I just bought a new PC. Put my whole collection of "Have I got News For You" (+ other files) on my new Portable HD and then subsequently SHFT-Deleted them all. (Don't ask me why; 't was a STUPID mistake) Sad

I believe when deleting stuff in Windows (running Win 7 Ultimate) it simply removes the index points (or something like that) so the system thinks they're gone.

Since I didn't do anything after deleting them isn't there a way to simple undeleting them?

Any help greatly appreciated.

You're talking about system restore. You can try that, but it might not work for what you want. If you don't know how to get Windows 7 to undelete or it just doesn't have that option, take a quick trip to www.download.com and do a search for UNDELETE. Pick any of the free or free-to-try programs. Run that program. Make a back-up copy of the files after you've undeleted.

AFAIK, none of the undelete programs guarantees 100% recovery.

Thanks for your quick reply. I was actually hoping Win7 or some program had a feature which could simply undelete.

I'm now searching the web for options.

Shift-delete. Skips the recycle bin. Those of us perpetually low on hd space use it exclusively.

Well after a bit of surfing the webs I downloaded Recuva and I got most of the deleted files back (190 GB out of 210). It took some 3 hours.

Yeah, I used to have little HD space (250GB) so I always SHFT-del everything but Win 7 operates a bit differently (selecting folders in explorer).

Anyways crisis over.
