    Re: empty folder

    You want to get a legal proof? You can use 3rd-party undelete tools that can undelete the files on the disk. There are many good tools, some of them are very professional.

    BTW, read this:

        I think this is "damned if you do, damned if you dont"

        How can you prove that you have NOT securely deleted files?

        I echo Biggles77's comments!

          Interesting read.

          I think the point of the stroy may be that he has STOLEN intelectual company data when he has started his own business doing the same thing and NOT just deleted the files.

          This is other one of those reasons that you must have a good IT policy in place and that all users read it thouroughly before signing.

          To the OP

          As per what Daiel says you will need to download and use a utility to try and recover the deleted files from the folder. This wil also depend on whether windows has alreadt written to the free space created by the files and whether the files have been securely deleted.
