Can I retrieve 'My Office' folder on EeePC901?

view story

http://www.unix.com – I have a problem with my netbook (Linux o.s.) I was deleting a few photos from inside 'My Office' folder when entire folder disappeared. Not just the files, the entire folder. This has never happened before and I have lost the files I was working on, as I carelessly didn't 'back up' as I went along. Can I retrieve the folder and/or contents, even with my limited computer knowledge? Thank you for any advice. (HowTos)
