  [DELETED] 19:57 18 Sep 2003

A mate had problems with XP and basically could not get into his pc as it kept rebooting. Was told by a help line he called to put in red recovery disk. Is now working but has lost everthing he gad on pc and it is as it was when first purchased. Is there anything he can do using XP recovery functions to get this stuff back or has he had it ????.

By the sounds of it the 'RED' disc wiped the drive and then re-installed windows.
