    However repair install usually requires you to reinstall drivers and a few things.. It's not a big deal but maybe try the safe modes first above posts

    files should still be in folders.. they just might not be installed.. but you still have files if you did the repair install..

    In other words, during a repair install, you gave the option to keep files and as long as you select that, you should still have your programs..

    That's what I just experienced very recently with someone else doing a repair install.. They still had their programs.. So I'm not sure why you "lost anything.."

    Unless you didn't select "keep files" etc...
