I have not tried it myself but you could try Recuva
http://www.recuva.com/

Directions on using it can be found here:

To be honest though it does not look good though since you say that it might have reverted to a date 2 years ago.

Good luck

The following is from microsoft's site

• The Last Known Good Configuration feature uses information that is saved from the last time that you shut down your computer to restore registry settings and drivers. Therefore, you can use this feature only if you were able to start your computer successfully before you restore your computer by using the last known good configuration.
• After you start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, changes that were made since the last successful startup are lost.

I can't imagine it reverting to a state 2 years ago so I hope that program suggested earlier works for you.
