Lost Photos and Music

I just did an install of Win 7 over Vista Home Premium and lost all photos and music. Is there any way I can recover them?

Hello Genesis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you did a in-place upgrade install from Vista to Windows 7, then you may have a C:\Windows.old folder that contains a backup of everything in your previous Vista installation. You can navigate within this folder to where they were to copy them back into Windows 7.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
