Restoring to a previous date will not work. That option is only there in case the operating system gets messed up. You will need a third party data recovery software.

OP can probably get his stuff back for free and without much trouble, as long as his gf wasn't more than averagely tech-savvy. HOW: Download a program called "Recuva". I've used it myself to recover deleted files. It's a free download, and it's pretty simple to use. I'm sure other quality recovery tools are also available for free, if Recuva won't work. WARNING: Don't download anything else till you have your stuff back! "Deleting" doesn't actually get rid of stuff, it just marks that stuff as "okay to write overtop", and once it's been written overtop, it's extremely unlikely to be recoverable.

#103 It's a scientific work you need to write to achieve a doctoral degree. You usually need around two years for that: First you have to do some sort of study or experiment, and then write several hundred pages about it.

#149: I would be extremely surprised if anyone anywhere these days is seriously attempting to write, edit, and backup their dissertation strictly without a computer. That shit is enough work already without rewriting or retyping hundreds of pages every time you revise your draft.

Unless the dissertation was physical, I don't really see how the cops could get involved. Unfortunately, there's also little ways to get retribution without fear of legal consequence.

Oh and #11, I believe the word you were looking for is probably "philosophy" not "physiology". But anyway, dissertations are generally for Masters degrees, whereas for a PhD they're generally referred to as a thesis. (I believe, something to do with the length I think.)

#48 you've got that backwards. Dissertation for a PhD, thesis for masters. It has to do with length, impact, and number of studies/topics covered. A thesis is usually 1 central idea, while a dissertation can cover multiple ideas. I'm writing my dissertation right now. If anyone did this to me I'd be in jail for assault. Or in a ball on the floor crying.

#78 I'm only writing a thesis right now and even if someone destroyed that I would probably have a meltdown! Good luck with your Dis and make a couple more copies, just to be safe!!

Guys, there's more than one country commenting here, not just the US. In the UK, many undergrad students write dissertations for their degrees. In general, PhDs here require a thesis.

#78, #127 has it right. Where I am in the UK, your undergraduate work is called a dissertation (although for undergrads, we often use both dissertation and thesis interchangeably). A PhD is referred to as a thesis.

You should have friends outside of your significant other, he may have been friends with this girl before he met his girlfriend so it wouldn't be fair to his friend to start being less of a friend just because he had a girlfriend.

#7 people are allowed to have friends of the opposite sex without being in a relationship. Most of my best friends are guys and I've never thought of dating any of them

OP could go to a professional and pay out of pocket then sue his ex to recover the cost. He'd be pretty much100% guaranteed to recover at least that and I'll bet he'd get more if he felt like tacking on emotional damages due to stress.
