Dear All,

I just reinstall windows XP due to the previous installation not able to
reboot.

But the problem, due to i reinstalled in the same partition, so my previous
data (my document) is protected to be accessed.

Please advice how to retrieve this folder.

Thank you for your help.

this subject has been covered numerous times, a quick search of this
newsgroup would give the info required, or a 1 second spent searching google
