good evenin to all,

 

i was using for some time now the free efficient man's organizer to keep all my important infos but since i had some problems with my pc i have reinstalled windows xp pro  just few hours ago

 

i forgot to backup those important infos i had and i ask please to know if there is a way to recover my efficient man's organizer data

 

fortunately i haven't formmated my hard disk but i kept the option install "leave windows as is" so all of my old files are still on my hard disk

 

the organizer can be open but the data are all missing and i do know if i can recover my data

 

many thanks in advance

Maybe...maybe not. Here is just one of several programs that might not find what you want.

Recuva - Recovery from damaged or formatted disks

QUOTE: Recuva scans all parts of a drive, looking for the bits that make up your files. If a drive's index has been damaged, chances are other parts of the drive may have been damaged too. Recuva will show you a list of files it has found on the drive, and give you an estimate of the likelihood of success of recovering them.

Similarly, when you format a drive (especially if you use the Quick Format option), Windows erases the hidden index but does not overwrite the existing files until you start saving new data to it. Recuva can still scan the drive's contents to find your files.

 

Like most free software these days, Recuva may have adware bundled with it so choose custom install or pay close

attention while installing and UNcheck any offers of toolbars, etc.
