Hi,

my uncle had some VERY important files on his computer and they were deleted. He told me he has Windows 2000 on his computer (I'm not certain what this is, but I thought it was for servers) I am going out there in a couple of days to try and recover these files. How would I go about recovering these files. I'm not sure if Windows 2000 has a Recycle Bin, but if it does, these files would have been deleted from that too. PLEASE HELP!! I will use any method or third-party software, but I NEED these files!

A lot depends on how they were delete. if the files system is intact there are several undelet programs you can find. Check the link in my sig under "File and data Recovery".

I haven't used them but they are listed HERE along with a good number of other free and shareware programs.

Windows 2000 is not for servers.
It does have a recycle bin. If you did not know this why do you say they are emptied from there ?

Trust me. The person who deleted the files didn't want them there for a reason , so they made sure they were deleted. Of course, since the I know the person who deleted them, I also know their knowledge of computers and operating systems is VERY basic, so being deleted for them would be emptying the Recycle Bin.
