    I think system restore restores the system config, not files. I could be wrong though.

    you are correct, it will not rocover lost files nor will it erase files created in the days you restore back to.

    Tried it once before because I lost some files....didn't help

    Unerase will do it. Just limit the hard drive useage between now and then. It runs from DOS and is quite easy to use. When you delete a file Windows just replaces the first letter of the name with a ?. So you look in the directory where the file was, see what chance there is at recovery, recover it and you're done.

    Give me your email and I'll send the file.

    Soory to say this but chances of you getting that file back are slim to none. In you command prompt if you use the undelete command you may be able to recover it. Depends on how long you wait before you do this and if you've shut down your computer since you deleted the file. If you've shut down the file is gone. Deleted files are only stored in your RAM for so long and are erased at shut down.

    thats not true at all...deleted files are still stored on the hard drive, they are just marked as deleted and can be overwritten with new data.
