Did you check the recycle bin?

If you are working on an NT Network with roving profiles, copies of the History Folder and cookies are copied to the User's defined "Home" directory on logoff. In turn, they are copied back down to any client where the user logs in and saves a profile. This offers two sources for the files you want:
a) Another PC the user has used
b) Network backup tapes

So--are you trying to recover the files, or are you trying to see if a user can cover their tracks?

If your recycle bin is setup to hold all of those files then you should be able to go into the recycle bin and use the restore command on the file menu. If you have it set to automatically delete all files, do a find for recycle and you will see thehidden recycle folder, you can go into here and get stuff out. If its not in the recycle bin because its too big, I think you can go into DOS and do an undelete but only if you haven't saved anything over that area of the hard drive, I'm not sure exactly how to do this, my DOS is a little rusty.
