Problem getting files after windows reinstall
I just formated my friends POS dell using the system disc this thing came with. Thing was flooded with spyware and what not, so I figured just format this thing and just resend the files that she sent me to hold onto so they arent lost.
Heres the thing though, I was not able to get windows to delete the partition and format the drive completely. I ended up just reinstalling windows, and I think I may have switched to NTFS while the system was still FAT. Now the drive has the same ammount of disc space left, and I cant find the files she needs on the drive anywhere. A few were found but the majority isnt there.
Im getting pissed off that I cant figure this crap out, oh and I hate dells too cause this thing is slow.

It depends on how important the files are, and if she's willing to pay.
Head over to Tucows.com. Windows>System and Untilities>File Tools>File Recovery.
For the life of me, I can't remember which ones I liked and disliked. Most offer a free trial though, but require purchasing before allowing you to save files. One of the programs actually found some files that were lost 2 or 3 partitions ago. I was quite impressed.P4 3.0 @ 3.45GHz
