Windows 7: Recovery system windows sold laptop

28 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 7 home Premium 32 bit
 
 

The location of my sensitive professional datas are in the folder Backup, following this path :

Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

So, do you mean that the datas of this folder "Backup" have been wiped even if my friend has chosen the recovery to another partition than the one on which this folder was ?

If yes, very last question just for the future in case I'll do the same stuff on my other computers (and without my friend !), is it also true for windows XP ?

Thank you so much for your answer.

Documents and Settings directly is for XP, not Win7. But either way that would be in the C drive unless those folders were deliberately moved to D. Since the C drive would have been wiped out with the Recovery choice that was made, then that folder should not have survived.

However I would have checked D to see what remained there as chances are some things might have been there that needed deleting before you handed over the PC.
