Windows 7: Uninstalled android studio, all files and folders deleted. Help!!!

19 Jun 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Uninstalled android studio, all files and folders deleted. Help!!!

I have committed the ultimate IT sin - I did not back up all of my Folders/Files and now they have disappeared from my Desktop!

Below is a brief outline of what happened, and the action(s) I have taken to try and resolve this problem. .

I downloaded Android Studio to my PC (Sony Vaio - Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit)

The following day I decided to uninstall Android Studio as felt that it wasn't really beneficial to me.

Big Mistake!!! I accidentally (and stupidly) checked the third box in the list that appears when you have clicked on the Android Studio Uninstall Icon. When this finished, ALL of my Folders/Files had disappeared from my Desktop!

The one thing that I did not do, however, was Restart my PC following the uninstall and therefore Android Studio still appears to be on my PC system. Following the above catastrophe, I have been putting my Laptop into Hibernate/Sleep Mode to (hopefully) prevent any further damage???

I am unable to use the Restore feature through Windows 7 as this was not set so there are no restore points available. Also, unable to Restore Previous Version(s) as there are no previous versions available.

I have Run Unhide.exe, however, no Folders/Files reappeared.

I have also Run Recuva software and, although a majority of the deleted Folders/Files appeared in the list, sadly, approximately 2,500 of these have been damaged/overwritten.

I am absolutely DESPERATE to get all of my Folders/Files back and would greatly appreciate any suggestions or help that anyone can give me.
