    Hi all,

    I friend of mine works in a small office with a few XP machines. They all fileshare amongst each other, no central server setup.

    Anyways, One dude, before he quit this morning, deleted a whole bunch of files off his workstation before he walked out.

    Buddy phoned and asked me if I knew if there is a way to somehow retrieve this info. Their office is in bad need of it, really bad.

    Anyone got any ideas on what can be done, if anything? maybe any software that can perform this function?


    Thanks in advance,


    Heeter

    I can second getdataback (carpo's first link) - don't think I have used it for this particular scenario before but I have had good luck with other recovery options on it.

    Thanks Guys, for all your input,

    The app in the first link did the trick.

    Thanks again,
