You could setup auditing on the folders where the db files reside to findout who deletes them in the future, but if it was not on before you wont be able to see how, who or what deleted them. See second half of this artical: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/deploy/confeat/13w2kadc.mspx  under "Auditing System Resources"

I use this http://www.binarybiz.com/vlab/ you can install it for free and it will let you see what it can recover. Then you can pay and it will recover it for you. I have used it many times and I have never found a file it cant recover - you will be amazed at how much it sees.
