Because my c drive is so full (no mbs left at all) I keep having to transfer folders and programs to d drive but any space I make on c drive is almost immediately filled up again. I tried to move a my documents folder to d drive and I was asked if I wanted to replace it. I sais yes. I didn't realise that the two folders were both different and now I have lost the my documents folder. Is it possible to get it back. Someone suggested that i go into ms dos and on c windows type scanreg /restore but it said registry restore failed. Please help.

I am sorry but these file or folders may not be recoverable.
It is very important when moving files and asked to replace a file with another one that you look at the size & date created of each file.

I don't know if this will work, but it is free and the best option offered so far.
