Default Restoring in WINXP

Hey all, I need some help from the pros here

My system was gone before (couldn't boot up)

So I restored everything from the recovery console

Here is what I followed.

So my machine no boots up ok/ I pretty much performed the repair option hen u boot up with the cd but I had to do it manually b/c the option wasnt avail.

So now the problem lies with recovering my programs and drivers, etc

If you go on page 3 of my link, which is (

It asks to go in the system volume information folder, transfer files (


to the temp folder and then go in recovery console to restore them so I have all my program restore points back so I can sue them again without reinstalling.

Basically my problem is backing up these 5 files in the temp folder.

When im in the system volume info folder, theres 3 folders with restore points. 2 of them are from the 2nd whcih are the new ones and one is from the 24th or august which is the one im after. Problem is, when I go in that folder theres like 100 subfolders and the 5 files located in the snapshop folders are all in there but how would I be able to do this now? How can I restore all of these? The files range from RP350-RP437.
The other restore points (the new ones) have the one subfolder with the snapshop folder and the 5 files needed but this is useless to me, I need to backup my old points.
So with all of those subfolders, how can I resotre everything back to normal?
