I have become a victim of my own lazyness. I never create a back up of anything, and I believe I have come to meet my demise.
I installed a program to convert .ASF files to .AVI files. After installing the program I decided I was not satisfied with it and uninstalled the program. While doing so it asked me if I would like to remove certain files that were associated with the program, and with out thinking I clicked "yes to all" soon after realising my mistake. Now any program dealing with video formats(After effects, a few file converters) gives me errors.
I am asking wether there is a way to retrieve the files. Or a way to find out what it was I deleted so I may try and get them back.
If all is to hell I may decide to reinstall windows after transferring all my data. And then I will make sure to backup everything from now on. Only problem is that I lost my windows xp install disk . . . .
p.s. I have done a lot of searching but have found no answers.
