Can I recover the scans for a half-done PDF?

I was using HP Solution Centre to create a searchable PDF & my son came along & closed the application before I'd finished scanning the pages. Are the 83 pages I've already scanned lost for good? Will I have to redo them or is there a secret TEMP folder I've missed where they'll be waiting patiently for me to recover them? I've had to reboot the system since then so I'm even less hopeful now but any help is greatly appreciated.

If you know what file-type the scan process creates (ie the last 3 letters of the filename) you can use the Windows search tool with this as the search criteria *.xxx (where xxx is the file-type)
