    You can't really "unempty" it.

    First, use your computer as little as possible - everything you do can potentially destroy the data forever. Close all programs.

    Time to try some file recovery programs. PC Inspector File Recovery is free. Download it with some other computer! Put it on a CD or a flash disk and take it to your computer that way.

    sounds to me like you need to have a little trust in your relationship, if you dont then the **** has already hit the fan, as of invading his privacy! i will not help you

    thanks

    ok well thanks anyway. but can i juat say, i seen a bit of what my bf said and i am sure that if you seen someone that you love tell another person that he loves her and is willing to travel 6 hours to see her and would like to re live old times in the net i think you would like to no what else it said so you dont have to waist another 7 years. sorry i am just a bit messed up bout this hole thing is so much deeper but thank-you heaps for the help

    well that sucks, ex gf? damn home wreckers!
    if you really wanna know what hes saying, just keylog him, its your computer right? i think its legal to keylog your own computer

    If it's gone this far already, get rid of that guy. If he needs to delete the traces of his (ab)using your PC, he does not deserve your trust.
    Tell him to pack his things and start driving the six hours to his ex, and also tell him not to bother to come back EVER.
    Good riddance!

    yer i no what i should be doing but its so hard to leave someone that you love so badly. i have seen a few things that they have said and lets just say most of it is shaggin and how they feel bout each other and stuff like that. We have been together 7 years and we have dun so many things i find it so hard to let go

    Personal counselling is well beyond the scope of this TECHNICAL website.
    But if you re-read your last post, you say you've been together for 7 yours, and your feller is still interested in getting it off with his ex, what where you doing all those 7 years?
    Sounds to me like you both were "hanging in there" rather than being committed to one another.
    If one wants out, let him go, better now than later!
    The real Mr Right is bound to show up one of these days!
