Today, I was at school deleting documents I no longer needed on my school account. After clicking empty trash can, I saw a final paper on political science deleted. I'm not in political science, and I wasn't deleting files on my account. FML

^ 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.

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.

Contact you school's IT people ASAP. There's a chance it's still recoverable in some form, as most stuff is not gone forever when you delete it. The sooner you get it checked out, the sooner there's a chance this other person isn't totally screwed over.
