USB pen drive missing deleted files

hi,

I know this might sound silly, but I have a usb 256mb pen drive and I accidently deleted a file which I then couldnt find anywhere. Not in the recycle bin (win xp pro). I thought there may be a hidden recycle bin on the pen drive so I selected the show all files option in explorer which did not help at all.

Hoping that someone else has an idea

Thanks in advance

You have to use some file recovery software. Your USB drive is probably in FAT32 format so undeletion should be easy. Just make sure you don't write anything on the stick - better use the write protection switch right now.
