Hi Folks,

I accidentally deleted a folder and I press cancel immediately. But now I can't find most of the files in that folder and they're not in TRASH too. I'm using Win98se. What can i do?? :( :(

Million Thanks

You're in a bit of trouble. Especially because you have been using your computer. Stop!

Use another computer to download an undelete utility that runs from removable media. Follow its instructions.

FYI: Delete files are remove from the file systems table of contents, but are (usually) not wiped clean from the drive itself. This is much like tearing the table of contents out of a book, but leaving the pages intact. It would only be a matter of reading the book to create a new table of contents.
