Recovery of Deleted or Cut and remove folder from NT desktop


Hi
Recently some one has locally deleted a folder containing numerous files from C drive of desk top running NT4 on FAT disc partition system-single drive. I am not sure if it went to recycle bin and got emptied from there or whether it was cut and removed to a removable drive. Folder was several over 20 megabytes size and had over 30 files.
This happened over the weekend.
Questions are
1- How to find what was the removal/destruction mode and
2- How to get the folder back?
I would prefer a freeware or Shareware/Trial option as I wouldn't need the recovery software for any further use. Where to download it from?
Please be clear and elaborate the measures you recommend. My computer knowledge is quite modest.
Thanks for the help

I am not sure is any of these will work on NT but give them a look-see

Take a look at this comprehensive list of file/data recovery programs and services.

This page is full of resources. Very helpful,indeed but one must act practically immediately otherwise all that is recovered is gibberish. Free resources are comparable with the  commercialware. Even if you act early recovery will only be partial. Check what sort of filing partition you have. My NT was not on NTFS but on FAT. Some tools will not work on both types.
Cheers
