Recently, about a week ago, my PC froze so I had no choice but to manually shut it down. After I rebooted it, any files aside from program icons and windows explorer icons were gone (i.e folders, videos, pictures all gone). I am no expert on how to recover these. I had some really important, and meaningful files from there.
I tried system restore and it didnt work.
Any help on how to recover these? Please, and thank you for any help!
