Lost Data

Hi ive been trying to recover some data i lost yesterday but to no avail,

I helped a mate restore his laptop and moved some files i had on a usb stick into my doc's,
then deleted all that was on my stick, (yes the files was moved to this folder i checked), i did this by cutting and pasting,

after a while i noticed the files had gone, where?? i dont know, im pretty sure they were not in the recycle bin, ive tried several recover programmes but they find all but the lost files, have i lost these by cuting and pasting???

any help much appreciated

Whilst its not a recovery prog you could try click here which is useful to track down files on your hard drive. Given that you transferred the files recently they may still be lurking somewhere on your hard drive.
