undeleting accidentally deleted files

I am using MKD 9.1 and was trying to use CD BAKE OVEN to write a presentation to a cd before it was due for class (about 30 min before class!!!!). Any way I deleted the files from the record list AND IT DELETED THEM FROM THE HARD DRIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here is the question: how do I recover/undelete the files? I sorta know the names of some of them, but not all, and not enough to do everything I need to.

If you can help, I would really appreciate it.

I'm pretty sure a program called Midnight Commander can recover deleted files.

Good luck.
