To facilitate CD recording, Windows XP uses a staging area (Drive_letter:\Documents and Settings\ username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning) to store data <u>for recording</u>, which is also copied to a monolithic disk image file (StashImapi.bin) located in the root folder by default, [Q279157].
Inadvertently, when I installed an update to a proprietary application (mortgage lending), it sent a large number of files to the Recycle Bin on my desktop. When I clicked on "Restore", is sent them to my CD Drive to be written to a CD. When I shut down my PC, or reboot it, I get a msg that files are waiting to be written to a CD, insert a disk.
I want to move these files back to my proprietary application, but don't seem to be able to find them on my PC. Where / How can I find these files so I can put them back where they belong?
