Recover data deleted by batch file

We had an admin run a batch file they were not supposed to.  That batch deleted the entire directory including the file itself, where we kept other batch files to run.  I have tried several 3rd party tools (recuva, undela, easeus, etc...) to recover the data but they just can not find the missing bat files.  The server does not have shadow copy activated or any other backups.  Is there anywhere else to turn?

We are on windows server 2008

If it has been awhile since deleted, and server is writing other data to same disk, a backup may be your best hope.

Of course you run those tools on the server hosting the files?

I installed those tools on a separate drive to minimize the impact of something getting over-written.

I believe the data on the disk must have been over-written.  No 3rd party programs were able to recover the disk.  We are just going to re-write the files we had in the folder to begin with, and make sure we have back ups turned on this server, to keep it from happening again.

Thanks for the comments!

You should grab yourself the file scavenger trial and give it a quick go-over anyway

used File Scavenger for years and would never use another product
