Hello,

Hope someone can assist me.

My wife was transfering filed from her desktop to her laptop via network connection and shared "My Computer" folders. She was working on her latop and thought she was viewing already transferred files on her laptop, when in realty she was still viewing her shared connection to her desktop. She began to delete some folders and files all word documents.

If we can, how do we recover these deleted files. I have checked with trash can on both systems and deleted files and folders are not there.

I looked up in the Microsoft file recovery tutorial and it specifically says that files deleted through a network connection are not recoverable. These files and folders must be sitting in some cache. Where are they and how can I get to them.

Your help is welcomed, apprecaited and needed.

Thanks for the links. I downloaded the Restoration freeware but was unable to locate the missing files and folder. I looked on both, laptop and desktop, but nothing. Any further assistance would be appreciated.

Recovering files can be extraordinarily difficult. That's why professionals who do it charge huge amounts of money.

You may have some success with one of the Hex Editors Langa discusses, but if the files have been overwritten freeware will not be enough to accomplish recovery and if the files are valuable enough you may want to contact a professional.

I have had great success with File Scavenger. It is well worth the $50, you might be able to use the trial long enough to recover the file.
