I have windows xp.
I was chaning things w/ the user accounts and i lost the main one. I think i
switched it to "non-adminitror" mode or something. But all the documents and
stuff are gone. How can i get em back? I tried everything i could but nothing
worked. I've done a search through the computer to see if they are still on
there but nothing shows up. How ever it tells me that i'm using half of my
hard-drive...so the files are on the computer somewhere. Can anyone help me?
Have you tryed system restore, I'm not sure if the Admin account would be
protected (backed-up) or not, but worth a shot.
Hope some of this helps!
