Go back to the system recover utility and click the option to undo. That should bring your files back

I believe the system recovery utility only keeps files in the My Documents folder safe. To undo the recover click start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> then hit system recover. You should see an option to undo your last system recover.

Are you positive that what you performed was a system recover? If so, my directions in the last post will do the same thing as the F10 thing

Check and see if there is a option to undo the last recover you performed.

Follow my directions, look for a option that will undo the last recover. It should say something like "undo last recover", or are you saying you already tried that?

If that option isn't there then I dont know what i can do. Have you tried google? Also if you wanna put a screenshot you can just submit it to a image host and copy the IMG into the post.
Something similar happend to me once, i never could get the files back. But their must be a way, I'll do some searching.
