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.
#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.
I'm sure you could find a way to sue her sorry ass. I'm sorry op but women like this need to grow the fuck up or stay single and not procreate.
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 a 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.
Depending on the state, you maybe able to press charges for destroying intellectual property. It may be worth looking into.
Try to look into data recovery options, I hope you get your dissertation back.
