  1. Tell her to install and run recuva. It may be able to recover some files.

    It sounds like she may have accidentally booted into the restore partition. That would restore it back to factory settings.
  2. Thanks for advice Aford, hopefully that can retrieve her lost docs, a lot of her business info is lost so quite important info included
  3. You're welcome. Good luck.
