Important files deleted, need retrieved, badly.


Overclocked Like A Mother
8 Jul 2002
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,

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,

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
