A friend with XP Home used the SYSTEM RESTORE function to restore a slow operating system. In the process the friend lost all her Outlook emails and her My Docs folder. What is the best way ( if there is a way) to recover those files lost when she performed the Restore function?
System Restore doesn't overwrite those - only changes system files.
I'm guessing the account was corrupted and it created a new user for your friend. If you go under C:\Documents And Settings\ you'll probably see her user account .. say user.computername and then you'll see username.
