    System Restore Deleted Files Personal file


    Hi

    I have window 8 pro 64 bit machine. I had to hardboot the system due to hang. After the hardboot i was not able to reboot again. I did start up repair and finally i did a system restore. The system restore was succesfull but when i logged in i lost my personla files saved inside C drive and also lost the Pst files. Now all the application has issue. Like autocad, photoshop.

    I used some recovery software to recover the files. But most of the files are lost.

    Request help to get the data.

    Thanks

    System restore shouldnt touch your personal files unless they were saved on the c drive outside of your personal directory.

    You have pretty much already done what you can do to restore the files you are missing. If you cant find them it is likely because the data has already been overwritten by something else and is now irretrievable. You might be able to use a program like Recuva or GetDataBack to get the rest of it, but I would say that its doubtful.
