Thanks all, much appreciated (but I still feel like an eejit  :D ).

Get used to it, you're getting older like the rest of us  :-J  :roflanim:

Please don't - someone I used to be an 'admin' with on a support forum wiped the entire lot once. Literally a blank forum with about 6 years worth of emotional support messages and information gone!   I think she went on to moderate netmums after that  ;)

Not an idiot but human :wave:   I remember finishing off a long report for a child in care that was due to be handed out at a core group meeting the next day, as all the rest of the team were on strike (I was working for an agency) I enjoyed the time getting stuck in...then, my boss brought me a coffee and cake and I accidently pressed delete instead of save so deleted the lot...no back up and I had not saved any of it!!! Thankfully I did remember most stuff so started again...lesson learned for me!

Could have happened to me... I remember that night (5 to 12, of course!) when I wiped my entire hard disc. Argh!
Not to worry - we'll all survive!  ;)

Deleting a file does not delete it - merely changes the file information to tell the computer it can be overwritten. Thus it would have been easily recoverable.

Been there, done that ;).  (then put in place some hourly incrementals to save my ass for the next time I do it!)

Just out of interest how would you go about finding it when something like that has happened?

I thought I was going mad or even madder than I already am  ::) when I couldn't find my posts and then my PMs had vanished  ::)
