recovering data from a win2000 Compaq armada

Help please- One of my colleagues has managed to delete a folder on his laptop deleting about 2 years worth of data. Is there an easy way of recovering it ?

The folder was too big for the recycle bin and was just straight deleted. I have no real experience of win2000 but I could recover it if it was a Win 98 machine any help much appreciated

If you have the software to recover it from a 98 machine then you should be able to use the same on the 2K machine. Other than that I think you would need to send it off to an expert (which may cost you) to recover the data.

As has been said on numerous occasion in here and most probably you yourself have said it, Back Up your data. If your colleague does not have access to say a Zip drive then invest in Laplink. Laplink will allow you to connect to a desktop PC to back up your data.

Sorry if that sounds like teaching granny to suck eggs cowangate.
