F10=System Recovery

I did a F10 System Recovery and lost some *.doc and *.txt files saved on my Desktop. How could I recover these files? Please help.

Re: F10=System Recovery

Normally an F10 Recovery only protects files stored in the My Documents folder,others will be lost.
You may have some luck with a file recovery app such as this:
**Clicking the KUDOS star on the left is a way to say 'Thanks'**
*To help others find solutions, click 'Accept as Solution' on a Reply that solves your issue*
