Are the files on a server or a client computer?  What OS are you running?  I was gonna say if the files was stored on a Server 2003 with Shadow copies enabled you could restore that folder to an earlier date.

I would try the following programs and see if you have any luck. If the file was on an XP.

Let me know if anyone of those work for you.

Usually Antivirus doesnot delete the files, they will be moved to some vault directories. please recheck with your antivirus software settings

None of these retrieved the deleted files.
The policy in the Sophos Console is set to delete.

If you have a backup of the missing files you could try that.

Another suggestion may be to do a system restore to an earlier date and check and see if the file is there (provided you are running XP).
