Try this: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/restoration.html  -  but download and install it to a DIFFERENT MACHINE, and run it over the network, as any disk write may overwrite your file.

hi
if what u mean by deleted is that text is deleted and file getting accidentaly saved then....try your luck this way

find all the files in temporary folder (put %temp% in explorer and you land up in temp folder)

copy all files to some other machine or drive
open them one by one with notepad...
there would be lots of junk... ignore
look for some matching word u might expect in your files...
lucky if u find some... save them...rename them...try opening
you may also use some popular document repairing tools available online to do some finishing up on documents not fully recoverable...
all the best
