Accidentally Deleted User Account - How To Restore?

December 9, 2011 at 16:34:58
Specs: Windows 7
I feel so dumb....

I bought a new computer and thought I had transferred all the data from my old laptop, and after deleting the user accounts from the old laptop I realized my music and pictures had not been transferred! Is there any way to reverse this?? I would hate to have lost all of this.... My entire music library, family pictures, etc.

If it helps, I have Windows 7, and the computer I stupidly wiped is a Dell 14R. I deleted the user account through the Control Panel.

Help me please!! :(

Currently trying Recuva and Recover My Files.... Hope this works! PLEASE reply with other/better ideas! I am panicking!

Did you also say to delete the files?

Did you create any backup?

testdisk may work or photorec. Usually you need to boot to a live cd so as to not wreck the data.

Windows 7 has a wonderful backup program if you use it. Get a usb drive just for backups. Either do it often or let it automatically backup.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
