Here's the conundrum.  
  So, after I ran the A1 cleaner, I used the disk defragmenter on my computer and thought I was doing a super good job of cleaning up my computer.  Originally, I had about 2G left on my harddrive.  Now I have ~19G.  
  Here's where it gets interesting.  All of the music/books that were on my computer are now gone.  Except for the 30 or so songs I bought from itunes.  I had about 10G of music/books on my harddrive.  They are not in the recycle bin.  I skimmed most of the A1 messages about the types of files I was deleting but it was a bunch of internet junk and I thought I was good to go.  I searched the harddrive and nothing came up so I couldn't have moved it accidentally.
  I'm afraid to plug my ipod into my computer for fear that the music that is on it will be gone when it is synced to this new incomplete library of music I now have.  
  How can one go about restoring files like this?  I know that it's possible to get back documents even if they've been deleted--that's what I've learned from CSI shows.

If you have any ideas on how to restore my music/book files, I'd be so appreciative!
Thanks a bunch!

   Get a file undeleter.  There are free ones on the internet.
   A1Click removes files and folders in the Temp folder.  Maybe they were in the Temp folder.

Hi -- I am not sure, but instead of syncing could you not restore your i-Tunes files?? I have about 70-80 gigs of media files that I manually back up once a month. Surely i-Tunes lets you buy a new computer and move files to the new computer [new install on your machine] & restore those files?? Just a thought & I could be wrong.

OH --pick your restore program carefully -- I deleted & restored SIX years of music files & recovered, but lost the names of the files & did not think I was up to listening to all the songs & renaming [still have the disk somewhere ]--- it was all my fault -- when I first started with Ubuntu. Now I run Windows when I want an Office presentation or to play games off line. Computer stays in Hibernate for weeks at a time ... I do wish you good luck ----- I do run Win Rescue whenever I use the machine to fix errors from last time I used it. Amazing program.
