    OS data usage comes up red instead of blue! Need help

    My computer just crashed and i had to Refresh. I chose to try to recover my data and when the computer was done refreshing only some of the files i had were saved. Almost all of my software was gone and missing so i just figured i would have to re install it all. Part way though, it said i had no more data and could not figure out why but when i went to my computer, the data/os said it was full and was highlighted in red. I feel that my data is still there but when going into the folders the files and programs don't show up. Anyone have a fix! I've lost a lot of data and i need to know how to ether recover it or just forgo and empty it so i can begin to re-install.

Do PC-to-PC file transfers count towards cable data usage?
Just curious ... do PC-to-PC file transfers count towards cable Internet service usage? For instance, if I move 10 GB of data from one PC to another in my Homegroup, is that 10 GB counted as part of the 100GB+ of cable data that I've used? Thank you! :)
