The trouble I had restoring files happened on both OSes: Windows and Linux 
(via GRML Live-CD). My understanding is that Linux respects the NTFS 
permissions and didn't overwrite the files. 

I cannot test this, as the Notebook is in use.

However, I'll try the given link and a reinstall otherwise.

Thanks for all the help, btw!
