Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!As you continue to use the drive, you're overwriting the files and folders that goterased. The more you use it, the less likely you'll be able to recover anything on itYour best bet for recovering data now is to do the following:1) Remove the hard drive from the PC2) Purchase a USB-to-Hard Driver adapter kit3) Download and install this utility on a working PC:http://www.majorgeeks.com/news/story/recover_data_in_3_steps_with_minitool_power_data_recovery_free_edition.html4) Connect the old drive to the working PC5) Run the data recovery utility to see what can be retrieved from the old drive.If that tools does not find what you need, an alternative is Recuva:http://www.piriform.com/recuvaAnd, if that does not work well, the best tool out there is this one, but only the trialversion is free: http://www.file-recovery.com/
