Hi Stingray!

Will a System Restore to a point previous to the deletion do it?

I'm running XpHome, and did a restore this morn and got back a lot of deleted files.

Try to find someone locally with a copy of Norton Systemworks. That will have undelete.exe and other useful tools you can use without illegally installing the software.

I don't want to lecture on the wisdom of backups but - - -

tried the links, look promising but the trial programs only allow recovery of tiny files and the files I need to recover run into many gigabytes hence the lack of back up so I am going to take granger's advice and try systemworks got one coming will let you know how it goes.appreciate the help.

Stingray - I was thinking just see if you know anyone who has it. Anyway, you'll get an option to run some tools without installing the software. But even better, just browse the CD in windows explorer and you will find all those old DOS tools, put there for those who know what to look for (someone told me!!!)
