A program running under Windows 2000 saves files as versions of the same
template and an Engineer ran Windows Purge, deleting some 400 part models,
erasing three months of work. Is there a way for a purge to be undone?
Please say yes.

Thank you,

Liam Johnstone

Liam

Is the computer's hard-drive less than 160 Gb's in size and has it been
formatted for FAT32 or NTFS?

If FAT32, you might try downloading and then creating the Norton 4-disk
E-Disk Recovery Utilities, and upon re-boot to the first disk in the set
select the [UNDELETE] option. This will run Norton's file-recovery
programme which (although originally written for use under older MS-DOS
OS's) will handle FAT32 hard-drives provided they are under 160Gb in size.

Download the disk-creator applet from here:

Hope this helps.
