Re: reinstall and loss of data
The main question to ask you is "did you format your drive during the
re-installation of ubuntu 10.04"? If you did format your hard drive, then you
may need to look for a recovery software to get back your data, if the data is
important to you, otherwise, the data is gone forever.

Don't we also automatically make a backup on an upgrade?
