Ouch. I guess you learned the importance of backing up your computer the hard way.

If the files are still there, they may be hidden. I suggest you check in with the Malware Removal forum for help.

Follow these steps to display hidden files and folders.
1.Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
2.Click the View tab.
3.Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.

If this can't find your files, only data recovery software can help with file recovery. I had managed to retrieve lost files from my laptop with Tenorshare Data Recovery. You can download it and give it a shot! Get it from
