Hello,
My pc would not boot properly but kept repeating itself. I took it to a computer shop who managed to get it booted but I now find all My Pictures, My documents, My music has not loaded. The hard drive was split in 2 and one of them appears to have no bites in it but it says it is full. Can I retrieve my data and if so how?
Mike

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Can you see a folder called windows.old anywhere in your PC? Go into Control Panel>Folder Options, click the View tab and scroll to "Show hidden files and folders" and click the radio button beside it. Scroll further down and untick "Hide protected system files and folders (Recommended)" . Click Apply and OK your way out then restart the system and have another look around.
