Thank you for your prompt reply! I'm using HP laptop, G32. I used the backup at control panel system & security. No, I did not check if my files and school documents were on the external disk because it took 3.5-4 hours to back up. If it did not back up my files, then why did it take so long? I do not have much software installed on my laptop (Restoring did not get my software back either). And when I check the backup folder, it's larger than 100 GB?
I did a system recovery. Mine is Windows 7. I have removed my external disk.
I restored my files using control panel system & security. Basic default files are those files that are not mine, they came with the computer. For example, those flower pictures etc. Actually, they said some files cannot be retrieved when I restore them. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v207/shatteredsouls/cannotberestored_zpsebb0a9fe.jpg
The free recovery program i used is Recuva. It just offers to recover different kinds of files such as pictures, music, documents etc. Then they will ask where were the files located and proceed to scan. I manage to get a few docs/pdfs but I hope to get everything back.
