Windows xp media center

I am running windows media center.  XP          My puter is acting up and I want to do a full restore.  From I can see media center dosnt allow you to restore in such a way that the data is left intact.  You would loose everything.  Am I correct??  Did I miss something??  I dont care about installed programs  I just would like not to loose my data.

Your best bet is to move back up your files to an external media such as a pen drive or external hard drive. If you can not view your data on your current install, I would either hook the hard drive up to another computer to browse it or use something like Ultimate boot cd for windows to back up your files.
