    Hi My friend had a problem with his computer
    He installed a new bootscreen (by copying the ntoskrnl over the original) and when he rebooted the bootscreen came up and then it just locked up and kept reeboting. So this morning his dad Wiped the whole computer (with windows recovery CD)
    So what I am asking is can he recover any files? he had over 1000 music files and videos/pictures etc.
    not to mention the 6 or 7 games he had installed
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    thanks
    Ryan
