Hi there and welcome

When you reinstall you will have overwritten most of the memory so the chance is slim, but as the procedure I have for you is free, then it is worth trying.

Can you go to my link below and download Recuva which is a free recovery program

Use the download Latest Version button on the right.

Then install it and run the program

Perform a scan of your computer and anything that can be recovered, this program will find it.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
