Upgraded from win7 to win8 lost music

Upgraded from 7 to 8 and rebooted. Now can't find any of the music files.  Did a search.  Is there a free program or method to recover all the music ?

Did your Windows profile get saved somewhere during the upgrade? Windows.old, for example?

You could try AVG Undelete to recover files that you recently deleted. However, I believe that your Windows upgrade shouldn't have wiped out your music files. Perhaps you could provide more information on the Windows installation you had used for the upgrade.

when u say you did a search??
for *.mp3 on system root (c:) drive
how much music are we talking?
gigabytes?
what did the search return?
did you perform WET (Windows Easy Transfer) before the upgrade?
this moves all your 'stuff' to another location?

Hi.

Before we all start guessing, I would ask you to please inform us whether this was really an upgrade installation (an installation that keeps settings, programs and files) or if you just called it like this but did a clean install.
