    system restore only works when you create your check points diligently. and if i did not remb wroonlgy , it does not insure you against format.... because when you do format, the system assumes you know what you are doing... (remember the 2 dialogs that prompted you before you made the boo boo?)

    when you format a hdd... chances are your data is gone... to recover it, its usually beyond an individual financial means.

    you can go for those 'undelete' or file recovery softwares and give it a try.... dont get your hopes up too high.

    Still don't know what happened, comp just rebooted itself and everything was reverted back to as if it's new, including almost all data gone.

    Is that your OS drive (C or other drive?

    If it is other drive, you can download the program from http://www.recovermyfiles.com/
    Use it to check if the information is still in your hard disk.

    then it's not a crash. like dat next time can engage me.. i charge u cheaper :P
    wahahaha.

    a crash in my definition is that the harddisk kaput.... plug in cable, got no activity, or making really strange noise. normal 'crash'... is usually due to corruption or accidents like formatting....

    wish you good luck....

    i wasn't that lucky when i was playing with those secure delete applications last time. >.<
