Recovery of "My Documents" before redirect of Target Folder Location

By tmdaviss ·
Can anyone tell me where files from "My Documents" go when the Target Folder Location (My Documents Properies | Target tab) moves new files into the place?

The setup:

Windows 2000 Terminal Server
Windows 2000 Server SP4
Standard User Account

User moves files to new location on server. Selects My Documents Properties and points to new location. Chooses Move... current documents to new location. This overwrites(?) documents just placed there. No backup of files available.

I am unable to find these files 1) in Recycle Bin, 2) using Pandora Recovery file recovery utility. Can anyone tell me where these deleted files should be found?

Downloaded this free program.

Searched for My documents, save to ANOTHER drive to recover it.
If you can, then install to other driver, as to not overwrite the sectors where the deleted files are.
