Without getting into the legal aspects of what he did here (and there are some, since he was paid for his work and therefore it is likely that he no longer 'owns' the work according to law): You should immediately go to Google, Yahoo, the WayBack Machine, and any other sites that keep cached copies of pages, and download the latest page versions you can find.

Long time no speak :)
As you were typing I was in the process of checking waybackmachine but no joy; the site was developed in frames with frame busting code at the top, along with the redirect to the main page so that it was presented in the frames again. The site has no listings in google (hence the reason I was asked to sort the site out). Yahoo cache seems to work in a different way to googles or again it might be the frame code in action but every time I click on the link to retrieve the cached version it goes directly to yahoo advanced search, same for MSN (also checked altavista and ask).
I have even checked my Temp Internet Files but again nothing, as I have my browser set to check for recent changes.
But this is the sort of thing I am looking to do rather than get involved in the legalities.
The site is hosted with lycos.co.uk would you think they keep back ups?

Nice one maccas,
That works perfectly, but the main thing I am after is their logo which neither Yahoo or the waybackmachine shows in cache... [hits head off pc for not thinking on saving image]
And also the pages in yahoo cache amount to 3 out of 20

Could the image still be on your computer's own cache?

You could try Google and altavista images, although it may be a downsized version if it's there. For HTML, I've also found gigablast's cache handy on occasion (cos it's old).

Thanks RammsteinNicCage & pixel_juice,
Both very good ideas but again no joy. I suppose I just have to accept the fact the files are gone. Unless Lycos can help out.
You can always rely upon WebmasterWorld to come up with some excellent ideas.

Have you checked with the hosting company whether they have back ups?
