    My step-mother passed away 2 days ago and my father immediately deleted everything of hers - including her Microsoft windows 8 account. He added his own profile as administrator and then completely deleted hers. He did not back it up. Now, being a couple days later, he realized what he has done and actually needs many of the files, pics, etc in that account. Is there any way to restore it? Thanks!

    A System Restore to before the change would probably bring it back.

    System restore won't restore the data. Take the hard drive to a professional, and have them try to get the data restored.

    If you attempt a system restore, you could reduce your chances of recovering anything.
