Process of File Loss

I intended to clear partition by format after my computer was attacked by Panda Burning Incense and the antivirus software was disabled at that time. Actually it’s a good method to save my machine, but I didn’t notice that My Document actually was under partition D; I thought it would be safe to my document, so I pressed “OK” after the warning shown.

It was too late when I found all my files of my works were in My Document and were totally deleted by myself. I regretted enormously and hated the virus when I failed to retrieve deleted files after I tried many methods such as re-format and system restore with costing a whole day.
