If you have at least Vista Home Premium and use restore points regularly, this might work for you:http://www.shadowexplorer.com/
other than that you might search for an undelete utility. But the more you use your system the greater the chances the files get overwritten. If nothing was ever deleted I'd never have to buy more drives. That would be like unlimited compression,, like free fusion power.
If you have a recent restore point chances are good you can get a recent version of the file using ShadowExplorer. It does the same thing as "get previous versions of this file" in ultimate editions of Vista/W7. But if shadow copy service isn't running, it has nothing to search. The advantage of this approach is if you have a previous version of the file, it should be intact rather than a fragment retrieved by an undelete program. The relevance of the file depends on how fast the data changes and how old the restore point is. But if you make restore points at least once a day it may be worth fishing out.
