    Yes I did add recuva. I will try that when I get home late this evening. If that cannot find my files am I pretty much screwed?

    Hard to tell. Recuva is pretty good.

    You can take a screenshot and post it up. It is a touch fiddly, click the menu item that says shot, then

    Click image for larger version

    click start and it will minimise

    Click image for larger version

    When you are ready to take the screenie, ctrl+F11 and it will pop up asking where you want to save the pic to.

    Okay well I will definitely try recuva when I get home and post a screenshot if it doesnt work... I hope to god it does, I never made a backup of my entire drive(stupid me I know) but never had any problems ever on win7.

    Thank you everyone for your help thus far. When I have the time I will go through and rep a bunch

    Here are some screens of my drives available and what I see in Recuva... In recuva I see a bunch of random package files among other random .dll and stuff... not really any files I recognize...

    Edit: The scan I did in Recuva was the basic scan, I just selected the options for a deep scan and scan for non-deleted files (for recovery from damaged or reformatted disks)

    Edit 2: I did the deep scan and it found almost 3 million files, i see some pictures and music files. I would say 90% I have no clue what they are... Should I just copy all these files to an external drive??

    Would say, most of your DATA will be in the folder called USERS.
