Problem after system restore


#1

Salam guys 1st of all i m not sure if i m posting in right section of forum if i m wrong then move thread to proper section.Ystrday i moved some files(exe,zip,msi) from mobile memory card to drive D but when i tried to open them windows xp was giving error somthng like not corect path or some user acount restrictions problem but i was logged on as administrator.I restored system to previous date(20days back)&system restord succesfuly but som of d files i transferd r not ther anymore i tried much 2look in diff folders,in my mmc card but no where&i m sure files were not deleted accidently.This thing has surprised&shocked me i always thought systm restore z v safe thing.Plz tel me how to bring those files back.For restoring purpose i think norton ghost z better bcoz it can create image or clone disk&when problm occurs like w/ me now then we can put back d creatd image.Thanx

system restore only restores the registry changes and system file!

its possible that the files were never copied (for some reason) or the copying process was interrupted halfway! and when the copying process is interrupted windows usually deletes the half copied files but sometimes it deletes the file and keeps showing the files in explorer (sometimes a refresh or closing and reopening the folder fixes it) so that when you open them you get that error

Diff. Errors from 3 files> 1.Cant b installed bcoz file cant b found in cabinet file. 2.The parameter is incorect 3.Instaler integrity has failed,incomplet download or damaged media. I m sure files were downloaded succesfuly in download manager,mayb somthng hapend during transfer or restoration but somthng wrong z done by windows itself.
