How do i undo a folder move in XP

Specs: Windows XP
I wanted to move a folder that contained other folders and files. Part of the move went ok until xp stopped because I had one of the files open. I have half of the files that were not moved but I don't know where the other files ended up. I have tried to find them with search and using cntrl z. I think I made a mistake be doing that and other things. Can you please help, these files belong to a project I m doing and represent 3+ months work and possibly my job. Most of these files are in excel.

Where were you moving the file to? Most likely where you moved them there will be a folder that has the same name of the folder you were moving. Are there any moved folders there?

You need an un-delete or un-erase program. Boot to a live cd is best and use tools such as testdisk maybe or other recovery tools.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
