Actually I don't know what I am going to be able to recover. I did have back-up of all my renderings. The problem I had is that DAZ PRO stored all my content in a different directory than the original directory. It migrated most of it to the new directory when it was installed. I did not correct my back to the new directory so when I thought I was backing up I was only getting a small porton of my content to actually back up.
I install a completely new hard drive snd install the windows eight to that hard drive. Sure widh I had done that from the start it was only $ 49.00 for a gig. then I could have left the draive as it was. Hine sight right. I also have bought a recovery program and it finds the files, I can copy them but most are just garbage.
I have started re-downloading from website I bought from and reinstalling. I amazed at just how much I have to reinstall. I kept a back-up of most all my down loads but I still am missing a lot.
The big issues are the backdrops, the scenes I built by putting pieces together and retexturing them. Those I may never get back. I will be looking to find good files for the downloads that I didn't have saved or that don't show on the web.
I think I had 2 accounts at one time and I cant get the information from my first accounts. Such is life, but all is good still got my health & family
