“Hi, I erased some files from recycle bin by clicking “delete” option instead of clicking “restore” option. Files have completely disappeared from recycle bin folder and I am not able to identify file name entries restore it again. I hope definitely there is a way to restore files that got removed from recycle bin. Can anyone suggest me possible way to regain my deleted files?”
Recycle bin is a location where deleted files and folders can be stored temporarily. When any kinds of files and folders are deleted from computer’s hard drive on Windows it is moved to recycle bin. Recycle bin keeps those file’s and folder’s history with respect its original location, date deleted, size, item type and date modified. These files can be recovered easily using “Restore” option from Recycle Bin until one manually deletes the files from it. But, files may get removed from recycle bin in various situations like:
- Unknowingly pressing “Empty recycle bin” option
- Completely erasing all files and folders from recycle bin to free up some space on drive
- If file, which is deleted from hard drive, exceeds size limit more than recycle bin, it will not move to recycle bin
- Pressing “Shift + Del” key combination deletes a file without moving them to recycle bin
So, one might lose files from Recycle Bin in any of these instances, which cannot be recovered manually. But, it removes only file name entry from recycle bin folder, not actual data from computer. In such situations we can make use of any third party tool to recover files from recycle bin.
