Not unless the data on the HD got deleted or you had another HD pluged in at the same time (both are highly unlikely)
Hope This Helps!

Restoring from backups does not delete or even modify the backups from which you are restoring.

I installed a new hard drive and am now trying to restore my old settings and documents from Time Machine, is there any way I selected the wrong disk and am deleting my time machine back ups?
How are you doing this -- starting from your Recovery HD and using Restore From Time Machine Backups, or did you erase your HD, reinstall OSX, and are using Setup/Migration Assistant?
Are you saying your backups aren't recognized?
If so, and your backups don't appear, you might have been bitten by a bug we've just found. See #D10 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting for a way to tell.
Let us know the results. If you do have the bug, we'll work out a recovery plan.
If you don't have the bug, we need to know just what you've been trying, and what's going wrong -- what do you see, or not see?
