    Ok, for starters I tried booting one day and it simply did not want to boot..kept restart looping.

    I let it check for disc errors it found some..ok
    It couldnt repair the errors..
    Tried to restore, no good..

    So, I eneded up selecting the option that said reformat keeping data and settings..
    Everythings all loaded up and its working fine now.

    I knew I would lose my programs it specifically stated I would..but now I dont find my pictures and also my IE favoraties are gone as well..
    I am a bit lost on what to do or where to look.
    I do have a drive "H" now Called "Recovery (H)"

    Any help is appreciated.

    Specs:

    Gateway GT5654
    AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 5000+ 2.60 GHz
    3 Gig RAM
    Running 32 Bit Vista

    I searched the computer for files like such but came up empty.

    Under:
    Computer
    Local Disk C
    There is a "Backup" folder with many folders in there, would it be in there?
