    Try running a search for it in the hope that its backed up somewhere, your brother really should have a backup doesnt he have it on disc anywhere?
    If its gone from the recycle bin I think that its gone altogether. You are best PMing a comp person such as rahaydenuk or amazingtrade they might know some sort of magic fix.

    You might be in luck if you're using Windows 98 because on mine it tends to save documents like that in C:\Windows\Recent without me asking.. Especially if i've been working on it for a while and opened it a few times.

    Go to Start -> Find -> Files or Folders and type the filename, or if you cant remember it select most recently modified and type " *.doc ".


    ?? Hope you're in luck because you'll be up all night helping him with it if not!

    depends on what version of windows u got, but sometimes in c/windows/temp there are word file with ~blabla.tmp, u could try looking through them, tho they only stay on ur comp if it crashed while the document was open.

    Do u have nortons protected recycle bin??? if the file was over written, saved under the same name.......it should be in there, depends on ur comp's settings

    Nope my C drive wiped itself and when I got up to campus with my disc there was something wrong with the computer and it buggered up the disc. I'm just unlucky.

    if you are running windows 95/98/me, you are ok, as you can recover the data.

    If you are on XP/2000, it might be harder...

    there are lots of programs that should be able to get it back although i havent tried them, just go on download.com and search for recover deleted or something similar and you should be able to find something.

    Bless, that was such a good idea and so sweet of you!

    I'm sure he'll appreciate that, even though it was a very dangerous thing to do.
