System restore screwed up my asp.net web project????

I had to do a system restore today. I restored it to 2 weeks ago.

After it was done I entered VS.NET (latest version) and it said I was
entering it for the first time.

I opened up a web project I've been working on (ASP.NET 2.0) and I noticed
that 2 of the directories were renamed (ex: "Admin" dir to "Admin(2)".)
Also, web.config changes I made are now gone.

Any ideas why this would happen????

"System restore" can be a godsend...or a headache,
depending on how familiar you are with what it does.

If you are going to use it, you should know excatly what it does.

Here's a list of what "System Restore" saves :

Registry
Profiles (local profiles only)
COM+ DB
WFP.dll cache
WMI DB
IIS Metabase
Files with extensions listed in the <include> portion of the Monitored File Extensions
list in the System Restore section of the Platform SDK

Any changes which you made to anything stored in those areas...has now gone poof!
