Depends on how she did it. Did you look in the Recycle bin? If nothing else has been
written to the disc one of the un-delete programs MAY work. Google for it, there are
lots of them.

Items deleted from FrontPage do *not* go to the recycle bin. They are gone
for good.

Not if the files are maintained locally for each page so that they can
be uploaded after editing by FTP.

However, if they were deleted from Windows Explorer, they will be in the
recycle bin, so there's hope.

The OP didn't say she deleted it from FP. He said "my wife has somehow deleted the
whole thing in one swipe". Could have been from Explorer.

That's also why I said it depends on how she did it.

Unless FP (if that's how it happened) overwrote it, then it MAY be recoverable. Note
the emphasis on MAY.

Could have been. That's why posters need to give details instead of making
people second guess.

Recently on my PC I inadvertantly deleted a website with hundreds of
pages and thousands of hours work - luckily I had a copy. All you have
to do is create a new website with the same name as an exisiting one.
The new one is created with a few starter files and folders, the old
one simply disappears never to return. The files are not in the
Recycle Bin either. THIS IS FAR TO EASY TO DO, and FP doesn't warn you
first.

IF you delete the web from within FP you do get a warning of sorts.

Have you published the web yet?

If so, you should be able to retrieve all pages using an FTP program.
Copy the pages from the website back to your computer.

And don't let your wife "swipe" your computer again!

Shouldn't blame the wife for lack of backup.
