Please, please do not use all capital letters, it is the equivalent to shouting at us, is very hard to read and may limit the responses to your problem.

Incredimail is very tenatious to remove, and not a well liked program by anyone that needs to maintain computers. Most people I am aware of will not allow it near any PC's they look after, much for the same reasons you have experienced.

Incredimail will likely have rewirtten blank database file over the filenames that held the original data. The original files will still possibly be still on the disk, but spread over an area and not indexed any longer therefore only specialised software can attempt a recovery. It can be a long and painstaking job if the files are fragmented, which most larger database files tend to be.

If the files are critical, the first thing is to stop using the PC immediately, as every use increases the risk that parts of any remnants of the files will be written over.

What is your experience in using more complex software utilities to attempt a recovery?

Several undelete utilities are available, but if it is critical then I would suggest a professional data recovery company should be approached. It is very expensive however.

It depends a lot on what disk format is used (which depends on what Windows version is used)
