PST file referencing a deleted path help!!!

Hi Guys,
I backed up an employees PST file and moved it to his new computer. I made the mistake of not copying it to the C drive and rather had outlook reference the USB ( E Drive). I deleted the pst file off my usb and since his computer is new and his old one is wiped I cannot find the old PST to change the path.

Please Please help I will be ever so grateful!!

I know I made a rookie mistake in not moving it to his computer but I sincerely need help on this since I am new to the job.

use some undelete type of software on your USB drive/thing.   Also, if the old computer is still there you can try to use undelete software on it also.  I would pull the drive out of the old computer and connect it to another computer as a 2nd disk.  You may get lucky.

GetDataBack for NTFS is a good undelete program, I have had some better success with it compared to some other programs.  They have a demo version you can use and check if you can see the file.  If you can it then you can try a free program or buy one.

My USB storage has been whiped and reformated so that is not an option. I can however check the previous users computer and see if his pst file is on that computer
