Default I have gotten back into my computer but...........

(See posts below) - this is a different question so I am posting separately.

YEAH!!! I am back on the computer BUT

only have my hard drive is mine.....I must have created another partition or something.....27G are being used ....somewhere.....

I know all my information is in here somewhere.....can someone now help me find it!?

Oh, I could not do a system repair, I install (or thought I installed) right over the old system....it asked if I wanted to install over or create another partition but I chose install over....so what is going on.

Anyway......I want to back up pictures and videos but the programs....are here somewhere......can you tell me how to get to them.

When you reinstall Windows, your registry gets wiped. So all your programs have to be reinstalled. All you files should still be on the drive.
