1. Yes, you can recover your deleted files.

2. The best file recovery program is File Restore Professional. It
will also recover files that have lost their file header details and
hence have no file names. Most other products can't do this. You can
also preview your deleted files before you make your purchase. There
is also a testimonial on the companies web site about Microsoft
employees in Germany using it. Further information, trial downloads,
etc., are available here: www.pcrecovery.com
