    What disk? Where? How?

    Sorry, but you didn't explain what you did very well. Did you put your files on CD or another drive, or what? Where are they now and do you have copies?

    If you've backed up all your files first as you imply, then you should be able to copy them back to the computer.

    If however, you cant find the files anywhere then I suggest you take a look at http://www.getdeletedfilesback.com for useful advice and info on how to best recover lost and deleted files. It's a great site for file recovery information.

    Hope it helps.
