I re-installed my XP Professional and after installation everything else on my computer disappeared. Can I, or how do I, recover any of what disappeared?

Did you ever create any backups of your computer?

Did you ever set up the Firefox Sync service?

You might be able to get some data back if you immediately try an unerase tool like the following:

Unfortunately, the odds of success are not very high.

Here are some files you might be able to find: Recovering important data from an old profile.
