Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You would have to have a backup of it, or use a third party app like this one. The description does not say if the software needed to be installed first though, but you can check it out.

    I have used Undelete Plus and FreeUndelete in the past. They are similar. To maximize your chances of recovering the file you should not save anything to the disk before trying to recover the file. Also, the chances are better when the hard disk has more free space. If you decide to use any of these tools, I would recommend reading any readme or help file provided with the software carefully before trying the undelete process.

    As long as you have not saved any new data or run a defrag you may have luck with the app carlosdl mentioned. I have had luck with them as well. For me, personally, anytime I am going to do some disk clean up, I always back up just on the chance I may need to get something back.
