I accidentally deleted a folder of documents on my mother's computer while doing amateur tech support. Nothing should be overwritten, because we shut down the computer and hauled it in to the shop almost immediately after. But the guy there claims he can't recover the files.
So, I need to try.
Does anyone have any advice for methods/software? (Ideally inexpensive, since we already paid for one non-success.) Is there any way to save the entire folder, or do the items have to be retrieved individually? She has a Mac Mini running some version of Snow Leopard. (I have one, too, so can possibly network them, though I have little experience with doing that, either.)
