I recently had to reinstall windows due to a micro av infection, not a full reinstall, so I left my music files etc, on the computer and they are still taking up space but I can't access them. when I search for mp3 files for example, nothing comes up. so it's like they are there but invisible. how do I fix this? help please! I am trying to retrieve my old files. they are still taking up disc space, but I can't access them. how can I fix this? I didn't create a new partition, the recovery disc is separate from the main one. I tried unhiding. when I click on local disc it says 3 gb free and when I click on everything inside of that folder, it only comes to 16gb, the 100gb or so that is missing is the files I can't get to. am I screwed?
