I was wondering if anyone knows anything about data recovery?(I hope this is posted in the right forum.)
I did a reinstall of my windows XP operating system using the recovery CD on my old Compac Presario Laptop. I had photos and music stored on it that seem to have disappeared?!
When I right-click on my local disk C drive, it says the total size is 27.9GB while there is 2.5GB of free space(File system NTFS).
I have been through all the folders in C drive using windows explorer and there are some old photos and document files but that barely accounts for 1GB of information.- I'm wondering how I can access the other 23-24GB?(I'm presumming its still there as it says the total size of the drive is 27.9GB while 2.5GB is free so there should be 24.4GB somewhere?? Is that right??)
I have been using google and see there are data recovery programmes that might help? Or am I better taking in to see some professionals?
If anyone has any ideas or input that would be fantastic!
