Here's the conundrum.
So, after I ran the A1 cleaner, I used the disk defragmenter on my computer and thought I was doing a super good job of cleaning up my computer. Originally, I had about 2G left on my harddrive. Now I have ~19G.
Here's where it gets interesting. All of the music/books that were on my computer are now gone. Except for the 30 or so songs I bought from itunes. I had about 10G of music/books on my harddrive. They are not in the recycle bin. I skimmed most of the A1 messages about the types of files I was deleting but it was a bunch of internet junk and I thought I was good to go. I searched the harddrive and nothing came up so I couldn't have moved it accidentally.
I'm afraid to plug my ipod into my computer for fear that the music that is on it will be gone when it is synced to this new incomplete library of music I now have.
How can one go about restoring files like this? I know that it's possible to get back documents even if they've been deleted--that's what I've learned from CSI shows.
If you have any ideas on how to restore my music/book files, I'd be so appreciative!
Thanks a bunch!
