Hello all --
Please excuse the cross posting, but I am broadcasting this not only as a 
warning to other unsuspecting readers, but also a question as to whether or 
not it is possible to recover files I lost using the restore command on the 
system tools menu.

Restore put up a statement when it first started that it would not affect 
email or other personal data files during a rollback.  However, last week I 
rolled back my system a week or so to fix a problem, and while it doesn't 
appear to have affected my email, it did clobber a program I am working on. 
It seems to have restored an earlier version of many of the files so I have 
lost a week's worth of work on it.

Does anyone know if this can be undone?
Why, even though the files were in My Documents -- why did windows restore 
those data files when it clearly said it would not touch personal data???
If there is a way to restore these files, could someone please explain how? 
I do not trust these commands.  I am quite hopping mad -- please excuse the 
rant, it's just that I can't remember what all I modified during the week 
and at least 4 of the files that I know I changed were rolled back.

Any help appreciated!!!!
