OMG Thank God for Recuva. Got all my files back that were deleted because of an insidious virus. wheww!
Thanks!!!!!!! great help!!!!
Rescuva works great. I recovered my lost files from my USB drive :-)) I recommand this tool :-))
try it on the start menu below and try search and click on the box that say show hidden files on the usb but i'm not sure about one thing that it might infected by virus that it automatically hidden the files

This way costs nothing and needs no add ons. Just go to word or excel, and on the recent files list, click one of the missing files from the list, and voila!! it is back. Now navigate around your files in the open or save as prompts, and rescue them to a safe location. I think the trick here is that the program remembers the pointer that has been removed (hence you not being able to see the files).
