Does anyone on this list do data recovery?

I had a friend, new to linux but a computer engineering student, working 
on a linux laptop to set up sharing capability with a desktop.  In the 
process, everything in the /home directory on the laptop seems to have 
disappeared.  The last backup was about three weeks ago so it would be 
nice to recover the missing files (although I can reconstruct most of them).

I'm not sure if it was something my friend inadvertently did or if some 
malware struck.

Contact me off list if interested.  I'm a hobbyist, so I probably can't 
afford corporate rates for this service.
