PST file has been deleted

  OK Computer 14:16 09 Jun 2003

I was wondering if anyone could help. I have a friend who has deleted a pst (personal folder) file from his hard drive.

The file is definitely not in the recycle bin. Is there any undelete software available (pref shareware) that could help me retrieve it?

I hear there is an undelete option in Windows? Does anyone know the command for this through a cmd prompt?? Or does this even exist?

I know the lesson here is to backup but still any help would be highly appreciated!!

this program seems good click here

With the Recover4all™ Software you can easily recover (undelete) files that were accidently deleted under Windows. It does not matter if the files went through the recycle bin (and have been lost since the bin was emptied) or were directly deleted. The program is fast and very easy to use. The deleted files can be restored with a few mouseclicks. To prevent files that were already deleted from becoming overwritten, Recover4all™ does not require installation and can run directly from a floppy disk.

Ok first of all thanks for all the replies.

I tried all these applications, and although in there own way they all seem really good, none of them detected the pst file.

The undelete function is for MSDOS and the user is running windows nt, therefore thats a no go.

I'm beginning to think he has definitely lost the file but if anyone else has any ideas I would be very very grateful!!
