  1. I don't think that is possible. Also you can only recover files if you have used the quick format option. Use softwares like advanced system care 5 to recover your files. The files are probably gone but it is worth a try.
  2. If you did a custom install and didn't remove XP before you started, you should have a folder called windows.old which will contain your old windows files. just copy them out of the approriate folder into the corresponding new folder.
  3. Heres a useful article on data recovery. It is possible to recover your data... Maybe. It all depends on what has been written over and what hasn't. A common recovery software recommended often here is Recuva.
