably recover and be corrupt.

    Wait a second I want my photos back too and I do not know if it is destructive or not what so ever. I do know though that this was not done with a disk it was a recovery program on my computer on the start up. This is an HP computer btw.
