My computer was running slow this morning, and Google Chrome kept shutting down on me. When I reboot it, I inadvertently did a PC Recovery. Yikes! I've lost my pics, internet settings, Quicken, everything! Now, I'm trying to do a System Restore, but it won't let me go back to a previous date/time...Have I really lost everything, or is there something else I can do to recover my precious information? HELP!

Data recovery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_recovery

One program that I have used successfully, GetDataBack - Data Recovery Software - http://runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm

sorry louis...
just adding something that I think very important...hope this ok...

if you want to use recovery software....dont you ever installing that software on the hardrive that contain the data that you want to recover...because that can damage you data...
attach the hardrive to another computer with different hardrive as OS (windows) and install the recovery software on it...and scan your hardrive....the one that you want to recover not the hardrive on that computer (OS and recovery software)...
please remember this...because this is the data recover key...if you still proceed install the recovery software on the hardrive that you want to recover...dont blame anyone if your data be corrupted or your hardrive cannot be accessible/open...

here the Step-by-Step Solutions for Common Problems on runtime website (or you can read the manual guide)

all recovery software will not allowed you to install their software on the hardrive that you want to recover...hope you understand what I worried about the safety of your data and hardrive....
but I think you only can recover your data not you setting (internet, information,etc)...

You don't have to close your eyes to dream :busy:
You can find escape inside this moment :smash:
And I will follow  :whistle:
