That's what I was going to suggest. X3 Never used it before, though.

Recuva is excellent :D.

That's a good program, I've used it before.  Unless you've written over the file, you should be able to recover it quite easily with it.

This happened to me a few weeks ago.  I googled recovery software and found Recuva.  It worked for me.

It's worth mentioning that doing anything on your computer like playing games or streaming video increases the chances of overwriting the file data.

There's plenty of Undelete software. Certain Windows optimizer suites also offer that function as one of their modules. One of my favourite software companies, Ashampoo, also has a program for that, Ashampoo Undeleter, but what others suggested up there works too. There's one small problem. Files can usually be restored if there was no new data written over the area where they used to be located. Installing new software to try to recover files even adds to the risk. That's why it's better to have something installed even before the need for using it comes up! But you have nothing to lose now, you can only hope, so just try getting something anyway! Good luck!

The data should still be there just flag as gone. You need to find a program that can find the data. I had the problem years ago so any other information I have is worthless.

if all else fails, you could get softlogica handy recovery. it can recover just about anything.
its not a free program though so id use this as a last resort kind of thing.

try a program called Pandora Recovery. It can get your file back from the temp memory of your computer, but if you wait too long after it's deleted, there's a chance that it is corrupted or just gone forever.

http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd it's totally excessive.... but if there's a problem with your computer... anywhere.... this handy tool can most likely find and fix it.  i ended up using some of it's features to recover files off a hard drive that showed up as unformatted.

Dude, as an I.T. tech I gotta say hirens is practically THE I.T. Tech software toolbox.

STOP USING YOUR COMPUTER FOR ONE THING!!!
If you write files you can corrupt the deleted files. Get hirens on a different computer http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip, burn it, boot from it, THEN run the recovery software to recover the file to a flash drive

I second that, also you can try http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ , burn on cd ... or usb using http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-e... . The "TestDisk" on Data recovery is the best option. Like he said, now your file is on some sector of your hard disk , like raw data, ready for being deleted forever if the next file you copy or install windows put it over it, for that you cant use windows anymore if you not wish lost it forever.

Wow, a lot of suggestions here. Personally, I go through dos and recover it, but a warning. The more you use your computer, the more likely that data will be overwritten. It is still on your computer, but it's put in the back as a temporary file, like RAM, Random Accessible Memory. It's there now, but when the computer sees it as no longer useful and a waste, it will overwrite it with something it thinks it more valuable. Best bet is, if you're not really computer savvy to use dos is to use one of these free programs people are suggesting.

Whatever recovery tool you use... do NOT download it on the same machine you are trying to recover from!! Use another computer, put it on a flash drive, run it from the flash drive. It's best if you can shut down the computer as quickly as possible, possibly uncleanly (so not even system files get written to disk as part of shutdown) and boot from a live CD/USB operating system.

I use AShampoo Undeleter but I'm sure all the other suggestions on here are just as viable haha

If you're using Windows, go to the folder the file was in, right-click it and select Properties, then click the Previous Versions tab. You may find the file in one of the previous versions of the folder.

MiniTool PowerData Recovery - has a deeper scanning algorithm than most others

Glary Undelete can restore your files. And it's free. I personally use it from time to time.
