George, Thanks for the excellent suggestion. The program to which you referred me got all my files back - now I don't have to tell the boss I lost all the case files for the previous semester!!

"Is there an undelete in Windows XP?" for more options. George. ________________________________ From: guispeak@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:guispeak@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Bundy, Keith Sent: 03 January 2005 19:50 To: guispeak@xxxxxxxxxxxxx; VICUG-L@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [guispeak] Malfunction between the chair and the keyboard Well, folks, I've made a truly stupid mistake, and I am wondering if there is any solution for my stupidity. I am using Windows XP Professional, and, without thinking, I hit shift plus delete and deleted an entire folder which I need. Does Windows XP have an undelete feature? Would the System Restore function bring back my folder? Thanks for any help you can give me.
