    Any Ideas were I might find mydocuments or outlook email data after a restore using the none distructive restore from the HP partiton on a HP pavilion 630n. I had run AVG which found many viruses include system files which could not be healed so I used the nondestructive restore feature on that model. After I had run AVG I did a reboot and the computer did a check disk which proceeded to clean up the disk and indexes. No more Doc. or email.

    Welcome to TSG....

    You can take a look and see if you can find any directories that look like ones that this data should be in like documents and settings with a number after it that might be write protected and if found there might be your old data.

    One thing you might consider in the future is baking up all of the important data on a regular basis. Backing up saves a lot of lost information.....
