ok, then they are permanently deleted, you will not be able to recover them sorry, this was the only chance we had for this.

I am sorry about this, and if you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
