    Hello,
    I turned on my computer and realized that all of my files and programs were missing amongst all restore points. I ran Microsoft Security Essentials and no viruses were found. Is there any way to recover the lost data or is it a lost cause. I have a Toshiba, Windows 7, Intel Pentium. I am praying that I can recover this.
    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Check your user's folder, are you using the same logon account ? Sometimes windows logon fails and you get directed to a temporary account + folders and all your files will seem missing, when instead you are not looking at your previous documents folder.

    Have you done a search for the files and or folders? If not, do so.

    Data you do not backup is data you do not care about AND you should expect to lose said data. This is just one of the reasons why we stress backups so much.
