    So you can not restore the files back to a previous time ?

    If you cannot roll back to a previous date, or manage to use the repair functions then you will need to do clean windows install. You might get lucky and the drive will be partitioned with the majority of her data on the other partition. Moral of the story is don't touch what you do not fully understand and always make backups. Another good idea is never to keep important data or information on the system's drive.
