Lost or deleted data after Reinstalling Windows

The reinstallation of the Windows operating system refers to the process of formatting the hard drive and installing a fresh copy of the existing operating system to fix its errors. The procedure for reinstalling all the versions of Windows like Windows 98, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 is almost similar. Here are the detailed steps to reinstall your Windows operating system-

Insert the Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 CD / DVD into the drive and restart your computer. It will automatically start booting and ask you to press any key, proceed with it, then it will display the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Select the language and time format but in XP which you need to do later. Click the "Install Now" button (in XP press "Enter") and accept the license agreement. After that, it will ask you to select the type of the installation, since we are doing re-installation to fix errors we need to clean the drive and install. So select "Custom (Advanced)", then you will get a list of partitions if you have multiple, else only one. Select the partition in which you want to install and click format in case of Windows 7 and Vista but in XP along with that you need to select the file system and press "F". Now the installation wizard formats the drive and installs a fresh copy of Windows operating system.

At the time of re-installing Windows, there are major chances of losing data. It sounds to be a troublesome situation especially when you forget to take a backup of files stored in the partition before proceeding with Windows reinstallation.

Though the files remain inaccessible after the reinstallation, it is still possible to regain drive data if you wish to. A good data recovery software like My File Recovery can ultimately scan and bring back the files deleted upon reinstallation.
