I had a friend who had a ton of spyware and I am going to reinstall windows for them. I told them to backup all of their importand data before i do the reinstall. They made the bright move to move files to CD versus copying them. The system was unstable and crashed while they were moving the files. Now the files are no longer on their HD or on the disk they were burning. I searched in all hidden and system temp files to try to find the files and cannot. I have run two differnet undelete programs and cannot find the files. I told them that there was a 5% chance of retrieving the files. Are they screwed or is there any chance at recovering the files.
Thanks for the help.
BTW they are running xp home sp2
