What do you mean by "i lost all my data"?

Make sure you are running adiirc as a normal user and not as admin since they would likely use different config folders.

lost all my settings from previous version
including neworks, options, etc.

how do i know if i am running it as a normal user instead of admin?

You can type //echo -ag $isadmin in the Editbox.

if you search the entire hard drive for config.ini, you might discover it in a different folder. The config.bak you found might not even be the correct one, if the date stamp is too old. If you have trouble searching for it using windows itself, this command within adiirc will show all config.ini and .bak in folders where you have permissions, listing them in your status window. Note that this can take a really long time if your hard drive is crowded. Change the c:\ to the root of another folder if you need to search a different drive letter. I show the timestamp to help find the config.ini you were using very recently:

//noop $findfile(c:\,config.ini;config.bak,0,echo -s found: $asctime($file($parms).mtime) $parms)
