1. Go to the recycle bin icon on the desktop and open it up.
2. Now click on a file to highlight it and go to File and select 'restore'. This will put the file back where it was.
3. Devise a method of making him pay.
Of course, if your boyfriend emptied the recycle bin after his deletion session you've had it - the files have gone forever, unless you fancy forking out a lot of money to have them restored by a specialist company (and we are talking about a LOT of money).
If they are not in the Recycle bin, you may still be able to recover them if they haven't been overwritten on the hard disk. A Google search on "Undelete" should give you an application to use, otherwise email me by clicking the little envelope beside my name and I can email you an Undelete program - it's less than 200k.
<<<If you are going to use an undelete utility, get one that can run from a floppy disk - do not install it on your hard drive.>>>
Good point! The little freebie app I have can be run from a floppy and, as far as I know, doesn't have any restrictions on the number or size of files that can be recovered. It just means that the self-extracting file of less than 200k needs to be downloaded and it can then be copied to a floppy, extracted and run from there.
