    Hey folks,

    A friend of my wife's recently had a baby and took a bunch of digital pictures, and downloaded them to her PC. Soon after that, they had to re-install Windows XP (reasons unknown).

    Well, the Dell guy forgot to tell them to do a backup of files, and you guessed it, when the re-install was complete, she says she can't find any of the jpgs.

    I don't have XP and have no idea how she can go about recovering the file(s) and or jpgs.

    Anyone have any solutions?? She's devastated that all the birth pix may be lost.

    Thanks

    Alfer

    Pretty tough if she did an actual restore that formats and reinstalls the OS. You could download the free version of this, it'll tell you if anything can be recovered.

    Sorry I can't be more help, I don't know a lot about data recovery like this.
