Somehow my Gateway desktop pc started rebooting automatically, then shut down completely and failed to reboot. I used the Gateway Recovery Disk to restore the Operating System only. My files were backed up automatically as I chose the non-destructive option. The backup files were stored in a folder on my C: drive, with many sub folders in a coded format. I successfully reloaded the XP OS and have got my pc running fine, but cannot restore my backup files. I tried Windows Backup Wizard, but no joy. I have a 15 Dec backup on Norton 360, but not enough room to restore because my backup from recovery is too large. I have 2 options:
1. Delete my recovery system backup (170 Gb) and restore Norton 360 backup from Dec 15 or,
2. Find a way to restore my Dec 30 backup that was created when I did the system recovery.
