    Restore Local Profile

    Major cock up! A local user profile got deleted from C:\Documents and Settings and then USER.SERVER was deleted with the understanding it was on a roaming profile.

    But it wasn't all documents and email settings were saved locally on in the USER.SERVER folder, so as soon as we found out we looked in recycle bin and nothing was there, tried to restore the system to Friday but that didn't work. So now the user has lost all there work, settings and stuff.

    Main question is - is there any way to restore the Docs and Settings folder? This isn't backed up to the server or anything so can't previous version it?

    Any help would be appreciated but I doubt I will like the answer as I don't think it's possible!

    Thanks
    Simon

    unless you can use something like recuva to undelete the files, its not looking good
    also try and use a boot disc as to limit damage
