I need help with finding all of my files.

I have a computer that is running windows 2003 Server.  A short while ago all of my files were there.  I look at them now and about 75% have been deleted.  No one has access to delete all of these files nor do they have access to the server.  Never the less i'm assuming its only a fluke.  This being said I need something to recover all of these files if possible.  I have a backup but its useless to me at the moment.  Any programs that are good for recovering files and such that anyone could suggest I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks in advance.

The first thing to do is stop using the drive on the server, as otherwise the data could be corrupted.

I have used handyrecovery from http://www.handyrecovery.com/ previously, that seemed to work fine for me

It does depend on how many files you need to recover though, this one will let you recover one file a day according to the instructions with the demo version. It's not very expensive though

Why pay when they make it for free.  I use PC inspector and always get the best results.

Cherukuri30 The getmy data link that you posted I'm trying it out now.  It would appear that its finding all of the files.  I'll repost.

Ok.  Its finished after 18 hours of scanning.  It would appear that it has found more than I actually have room to recover.  This being the case is there an easy way to recover the files I need?

Sorry for the delay.  getmydata software found about 85% of everything.  Enough for me to buy it.  Thanks for the prompt assistance Cherukuri30.  Take care and thanks again.
