Pro Tip: Whenever you lose files, never ever start transferring files onto the hard drive. You may overwrite the sector with the deleted files that can still be recovered. Files are NOT gone when you delete them, not even when they are deleted from the recycle bin, you can always recover files as long as you do not overwrite them with other files and that can happen quite easily, because the hard drives believes you no longer use that sector.

When you accidentally delete the files by right clicking them and selecting the Delete button, most of the times they can be restored from the Reycle Bin. What if you accidentally emptied the Recycle Bin and then slammed your head in the wall “Damn! I needed that data?”

Windows does not provide any built-in solution to recover lost files from an emptied Recycle Bin. As a result, you have to be smart enough to download a good program and recover everything on your own. Many people believe that files are permanently deleted, but luckily enough, they are safe – AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT COPY OTHER FILES ONTO THE HARD DRIVE
