    Hi guys,
    I'm running Windows XP on my home machine currently. I have accidently deleted a file (document) that I need and the recycle bin is empty. This was yesterday. I delted a folder that it was in.
    Is there any way I can dig this out and save it? Any software/program I can buy to recover what's left of it? It was a large family history file on my grandfather and his military service.
    Any help or pointers besides turning on save to recycle bin in the future?
    :sad:

    It's Windows XP with all updates installed. Like I said I haven't started the machine since yesterday.

    Another recommendation is "Search and Recover 4" for $40 at CompUSA.
