    Sounds like you did a clean install. So, no, not possible. The only way to keep your files is to use the "archive and install" option.

    What kind of install was this? What version of OS X did your mac have before? What did you install? Do you have a functioning backup? With a bit more information, we may be able to help.

    Only if they haven't been overwritten. If the user did a re-install, it's very likely the space has been overwritten.

    Definitely, but it's worth a shot if there's no way to get back the music.
