How can I recover deleted files

  bridley2004 10:38 21 Jan 05

A large number of files on my hardrive have been deleted and I would like to get them back. They were deleted over a period of 1 - 3 months. My computer runs Windows XP.

I have tried retrieving them via the Recycle Bin but it is empty. I have also tried XPs restore programme but it cannot find my files.

*Does anyone know of any other way I can restore my lost files?*

I have all weekend to try and find them.

Oh, the files are mainly word documents, pictures and movies

Any help would be much appreciated

Kind regards

You could try Drive Rescue click here run off a floppy.

However, if you have been using the PC since the files were deleted they may well have been over-written.

Also try PC inspector click here but as VoG™ has pointed out your files may have been overwritten.
