How to recover lost pictures and files on my computer.
Lost documents and pictures on desktop. My computer was not working it kept freezing up after little bit of time. I started to worry about it crashing. So I opened up ‘my documents’ and dragged two folders onto the desktop. The first was pictures. The second was documents. I was going to burn dvd’s- to back up all my information. Before I had the chance- the computer froze again. I turned it off- and than back on. After it booted up the screen was like the first day I had it. No folders- no files. But- they all were there when I went in ’search’ mode. Except, the two folders I had dragged on to the desktop. I called Gateway and explained the situation. The guy had me do a system restore- which put my computer back 6 days prior. Everything came back folders- desktop screen saver- everything- except those two folders. I told the gateway guy this- he said I probable had a trojan horse virus. He suggested I put in the gateway reboot cd (wiping clean my computer). I said I couldn’t do it.
That there had to be another way. I downloaded and bought Spyware Doctor- it seems to have gotten rid of the virus. So it says. The computer runs fine now. BUT,
The picture file lost was big- like 10 GB. When I click on properties for the C drive it shows the memory being used- like the lost pictures are somewhere on the c drive. I have tried every basic search and even tried Spyware Recovery File- nothing seems to work. Is there any hope???
Please for the love of family pictures and Spring Breaks, Help!
