You need to find an udelete utility- pronto. The longer you wait, the more likely your files will be overwritten. Currently they are just removed from the tables but eventually they will be overwritten.

Easy Recovery or Easy Recovery Proffesional will do what you are asking.

You files could still be there, if you get an undelete utility you may still be able to get some or all of it back. Don't open anymore windows close down the system, run down to your nearest computer store and buy the programs. Start up your machine using the system disk/CD, don't boot using your normal start up because the sytstem may write over your files.

You probably wont be able to recover them. So you will have to restart your porn collection.

Just a word of advice. I lost some pictures before also. Since then, I keep a copy on TWO drives at any given time for any files that cannot be lost such as money files and family pictures, etc. Run a backup routine everytime you do a change to said files.

avengeusa: I always backup my data on to DVD/RWs, that way if you accidently delete the file you have a backup. You can add files to a DVD/RW and the old data will be there until you run the erase utility. Another words, if you can create a DVD/RW with 1GB of data, and later add another 300MB of data, and the old 1GB of will be plus the new 300MB will be on your DVD/RW. When you accumulate enough then you copy the data to a DVD/R. The only drawback about a DVD/RW is that they write extremely slowly at 2.4X, which can take awhile, 1GB of data will take about half hour to write.

If they appear to gone using undelete programs. You will have to run a recovery program like Easy Recovery Pro from my first suggestion. That will go over your drive sector by sector and pulling out any recoverable files to another harddrive. This procedure can take 8+ hours depending on how many files you have.

SpentCasing: if you don't have another hard drive, then you're SOL.

Correct. This depends on how badly he needs to get the data back. If it was irreplaceable data, I'd shellout the extra $150 for a drive and software to get it back. But the longer his current drive is active, the more likey the files will be written over on a sector by sector basis. Even using the recovery program, the chances are not great. I've recovered 98% of a drive on one occasion and barely any data that was usable on another.
