Contents of recovery DVD created has my files

Specs: windows vista, Core Duo
I created a recovery disc a while back for Windows Vista. Used 2 DVDs to do it. I think it had some content from my documents on their. I'm wondering if there's a way to access this content again. Obviously putting the disc into the PC and clicking on the disc drive won't show the content directly. Maybe there's a program or something that'll allow me to access this content?

Most recovery disks are only the OEM software.

Review the owners manual for more info on this. It could be that your system has some way to save personal data.

Why do you say it can't be read?

I think it had some content from my documents on their Recovery DVD.

Not even a bit likely. Why do you think so? Are you losing some files? If you don't believe me, pop the discs in your DVD drive and explore the content using Windows Explorer.

Well....I made a Vista recovery disc. I just had an XP crash. It's be great if I can reinstall XP and then get the documents from my Vista recovery disc and copy them to the computer that has XP.

Again the recovery DVD you created does not contain any of your personal files. The only files it has are those needed to recreate Windows in the same manner when you first received the machine. Don't you do backup regularly?
