If you have the Norton Protected Recyle Bin in operation, it's possible that you can recover it from there. Right click the recycle bin on your desktop, choose the "Unerase Wizard" and if you can locate your file you can recover it.

i looked in unerase wizard and no files are named for me to select... if the police can access deleted files im sure we can so hopefully we can find a way... ty for your help anyway

If you are refering to the police conducting forensic investigations on computers to find shadows on the magnetic platters, thats kind of out of your scope im guessing.

Maybe there is a commercially available product to retrieve material, such as a full msn converstion in detail. Though i would not hold my breath.

Maybe your partner used an eraser programme, not of course that im suggesting its not your conversation you are looking for.

it was a joint conversation with a friend but we need to retrieve it but i guess its lost... ty for you input and advice anyway

this is one of the things where progs like go-back come into their own, where you can go back two or three weeks.....not that it helps you now
