Guys, I know it's probably been posted here a million times. But I just lost a lot of
data by accidently deleting it in recycle bin. I have to go to work, and no time
to look for software online. Obviously my pc will remain the same after work, so I'll
have time to get something sorted out.

In the mean time, if you can help with some ideas & tools, please let me know.
And is it easy to retrieve the data and in full - since i've never done this before.

Thanks again

Tam...

I use GetDataBack - http://www.download.com/GetDataBack-Data-Recovery/3000-2094_4-10061631.html and CIA Data Recovery (don't think it's *ACTUALLY* used by the CIA, but it works for me). Most things you can download (that actually work) require an upgrade to the full commercial version before they'll recover the data (rather than just show you that it's there).

Thanks Rhort. I'll try it out when I get back home. Does it show you the actual
files/folders or do they appear as something else?

Photorec i swear by it for in windows recovery, ive only ever used it on SD cards but it will do HDDs too plus you dont have to install it just extract and run! is a very good file carving util.

It wont show folders as far as i am aware just files and thier extensions that yourve ever deleted and the OS hasnt overwritten.

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.

Deleted files can also be recovered with Easy File Undelete software:

http://www.munsoft.com/EasyFileUndelete/

It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect.

All great suggestions, but would a system restore not do the trick as well?

I don't use restore. It's a pain. Plus it takes up so much of your hard disk. The longer
you have you OS then more hard disk it uses. Plus it uses up resources. If i'd system
restore already, I wouldn't have posted this question. Plus, system restore is mainly
for windows files, which might not resolve the problem altogether.

"Ouch!" (Habs picks himself up after a good slap in the back of the head) LOL

I don't use Restore either, as I agree with your comments that it's a waste of resources. The first thing I do after a fresh install is turn it off. Also explains why I know absolutely nothing about its use. Lesson learned.
