Windows 7: Recovering A User Account

28 Dec 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

I initially did a deep scan and got heaps and heaps of rubbish and repeats. I think the normal scan has picked up most of her current folders of photos.
I have now scanned for documents and emails.
She doesn't think she had any documents and the scan reflects that.
However when scanning for emails I found (and saved) "Thunderbird emails. zip".

Today I and going to try to put all the recovered photos back onto her computer, and figure out if I need the email zip file.
I noticed when I gave her a new account with the same name, she had the last month or so of emails in her in box.

Just wish I hadn't installed Open Office before I realised the problem I had created.
Thanks again.

I haven't bothered to read this thread in detail, so it may have already been covered, but I'm wondering if there is an appropriate restore point, or backup image to use?

I tried Restore. It undid all the other things I had done, but did not undo my deletion of a User account.
