Dangerous - aiming for (car nail), you might cdr it, and at the next

Not meaning to be unkind to Lennart, but we've ALL lost critical files by
doing stupid things.  At least I have, and it cost me several days of
hard (but interesting) grind to recover the bulk of that file.

Aren't there effective file undelete programs for MS-Windows?  There
certainly were for MS-DOS's FAT file system.
