Files and Folders Was Removed without Notice by Software
"Hello, everyone there! My office Windows XP computer hard drive has been partitioned into five drives: Local Disk C, D, E, F and G. And, yesterday, while installing, testing and uninstalling some unfamiliar programs downloaded over the internet, I was also editing some Word documents stored on my Local Disk E. However, about twenty minutes latter, when I did have finished all my business documents, I just found all the E partition data, including hundreds of Word documents, Excel files, pictures and other files, was all removed and also found nowhere. The PC Recycle Bin was completely empty. Do you know why my data inside this Local Disk E gets removed? What can I do now to recover files from this computer partition? Such missing files could be restored by data recovery programs found over the internet? Please help me fix this problem. Thank you very much in advance!"
