My computer had an upgrade of MS office 2003-2007 thru another user account. After I login back to my account, all my documents are lost. Same goes for my outlook personal folder.

I realise "My Document folder" has changed its location with

c:/documents and settings/<username>.<domain>

instead of the previous

c:/documents and settings/<unsername>

Both folder still exist however both folder does not contain my documents that i have saved before the upgrade. I only have one account and one password. I have tried using recovery software but the files are not shown in the list of deleted files. So i believe that my files are simply 'hidden'.

Please Help Me!!!

PS:
In the Move Documents box, click Yes to move your documents to the new location, or click No to leave your documents in the original location.
