    Upgraded to Windows 7 from vista but now I cant revover my files that I backed up before to this version cause the hp recovery manager freezes around when it gets to 12% of the first disk. If possible I would like to get those files back. Any ideas anyone?

    Piriform Recuva is an easy to use program, but lacks a decent search algorithm, a better program is TestDisk. Hope you can get the files back!

    yea sometimes it takes a while to scan the disks, you should do "restore folder structure" if you are using recuva. I mean overwritten by windows 7 probaly wrote new files to disk over your vista files (personal files, system files) that your hp recovery manager did not back up (because you said it is freezing).
