I just formated (or quickrestored, as it is a rather old compaq presario) my comp ude to some issues i was having, and backed up everything but my firefox bookmarks. NOW that completely drove me insane, as I have a lot of important stuff there. Urgh.

Yeah, nothing worth noting, and could have been more adequated for my journal, but I felt like ranting about it.

Check out my thread on restoring my iTunes music. I can definitely sympathize with you.

You might be able to recover a few files using data recovery programs...

If you are interested in trying I have had success with a program called BadCopy.

Good luck.

frihani - I have already tried that. At least with demos, and damn, no luck at all. Since the Factory settings restory, fuck, everything was truly swept away. Stupid presario, I need a real computer. I cannot even make a partition without screwing a lot of things. Ugh. Thanks anyway for the suggestion; haven't tried BadCopy yet. Will look for it, y'know just in case.

reisio - awesome! That will be horribly useful from now on. Thanks
