I had this error:
"Stop c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The session manager...."

Then no more windows..only shuts down after that error. My OS winxp sp2 was in Drive C. Then I installed winxp on :C again. But I found it was installed in :D. In :C no more windows is there. Rather some folders like "Recovery", "1386" etc are there. Folder "Recovery" is very big. My importants files were in :D. When I browsed in :D I found newly created and updated files were not there.

How can I recover or see my last created or updated files? Can "Recovery" of :C be any help - how to bring back my last files?

Well it sounds like Windows did a "clean" install to D -- which means that that drive or partition was formatted prior to the install.

If that's the case -- those files are lost. Have you opened up the "Recovery" folder to see what is there? I don't think Windows created this but if you don't know what's there -- you should check it out.

C Drive was not formatted. Recovery folder is around 4 GB, which is the approximate size of my used C Drive spaces before reinstalling. So I guess there should be some way to convert this recovery folder into something original state. Anyone has any idea?

Are there sub folders in the "Recovery" folder -- can you browse it? You need to verify what is there. No data has been lost if you can copy files from it to the "new" Windows -- although you will have to reinstall programs.
