ACCIDENTLY DELETED FILES ON C DRIVE

By samuelfisher2000 ·
I started my Windows 95 machine up using a:drive and it started up into dos. I was then deleting files from floppy disks and I accidently did a del*.* from c: and clicked yes and it deleted files.
I have now lost my autoexec.bat, config.sys etc. from C: and I only have my folders left in C: directory. I do not know if I can undelete files like in previous non-windows version of dos. I typed undelete and it said bad command error. What can I do? I do not think I will be able to reboot my computer with c drive so I have left it turned on.

You will need to reboot the computer using a win95 startup disk that contains the files that were deleted
Insert floppy in drive and boot computer,choose to run setup without cd-rom support,let this process complete eject floppy and reboot.
Open the CMOS control panel to BIOS,from the configuration table choose to boot from the c-drive first.
if this does not work you may have to re-run setup
