I had two computers networked, and the My Documents folder on computer 2 shared. From computer 1 i deleted several files on computer 2. There was no prompt after i hit the delete key, and the recycle bin is empty. the files are gone. is there any way to get them back, or find a list of what got deleted?

Right click on the recycle bin and choose explore. The missing files may yet turn up. (Try it on both recycle bins).

not sure if this will work or not, but its worth a try...There is a program called undelete.exe. Just do a search for Search for Download Undelete and get a free copy. When the recycle bin is emptied the files arent gone, they are just tehre waiting to be written over, so maybe the files are still there. Not sure, hopefully someone else can help you.
