      If you deleted them and have not emptied your Trash folder you can restore them. What files are missing?

      depending upon what you did – you can try the recyclebin as previously mentioned – but if they are not there – did you by chance rename or move them – use the start/find files or folders and see if you just moved them.

      There are tons of freeware programs you can use to recover deleted files and lost data.

      The answers above will help. Let me add a couple of comments.

      First: Do you have Norton Utilities? If so, it has a very good file retrieval utility.

      Second: If you do have to download a utility from the internet, save it to a floppy disk and run it from there. Saving it to your hard drive brings the risk of overwriting the hard drive sectors the (removed) files are located in. If the sectors are overwritten, the files won’t be able to be retrieved.

      Third: Do this quickly, because your cache is being written to every time you go to an internet site — and that also is writing to the hard drive, overwriting sectors.

      O.J.
