If you've accidentilly (permently) deleted a file, can you get it back by restoring to a previous point, or does XP restore just restore program/system files etc?

It will not restore deleted files.

From XP Help

"Restoring your computer does not affect or change your personal data files. It is a good idea to back up your data files periodically. For example, you might copy your data files to removable media, such as a writable compact disc, once a week."
