Recover item emptied from NT recycle bin

By obot_d ·
A .dbf file was deleted in error from an NT 4.0 server and the recycle bin emptied a couple of days before the error was discovered. How can the file be recovered? Are there any tested utilities that can help recover this file?
Checked out a coupleof utilities on the web but they fail to recover files deleted from the recycle bin.

Bought Undelete 3.0 but it did not recover the deleted file - possible because an installation took place right after the file was deleted.

Tape backup?? It is a server after all.

It turns out the backup was failing and no one checked. No tape backup.

If you go to Western digital and grab the Ontrack recovery professional. It will recover from any type of HDD. It works great and its free.
It loads Ontrack Crisis Center

I made a mistake. It is not free... Western digital sells the software. Colleague was incorect in stating it was free. But the software really works. He had bought the software which in turns helps me out in recovering files.

Downloaded a trial version which was supposed to show recoverable files without recovering them - only the licensed copy will recover the files -(good justification for buying the product) but the file in question was not listed - possible because an installation took place right after the file was deleted.
