    I've not played much with Vista, but some operating systems create a separate directory structure when you reinstall the OS. This could have happened to you. Look for something that doesn't really belong, like OLD WINDOWS or some such. As long as the current install is noting the space being allocated, the files should still be intact.

    Sounds like a classic case of file/folder ownership same as in XP, I don't have Vista to try these but it appears to be the same, have a look at the Microsoft/Google links below.
