Yesterday I was deleting some old users off our file server and i accidentally selected the wrong user. I selected to also delete the users home folder. I have already tried using Recuva but it only seems to find files from years ago and nothing from this folder. I know there's a good chance I've lost the data but wanted to check with the experts before I give up.

Server is Windows server SBS 2003.

I've successfully used getdataback by runtime.org
http://runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm

You can download the trial version, run it to see if it can recover anything for you, and then if it finds your data, you can choose to purchase the software and activate it without having to run the software again.

Best of luck!
