need help recovering

oh the powers that be!

my boss wanted me to include several .net project that i have created to a
cvs repository that is unix based. he walked me through a client application
called "eclipse" that creates a local cvs cache/revisions for commit. i was
assured all would be well if i renamed by base project directory under
visual studio project to another name, let eclipse create the cvs'd base
project directory, then delete that directory through windows explorer and
restore my original base project directory name.

tears welled up in my eyes when i went to restore the original base project
directory name only to find one sub folder under visual studio projects
called "cvs". my source code has been erraticated.

i have versions of the source burned on cd. they do not contain the
latest/greatest revisions - a week's worth of work. but at least that's
something. what i'd really like to know is how to reverse engineer the
compiled output from cabs, setup.exe's/msi's, whatever so that i perform
clean-up rather than starting over w/ outdated code. fyi, the applications
were smart device, two standard window's, and a web service.

man, i need help!

not much help now, but 2 rules of thumb i try to follow...

never listen when my boss says'Really its that simple, I promise'
never ever delete unless you have a duplicate somewhere....

i am much better at listening to my first rule than my second...
