   Hey Im new to these forums

and I have a problem with my computer,

So I've had this virus in my computer,

and it was real hard getting rid of it

 

I was forced to do Factory Image Restore

 

Problem is I lost all my data, folders, music, games, pics, etc.

I was hoping if they were still there on my hard drive,

The question is if they are recoverable?

Please help me out anyone,

I would appreciate for a reply

 

I did this yesterday just so you know

A factory install will erase all files on the hard drive, so essentially they are gone.

 

However, you may be able to recover some of them using a data recovery application like Recuva.
