Default Reclaiming deleted fonts

Reclaiming deleted fonts

A friend used a program to gather all her fonts into one folder. Then....she deleted the program and folder and emptied the Recycle Bin.

She has her default fonts but would like to recover her other fonts she's been collecting over time.

If she uses System Restore would that recover them.

If not, can you recommend any recovery programs. Preferably free.

Sys restore doesn't 'backup' data files (ie fonts) it only takes a snapshot of system files eg .exe's and .dlls reg entries etc.

Try something like GetBackData do a google on it.
Or active@undelete
Big problems is if the space on the disk where those files were, has been written to.
After emptying recycle bin, the actual files are not deleted but only the reference to them is. The files are still there but are treated as 'unused' space, ready to be written to. If there's been a lot of saving to disk then they maybe beyond hope....

Do a search for .ttf files if they were could be lucky...
