    Re: Recovering the deleted files in XP Pro?

    Once the recycle bin is emptied (or you have shift+deleted the files) thats it as far as windows is concerned.

    You will need to buy and use some 3rd party software QUICKLY before the files (still on the drive, but with the space labelled as empty) get overwritten by other activity.

    Switch off your PC -- forget "shutdown" as this writes to the drive and then get suitable software ( for "deleted file recovery") on another PC. Remove the drive from your computer and connect it as an additional drive on the other one. Search for the PDFs and restore them to the other PC -- if they are still there.

    Good Luck!
