Hi KTK,

We've accidentally deleted files before. We use Recuva to recover them. (a free file recovery program) It may work, but the more times the drive is written to since the deletion, the less likely any recovery program will work.

Recuva (Free)
https://www.piriform.com/recuva/download

Here's instructions on how to use it:

Hope this helps, :)

No luck for me - I think that I must have saved over the files way too many times. I actually don't have a clue when I deleted it either.

Thanks for all your help though!

Hi SheWolf,

We haven't used Recuva for awhile, so we don't remember the exact steps to take. However, I did a quickie search on How to use it, and found this how-to:

Hope this helps some. :)

I found some stuff on it myself.  My file was unrecoverable, sadly.
