Trying to help a friend out here. He seems to have a faulty usb slot which, when he plugged his mp3 player into, crashed the pc, and when rebooted, xp has reset itself, changing the date to 20085 (!). More importantly he has lost a lot of very important work documents. I can't use system restore, since each time this has happened, restore points have been cleared. He really desperately needs these files back. If anyone could help, I would be more than grateful!
