    Just finished a final essay for one of my courses, due early in the morning. Long story short: Accidentally deleted it and emptied the recycle bin. IS THERE ANY WAY TO RECOVER THIS FILE?

    THANK YOU.

    Sorry for the caps.

    Sorry, that should have been "trash" and not "recycle bin." I am running Tiger. Please?

    Stop using the computer.
    Try to find a bootable file recovery CD (I think Data rescue has one)
    Let the CD try to find it

    By using the computer you enlarge the chance the sectors on your drive where the file resided will be overwritten by new data, making the chances of recovery smaller with every bit written.

    Good Luck
