so you deleted it completely? also from Recycle bin? is that it?
Look...its something like this...I checked around...and all I could find is...that if you delete file from WinXP (btw...is that Your OS?)...that it cant be restored....at least not with some utility that comes bundled with XP...but since there is always a solution to everything (well almost always
)...I would recommend You to check this page
with lots of freeware helping tools...then...scroll down and download RESTORATION software
....install it...and click on "Search Deleted Files" and it will automatically list you all files that were deleted and can be restored (with all dates, sizes,folders they were in,etc,etc)...you may also include part or complete name of file you are looking for (in case You remember it)...
Well thats it...I just tried it to see if its really as good as advertised...and...its not...because....ITS MUCH MUCH BETTER!
Really a great tool! The only thing thats important is....that after you mistakenly delete(d) something...that you dont do much copying or other HDD related stuff...cause other files can be written over those deleted ones, thus making them non-restorable (well thats what they say...but in my case...I only had some 5Gb of free space at the time of testing (although I have used entire space up many times-HDD was completely full-so all deleted files should be rewritten also)...butttt....it was still able to find and restore files that were deleted almost a year ago!!!)
So in case this is why you wondered about all that (to be able to restore some files that you've deleted)...then I am sure this one will help you out...
Let me know if you managed to find and restore them...
Good luck! Enjoy!
