I was trying to free some disc space and tried to delete the cache in Adobe Bridge. Whe I did that it wiped out every file I had saved on my desctop.

Excel files, PSD Files, Word files and all desktop shortcuts to programs.

I have HUNDREDS of hours of work in some of these files and really need to recover them if possible.

There might be a problem in that I use WindowWasher set to DOD standards to wipe old files.

PLEASE....I really screwed the pooch here.

are you certain that you actually wiped those files?

If you came to me with this problem, I would physically remove the drive from the PC and insert it in another PC and run some recovery software on the drive, but the first thing I would consider is checking to see if you have accidentaly created a new user profile, by checking c:\Documents and Settings\.... and making sure there are not two similarly named profiles.
