Hi,
My name is Randy.
I am sorry to hear that happened.

It may be possible to recover lost files after installing Windows 8.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a powerful data recovery software, which can recover files after installing Windows if the files are not overwritten. Furthermore, it also can recover deleted files, recover files from formatted partition, recover files from RAW partition, recover files from deleted or lost partition, etc. The following is step-by-step instructions to recover lost files after reinstalling Windows with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

Tips: If there are files lost after reinstalling Windows, please stop using the hard disk and make sure you do not save any data to the hard disk.

Please connect your hard disk to another healthy computer or create bootable CD/DVD of EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover lost files after reinstalling Windows.
