A user on our network had mistakenly okayed copying a different folder with the same name into the My Documents folder containing another folder with the same name. The original folders contents were lost and the replaced contents can be seen within the folder.

User is running Windows 2000 professional and the filing system is NTFS. There are no backups. Ineed to get a second opinion on the possibility of recovery.Maximum points to the answer with the best explanation and please do not post any links.
