I guess I won't be able to retreive the files I am looking for. I don't know what the colored dots mean but I'm guessing, green is good, red not so good. I have a lot of red dots. It gives mostly numbers, no file names and it only pulled up two documents, one that was overwritten and one that I have no idea what it could be.
So I'll keep my fingers crossed that when I put the HDD back in the old PC, with the replacement MB, everything will work.
Thanks for your input. I'll keep this recovery thing handy---you never know.
