I had to use a system f10 resotre on an hp pvaillion - basically reloads windows to factory settings... now for the fine print they do not tell you...
ALL OF MY Documents are gone.
All program files and driectories are still there (but wil have to reload to activate.
most cricial thing is recovering my documents folder. have not touched or loaded anything for fear of writing over any space.
has anyone run into this and what type of recovery should i do.
i do not need to recover all program files, etc
just what HP in their infinate wisdom was HP thinking?. Talk about making computers that have no consideration for the users. No options for a simple "repair windows" - NEVER AGAIN!! had I known i would have installed a new drive and copied my data off the old one.
nedless to say i have my work cout out for me
OK... how do I wade through to figure what to look for.
any chance that it can restore the folder structures, etc??? literally thousands of docs and pics, media, etc
looks like a cool program - just do not want to waste time doing what does not need to be done
Many thanks for anyone who can help.
