Hello, I'm glad to have come across this forum! I hope someone can help me with my issue. I wasn't sure where to place this question, so I chose under XP, since that's what I have. I had to do a system recovery and now I'm trying to locate all my old files, programs, folders, pictures, etc...At first I thought it was all lost, but some of the program icons are still there, yet the programs won't open. I tried system restore, but there is no date available before the day my comp. messed up. I searched for all the old files, but nothing turns up. Can someone give me advice on this? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
