    Why is all my files and data gone from my laptop all of the sudden?


    I recently logged in back to my school laptop, only just to find all my settings in default and all of my data and files are missing to. I did research on it and the only explanation I could find is something about a temporary account. I've tried everything but I can't find anything to help me fix this problem. This is my school laptop and I really need all my files back as soon as possible. If anyone could kindly help me, it would be appreciated. I forgot to say that since I'm on my school laptop, I can't log into Administrator.

    :)

    files have gone

    I MOVED a directory from one W2K PC to another. However, the target PC (which has a backup unit on it and thus the point of the move) crashed halfway through the move and I had to reboot. I then decided that I needed to sort out why the PC crashed and MOVED the directory back again.

    However, in the process, most of the files have disappeared! What I don't understand is why the original files were deleted if they were not copied over.

    As far as I can see, the files have gone for good. Is there any hope? Friend suggest Data Recovery Wizard, can I try that?
