    How would I go about restoring a project I deleted a couple months ago. The project was done sometime this year in spring in Pages and I was wondering if I could get it back because my sister has the same project again and she needs help. Is it even possible to do so?

    You're very unlikely to be able to restore this file. The longer it's been, the greater the likelihood that it's place on the disk has been overwritten (possibly multiple times). A week.. maybe.. a month.. unlikely.. but 8 months? Doubtful.

    You can try an app like Data Rescue II, and see if it can even see the file. But ultimately you'll have to spend money (on Data Resuce II, or it's ilk) to try and recover it.
