Hello! My name is Apoorva. I am using Windows Vista which is installed on C:\ & Windows XP which is installed on D:\

I had taken a Complete PC Backup in the month of February in Vista using Complete PC Backup feature.

From the past few days, I was facing some issues with Vista and so I decided to use Windows Complete PC Restore to restore my computer back to what it was in the month of February.

Now when I started with the Restoration process, it said that it will erase all the files on C:\ & D:\.

I selected the checbox and continued with it, and my god!, when it restarted the computer after the restore process was complete, I found that all the files and folder on D:\ on which Windows XP was installed has been erased and restored with an earlier version.

Is there any way by which I can recover those files? All files including files in My Documents, Program Files & Windows have been erased and restored with what there was in February.

Awaiting eagerly for a reply...

Did you make a backup later than February that you can restore?
