TuneUp recommends that you do not install the trial or any other program after you have already deleted the file as it will use the space left from the deleted items and you can lose them for good. I am supposing this is what happened to my deleted file since I cannot find them even with the utility.

You are correct, the software needs to be downloaded and installed onto a different logical drive (drive letter) as well as the files must be recovered to a different logical drive (not just a different folder). Recovering the files to a different folder on the same logical drive can still overwrite the deleted files you are trying to recover as physical space on the hard drive is not alloted on a directory (or folder) level, but on a partition level.
Additionally if your hard drive is set up as a single drive letter you cannot create a new partition on that drive with something like Partition Magic and then use the new logical drive for the recovery point as it may still refer to a location on the physical drive where your files were stored.

Thanks, that is even more needed information. So you could download the program to a flash drive or external drive if you have one, if you don't have your hard drive partitioned. I am assuming that when you retrieve the files you would also save them to the external drive.
Moral of the story: If in doubt, don't delete! And back up to an external source often!
