I had a problem in the past with my computer. When i tried to reformat it said there was missing files. So i recovered my computer. But now i can't reformat anymore cause when i recovered my computer, it deleted the files needed for reformating. I was wondering if there is a way to get those files back so i can reformat again instead of having to recover.

can you start that again?

What "files were missing "and how were you trying to format"?

Reformatting means all data is lost on the HDD, so the formatting operation will never (and cannot) rely on any files on the HDD for formatting.

Step by step with computer type, Windows version, what you did, what CD's or disks you have etc would be needed here.
