My advent pc crashed bigtime so i used the cd to restore windows xp, i used the quick format option which deletes a lot of stuff but saves it back on windows in a file on the C drive.

This file has all the settings, files etc everything how my computer was set up before,

is there anyway i can restore all this stuff?

What about using the registry?

When you use the "quick format" option doesn't it wipe everything?

No, it saves all your files etc into a folder on your c drive. I need to restore all these files back onto the my desktop though.
