Err - if you are running XP i think using system restore will get your files back.... as long as you have not overwritten the area on your drive the data was on it is NOT gone.  you could try using some recovery software if system volume restore does not work.  (also try browsing to c:\systemvolumerestore
or
c:\system voume information
in dos and see if your files are there, i believe this is where windows keeps things for use in volume restores.

Recovery software would be :

system volume restore simply restores you files and settings to the way they were at the date you set. so if you put it to the date 1 day before your problems started, you should only loose the most recent work you have done.  if there are important files you need to get then put them on a cd or floppy before doing the restore.

I recommend you use a trial version of tuneup utilities 2004, it does not only undelete files there are many utilities that would speed up your pc, its reliable and it would tell you if the file you are going to recover is still in a good condition or not
