How can I recover a deleted local profile on a Win2k Pro workstation?

I deleted a local profile on a Windows 2000 Pro workstation. I had a folder on the desktop. Is there anyway to get that information back?
Check the recycle bin. If it is there, restore it. If not, grab an undelete utility and try to grab it. These tools usually work if the area where the data was originally stored has not been overwritten by new files. If the undelete activities don't work and you don't have a backup to restore from, you've lost the folder permanently.
