I was foolish enough not to have created a restore point earlier, and unfortunately I haven't been able to make backup CDs of my files since my CD burner hasn't been working properly late last year- I tried hitting the "Undo" button, but it only brought back one folder and one image out of at least 200mb of artworks
I've resigned myself to the worst- and though it's sad that I might have lost all my recent digital art... I can handle it, but I am desperately hoping that all those files of mine can be recovered- that they're lurking somewhere on my hard drive in the temp files waiting to be found. I'm not much of a hacker, so I don't know where to look but I have been trying! Also, the fact that when I checked how much disk space was being taken up, it doesn't seem as if all the files have been deleted so that gives me some hope as well...
-in advance, I thank you guys for whatever help you can offer... please keep in mind that I may not be able to respond quickly as I am typing this from the family PC at my residence and won't be able to be online steadily- thanks again!
