Hello, I recently learned to use msconfig to tweak how my windows starts. After deselecting all the programs in the "startup" tab, I restarted my computer and found that I did not like the changes. So, after the reboot, I chose "Normal Startup" in the "General" tab. It ask me to restart again, so I did. Then, on the reboot, I was supprised to find that my desktop had changed and all my files were gone. After searching for a few minutes, I finally found my files deep in my harddrive. So I replaced all of my files to their original directories and everything was back to normal. Here's where it gets weird. I opened msconfig again and edited a few of the programs that I did not want to run when I start windows. I pressed OK and it said that I should restart my computer, so I did. When I started up again, I found that all of my files had been deleted. After searching for my files, I looked at my harddrive and saw that about 8 GB of it had been cleared. So I restored to the time after the first msconfig insident and got all of my shortcuts back, but noticed that everything in "My Documents" was gone, except for the sample files that came on my computer right out of the factory. My question is, is there any way to recover these files, or are they in a special place like last time and could you tell me where to look? Thank you for your help, this is very important to me.
