    gaim help please!


    hi

    this morning my gaim wouldnt work so i re-downloaded it and put it in the same folder i had the old one in - as i am on my work computer, it was in a folder named 'personal' along with all my other non-work related things.

    As it installed, it asked me if i wanted to delete the old gaim things and i said yes (since it wasnt working) - but it deleted everything in my personal folder!! I had a lot of files and pictures in there that i really want so can anyone tell me how to get them back??? they are not in the recycle bin

    thanks

    Really sorry abt ur loss. And I am more sorry to tell this that there is really no way to get the data back unless your sys-admin (in case the box is not ur personal comp) had a backup of the disk u used.

    Also can I know what version of gaim you were using? I never heard this problem before. If you are really sure that gaim caused you this trouble you might want to bug report this thing. Good luck for the future.
