Okay guys... i usually work very quickly when doing things in windows.. today it turned on me. I accidently deleted a very important folder that had a significant (several gb's) amount of data in it. With such a large folder it asks you if you are sure because it will permanently delete... i thought it was asking something else (i move so quickly) and immediately hit yes... Of course 2 seconds later i realized what i had done. I immediately did a system restore only to find the folder and its subfolders with no contents restored. I was wondering if there was any hope for me? any all? of recovering this data? with good recovery software? thank you Chris.
