We have an emergency situation at work.  We had some mass file deletions of some really important files.  I scanned the backup drive with some different "undelete" programs, and I see all the files there.  The problem is they are all tagged with ~pstmp at the end.  For instance - Q4_Sales_Goals.xls.~pstmp     This is the same for all types of documents.   I tried just changing the extension, but the file still wont open.

Any ideas?
