Rich, he said that he has no backup - I interpret that as no restore points. Because if he had restore points, it would be easy to find the files with Shadow Explorer.

Theres no right or wrong, he said no back up. I think he may have back up and restore. No need for Shadow Explorer its built in with Seven. This is not Vista.
But its an opinion and we give our help based upon opinion. Your suggestion is great, but I dont think we are sure of the facts.

I assume you refer to "Previous Version". I noticed a few times that I was unable to find a previous version although with Shadow Explorer I could find it. That's why I prefer the safe route. But maybe that is only my bad luck.
