    Didnt back up files before I upgrade to Vista from XP - HELP!

    Is there any way to go back or recovery the files on my hard drive?

    What kind of files are you talking about. I upgraded and didn't lose
    anything. Can you explain further please.

    Did you do a clean install or just the upgrade? If you did the upgrade they
    should still be there. If you did a format and clean install, they are
    probably gone without some major recovery methods.
