I uninstalled a program (Pamela for Skype), thought it was going to save my old recorded calls, and it didn't. Anyway to get them back?

No. Uninstallers don't send files the recycle bin.

But you may want to check where the program stores that info. It may not have been in the Program Files folder. It may be in your Documents & Settings folder.

Then you'd need disk retrieval software.

It only lists folders that have stuff in them, not the particular files.

Is your old program's folder listed?

Keep in mind that, for technical reasons, the longer you wait the less likely you'll be able to get the files back.

If it is listed, you have two choices, buy the program or crack it.

Yes, the folder is listed.

I'm trying to crack it, but can't find that particular program. Now I'm trying to find another one that may work. It only happened yesterday; hopefully I can recover it later today

Reinstall the app you used to record the calls with maybe?

He uninstalled the program. Uninstalled programs don't go to the Recycle Bin, they get deleted.

I know. The way i read it was that he uninstalled some app that he used to record some conversations with. The conversations should still be there, and be able to be read by the app if it is reinstalled.

He said that the files were gone. But you still might be right if the call history is in the registry.

Get it off of your back-up disk.....oh wait let me guess you don't do back-ups right, just like 99% of the computing world....
