Recovery of a Deleted File

You need a file recovery tool like Fix-It Easy Recovery or the Norton Utilities Undelete program. With-out going into the reasons why not, I strongly recommend not using the PC anymore until you retrieve the lost file - otherwise you may never get it back again. And when using the file recovery program the first time in order to retrieve a file, and it isn't already installed on the system, then do not install it to the hard drive, but instead run it from the CD. Otherwise, the file you are trying to retrieve may be copied over by the newly installed files!
