    'accidentally' deleted an account and all its files, how to recover a file?
    So my friend, whos' computer this is, deleted my account and all its files associated with it (when he was mad at me lol) but ridiculously didn't realize or forgot that there was a text document on there with atleast 30 hrs of work on it and i hadn't managed to back it up on another system yet. so is there any way to recover this file? I have filesalvage running currently and tried diskwarrior but that didn't seem to be the proper tool to use. Any mac freaks got any advice? It'd be really nice NOT to have to repeat 30 hrs of work, but at this rate its already taken 10 hrs or so just trying to recover this file. PLEASE HELP!!!!
