    How did you delete it?

    If it is a local copy of what you have uploaded to your ISP, could you download it back again?

    Call your provider and get them to restore the backup. First publish the on-web web to a local web server (e.g., on your computer) just in case the restored backup is even worse.

    I don't *have* a provider. This is all running off my personal webserver on my local machine.

    The question is, where does front page put deleted items?

    It is most likely in the "Recycle bin", did you check there?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Some programs don't use the Recycle bin. If you haven't made any normal backups, you should consider a sophisticated undelete program immediately, although this usually means not doing anything else on the computer until you've finished running it. Ontrack has one: EasyRecovery DataRecovery for $200 (licensed for recoveries on up to 20 drives) (there also is a more capable Pro version for more $).

    IMPORTANT: If you plan to use such a tool, immediately stop using the problem computer even for web surfing and make sure to download and install the executable on a different hard drive.

    Invest in Restorer 2000 Pro. http://www.bitmart.net/r2k.shtml Bought it a few years ago, best $30 I ever spent. Bought a personal copy for myself, when I had gone to 'clean up' a users machine at work, and completely lost a 6 gig partition full of his actual data files (not OS or program installs, actual data files, like .pst's, word docs, excel files, etc.). The partition just literally disappeared. (Had reinstalled the OS, and wiped out the first partition, thinking nothing of the fact that the first partition keeps a 'reference' to other partitions on a dynamic disk....whooops). So booted to a clean OS, and had NO DATA! Yikes. Spent several hours trying to manually 'spoof' the system into seeing the drive, nothing worked. Did a little net research, and found Restorer 2000 Pro (has a demo version for free). Downloaded it, it found the missing partition and all of the data. Bought it, recovered the SIX GIGS of lost data....and was able to go to bed that night.... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>.

    Since then, I have used Restorer 2000 Pro several times. The only time it wasn't able to help me, is when I lost a 2 segments of a three drive RAID. I had 2 of the 3 segments 'untouched', but the OS only saw 1 segment. Restorer 'sees' NTFS files whether they've been deleted, and it ignores partitions, but RAID's don't put data directly on the drive, it puts partial data amongst all the drives. Had to find another utility to recover from that (which was about $50, along with $500 in 'tech support', to get the right configuration).

    Good luck! <img src=/S/sailing.gif border=0 alt=sailing width=25 height=25>
