    Hello Zaref,

    You might see if you may be able to recover it using the free program Recuva.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    In that case, you may need to download it again.

    I believe there is an option called deep scanning in that recuva program, open the program up again and make sure you have deep scan checked and then check the whole drive, it will take a long time but it might show you more results, and then you can search the results for the exact program.

    i'll tell you
    it showed parts of the file -although it was a single file-
    it's name was blahblah.exe
    the program showed blahblah.exe12 , blahblah.exe13 ,blahblah.exe14
    i restored all of them but they were no larger than 100 mega

    That was probably due to the way that you download the file, if it came in some kind of newsgroup message the binaries would've been broken up into many files so you have to combine them all to get The exe file.

    There used to be a program I used for the newsgroups called agent, and it would assemble the messages that I downloaded into one binary and maybe there's a way you could use that program to combine those pieces to make the full EXE, It is been years since I've used this so I'm not sure how it would work.
