Just wondering would they still be in the Recycle Bin.

Thanks buteman, just downloaded and tested that "Recuva" program - appears to work just fine, provided files have not been over-written, obviously.

Any Win 98SE users: note that, although not listed under System Requirements, it DOES WORK on WINDOWS 98SE

Sorry about adding a gloomy thought....

If the files were very large you may have had a message saying something like -

"[XYZ] is too large for the recycle bin, do you wish to delete anyway?"

If that happened then I guess any chance of recovery seems very slim.
