This may be a stupid question, but is there any way to retrieve data after a system restore?

Thanks

You can try using Recuva but it all depends if you have installed a bunch of things yet or not.

Windows XP was stuck in an infinite startup loop that I couldn't seem stop. I tried everything I could find, but nothing worked. Live and learn.
