was smart enough to use Time Machine as their backup system.
Failing that, you could try the usual recovery tools to see what you can retrieve and, as a last resort, DriveSavers should be contacted. Be aware that the last route is not cheap!

My father recently created a new Admin account, then deleted his old one, but didn't opt for it to create an image or save the files on it. Now he wants to retrieve basically photos, songs, and certain other documents he had saved on it.
Any ways to do this? He has downloaded a few applications that tell us there are files to be recovered but to do so we need to pay...
