    Which Version of Windows are you using? From what I remember, if it's an MSDOS based one - pre 2000/XP - re-start you pc in MSDOS mode and locate the folder then run 'undelete' - follow the instructions. If its XP or 2000 and you don't want to invest in a program to do it, search Google for file recovery programs - there are a couple which will let you try them for free.

    Norton Utilities has an undelete wizard. I guess you can try system restore.

    Go to http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/UK...UK/download.htm and download and install their free program. If you haven't deleted anything since then, you should have no trouble retrieving them.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that the files in the "trash" stay there untill they are actually overwritten because the "trash can" gets full and needs the space for the newly deleted files. Do you know by chance how large the trash is and if it can be configured maually? I have XP by the way.

    I don't know if the Recycle Bin is different on XP, but on 95/98 all you have to do is right click on it and select 'Properties'. From there you can move the slider to set a percentage of your hard drive to be used for deleted files, which can then easily be restored. But the program I mentioned above is for recovering files after they have been removed from the Recycle Bin. They're still not permanently deleted, just moved to the back of the hard drive until that space is needed for something else.

    if its only been a few days I would use System Restore...or scanreg^/restore from a dos prompt and pick a date before you lost it.
