Hi Michael

I know I am a bit late in saying this but unfortunately you deleted all your files on the partition when you reformatted it. You should have backed up all your necessary files beforehand. You cannot recover the lost files unless you have a backup. So I am sorry to say that your files are lost forever.

Another mistake you did is buying the full version of Windows 7 instead of the upgrade version. The full version is more expensive and is never needed if you have Window XP installed already. This would also have prevented the need for a reformat, thus saving all your files.

Hello Michael,

When you format the computer, .all the programs that you had installed on the computer are removed including the SPSS that you had installed, so that is not a strange happening that should leave you worried.

You will need to get the SPSS and install again on the computer, assuming that it will not have problems working on windows 7. If it brings compatibility issued when you install on windows 7, you will have to get a version of it that can run on windows and I believe you can  readily get a free copy online. So just search of it on the internet and download it.
