Vonnie,

There are undelete utilities that can sometimes recover a deleted file. I
haven't heard how well they work with XP. Don't use your system in the
meantime, as the more stuff you do, the more likely the file will not be
recoverable.

There are undelete programs tho' I have not used them with
Windows. If you think something like this might happen again you
might want to set up Autosave; see Help.
