    If you have a windows.old directory you can recover data from it. If you formatted and then reinstalled windows you may not have this.
    You'll still have to reinstall all your applications such as Office.

    Next time you do this you should first utilize windows easy transfer and send all your word documents, pictures, favorites, etc to your thumb drive or DVD and then transfer them back in. You still have to reinstall your apps though.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.
