Default My computer seriously hates me.

I ran the Acronis*True*Image*drive cleanser, and it deleted some files before I could cancel it.

1) I don't know everything it deleted.
2) I want it back.


Any help?

What is you OS? If it is XP, use system restore option and you should be able to get them back.

Huh, I didn't actually think that worked.

(Yes, it's XP)

Well, I'll try that. Thanks.

System Restore will be your only hope.

System restore doesn't do anything.

I'll try the Undelete thing.


Edit: Undelete doesn't find it in the drive where the stuff is missing from.

So basically I'm screwed?

Without knowing what was lost. Yes. Cant recover something lost if you do not know what you are looking for.
