well, I fudged up, and really not sure if there's much I can do about it, but here it goes. I ran a squared
trying to remove some major adware, and it pulled up a trace of morpheus, and not really thinking that
much about it, I left it on the remove list, figuring it was adware. Anyhow, I open my Wmediaplayer about
6-7 hours later, after removing a squared from my system (pretty sure it cleared any chance of recovering
it through a squared by doing so) to find that by removing whatever trace of morpheus that the adware
removal program found, completely deleted everything morpheus on my computer, more specifically, my
library of music which consisted of almost 3 years worth of collecting off of cds and such... anyhow, I have
always heard that the way they find deleted stuff on computers to use as evidence in cases against people
was that somewhere on your computer the stuff still exists, until you defrag your system. My question is,
is there any truth to this, and if so, is there any possibility of recovering the files manually? Any help is
appreciated.

Thanks~

First I would try to use a System Restore Point from before you modified your system.
You could also try FreeUnDelete 2.0 and see if it can recover your data.
By the way. You data can become unrecoverable simple by daily use of your computer. Not only when you defraq.
