Recover deleted photos videos data after emptying Recycle Bin
How can I recover files deleted or emptied from Recycle Bin in Windows 8/7/Vista/XP Computer
As computer users, we understand that deleted files will go to Recycle Bin, and we can restore deleted file from Recycle Bin.
But what happens after emptying the Recycle Bin, or deleted the file from Recycle Bin, or files just didn't go to Recycle Bin when they were deleted. Are those files
How Recycle Bin works?
When we delete a file from in Windows 8/7/Vista/XP PC hard disk, windows operating system will send it to Recycle Bin. But if you deleted a file from external
drive like USB drive, external hard disk, the file will be deleted directly, because Recycle Bin sits on local hard drive, not external drive. Also,
Recycle Bin has a limited size. If file size is too large, or Recycle Bin does not have enough space to store the file sent to Recycle Bin, the file
will be deleted directly.
How to get back files deleted from Recycle Bin?
The good news is that all files deleted (even you deleted them from Recycle Bin) are still in the hard disk. Windows only marks the space as free so that
new files can be saved to those space. So you still have chance to recover those files if they are not overwritten by new files. The bad news is that when
you save new file, Windows may store them to the space of deleted files. Once overwritten, deleted files will not be able to be recovered any more.
So it's very important to not use computer after files are deleted.
You should also refrain from any further activity on that computer. Do NOT shut down,
close or reboot your PC. This may cause applications or Windows itself to save data by creating new files, potentially overwriting your lost data and
again making it more difficult to recover pictures. You should also NOT open or close any applications or programs as this may cause files to be
updated and saved to the disk. You should recover your files as soon as possible to avoid permanent loss of your data.
The quickest and easiest way to recover files is to use a specialist
file recovery software package. There are a number
of products available, a good one is Asoftech Data Recovery. I will use it as example to explain steps to recover files.
