I used my system restore CD rom and stupidle did not take a back-up of my files (I only did this because the programme wizard said it make an automatic one - it didn't :)).

I have heard that when a file gets deleted it gets partitioned elsewhere, is this true and how do I go about restoring these file?

If you've restored an image, I'm sorry to say that I think your chances of restoring any files are virtually zero. However if you want to try undeleting files, I'd suggest you try "FreeUndelete". You can download it at http://www.majorgeek...wnload4407.html

I copied the following directly from the website for ya.

FreeUndelete is a freeware data recovery program for deleted files.

In case of accidental deletion of files on a NTFS file system (used by default in Windows XP, 2000 and NT) FreeUndelete is the utility to help.

It is our pleasure to emphasize that FreeUndelete is free. There is no charge, direct or hidden, to download and use a fully functional copy of the program. The program does not install any spyware or adware along with it. It does not populate user's desktop with pop-up ads or forcefully subscribe user to mailing lists.
