I deleted a Win XP home user account, told it to save the files when I did so, and finalized it.

Now, I go to the profile and everything is there but the my documents.

Is there a way to get these back? I have tried undelete etc.... I have set windows explorer to show all files, even system files and hidden files.

They just seem totally gone.

It is not a crisis in this case as I have a backup from a few days ago, but it would save me about 2 hours work if I could easily retrieve them. I am hoping windows merely moved them somewhere I haven't checked heh

Thanks!
