Default Is there a way to retrieve my old information from my computer?

I came home recently and found out that someone messed with my computer and downgraded my Windows Vista to an old Windows XP version and in the process, completely cleared all my files, documents, pictures, music, etc. EVERYTHING is gone. There aren't even the regular programs like microsoft word or games. Six years of my life have just disappeared. Is there ANY possible way to get even a few things back or is it just completely hopeless?

Yes there is a way, but you could buy a new Computer for what it would cost to recover you old data. That is why you keep a good backup of important things

Did that someone deleted the vista partition and used it for xp or did he created a new partition for xp? Open a Run box, type diskmgmt.msc and check your partition, in the case xp is on a new separated partition, open your bios, change the boot order, your vista will come back to you. No other partition than xp? punch your friend's nose
