Have a bit of a problem with some locked files. I was having trouble with my home network connection, so my husband tried to repair the installation. Unfortunately, he accidently reinstalled a new copy of XP on the same drive. My files on the old system had been marked private, so that my grandsons couldn't mess them up. I saved all my data in a MY DOCUMENTS folder named Grandma. After he got the computer running, we discovered that there was no way I could access my original folder. We tried restoring the original operating system, but that didn't work either. The properties tab for the original say that the file has 0 bytes. Is there any way to recover my data? Or, woe is me, are they gone forever?
