Solved What to do if a Asus EEE1005HA deletes itself

Specs: Windows XP
Hello! I bought my eee1005HA about two years ago. I never had a real problem with it but about a week ago when I turned it on I got the black start screen and had to run a setup. I then got to the start page where it thanked me for buying my new asus and I had to register it all anew just like 2 years ago. When it was finished and it was fully booted up I discovered that everything was gone- all files, pictures, programmes. I ran a couple of recovery programmes but did not get much back. But just today it did the exact same thing again. I turned it on and the whole process started over. Even as I selected "recover all my files" before the setup it did not change anything and everything was gone again. Do you have any idea how that could happen and steps I could take to not have that happen again? Thank you so much in anvance!! Kind regards, Sarah Heller

"What to do if a Asus EEE1005HA deletes itself"

It didn't.

YOU deleted your personal files that you added since you got the computer when you installed the original software installation from scratch.

See response 3 in this.

The same applies to you except you're using XP (I assume - that's what's listed under your name in your first post) and you installed the original software installation from scratch rather than what I assumed was just Windows.

"and steps I could take to not have that happen again?"

Backup your important data to another drive, disk, or system. Don't use the USB memory sticks for this purpose. They fail. Online storage can be free. It can be part of your internet package too!
CD's or DVD's burned from your laptop are just as good.
Always keep at least two copies of important data in different places.
If you have an Andriod, there is an app for transfering / storing data that is available and it works with your PC.
