^ I second that notion. Recuva and similar programs are pretty powerful and can, erm, recover most things from places you never thought possible. It's worth mentioning that sometimes, it will only partially recover files, which, in most cases, is next to useless, because the files don't open. It shouldn't be the case with documents. As for OP, YDI, obviously. Look before you delete.
Well let's hope that person backed up their work! Although how can you not notice until the end? Like surely you'd read the file name and know that they aren't your documents.
If its a school computer the op probably sat at the wrong one by mistake. Our school library had like 30 computers, I've sat at the one next to mine when going back to the computers. I did realize right away though, I don't know how they'd delete things without realizing.
