I can't stand leg puns! tells us more.
Hi guys, OP here. To all of you who say this was a bit ambiguous, I ran out of space, so let me explain in more detail. I had 3 separate USBs, one of which I carry around my neck to prevent this from happening. Everything was clearly labelled and everyone was aware that I was writing a book. As for the USB around my neck, labelled "Confidential - Fuck off", I took it off for a shower, and when I came back... Poof! Gone. To those of you saying I should move out, I'm 16, so no chance of that happening. And when I said "Trashed" I meant literally gone. Everything downloaded onto a separate hard drive and removed while I was out of the house. As to how she guessed my password, I may never know. But yeah, this is my follow up, hope this clears things up somewhat.

I don't mean to hijack but there are programs out there that will undelete data. When it is first deleted, the data doesn't actually vanish, the computer just says that that space is now available to write over. Either find one of these programs ASAP or take it to a professional to do it for you! Try not to mess with it any more than you have to as well or the old data will be saved over and corrupted. Good luck OP!
That's a major invasion of privacy. I would consider having a serious talk with your mother about this.

I know this situation calls for it, but what is with all the "serious talk" comments... not everything needs to be so serious. maybe have a lighthearted talk about how this mother needs to mind her own goddamn business.
Take it to an IT shop, deleted files can be recovered. And what the hell is her problem even if you had been watching porn...
Omg I would've flipped my shit if that happened. I've spent over four years writing a book and have had that happen to me except viruses took over our computer and my brother decided to delete everything off my file before asking me. I was so devastated. I know your pain op
the length of time it takes to write a book has no implication to How good of a book it is. I'm sure there are books that took years to write and were complete shit. also, why can't people understand that backing up files I. the same computer that the original is on its retarded.... If something happens to the computer, it's just like having no backup at all
