I dont give a crap about Money or Quicken at this point.

I need the file back (a non-Money file).

Shiftey and Monkey, try re-reading my original post, maybe you will understand my actual question.


Yea, I read the original question. Pull out the stick in your ass. Deleting deletes stuff. You Oops Big Time.


I edited my post just for you guys.
Deleting doesnt REALLY delete stuff.
Hence I got my file back.
*sticks tongue out*


True it just frees the memory address on the HDD for use after the file is deleted. If you do not recover any deleted file ASAP, it will eventually be unrecoverable due to use of the PC and new data replacing the memory address.

I am glad you were able to recover the file. If you want to completely delete a file you will want to download a file shredder. Any good one will allow you to set the number of passes with random data it performs and there are some good free ones out there.

Handy Recovery looks promising. From my reading on their site, it looks like you can recover 1 file per day on the trial version (no mention of file size), and also they link the freeware version of 1.0. Well done baldeagle!

LMAO! NOw some no0b is going to come by interested in getting MS Money and won't know that it is a piece of shit.

But wait.... You mean when I hit the delete key, the thing doesn't really dissapear into nothingness? Crap. I need to figure out a better method of getting rid of my pr0n. LOL


LOL, I didnt buy Money, so no big loss. It came with our laptop.

Besides, who gets RID of their pr0n?

When you "delete" a file, the OS just keeps note that that space is no longer needed, and when something needs to be writtin to the hard drive it can use that space.

So in my case, I just installed all the recovery apps to my second HDD so that there was less chance of my file being totally lost.
