    Is it possible to recover files that were deleted using Disk Cleanup? If so, how would I go about doing that? The computer (running Win98SE) has not been turned off since files were deleted.

    Thanks for any help.

    There are many programs available to recover files. Do a google search for "deleted file recovery" to get an idea of what's out there. I know that the same company who makes the 'Diskeeper' series has one called 'Undelete' and has a free demo for it.

    Unfortunately, Undelete, only recovers deleted files in it's full version. But I've checked out other programs and they look promising.

    Have you looked in your Recycle Bin for these files?

    Yup. It's empty. I'm kind of thinking that the file is gone.
