Free Download Recover Recycle Bin Software
Recycle Bin is a special folder named “$RECYCLE.BIN”, which is located in the root directory of each hard drive partition. However, it is hidden by default, and we can make it shown in partition by clicking “Tools” -> choosing “Folder options…” -> selecting “View” -> unchecking “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)”. After users dragged a file into Recycle Bin, right-clicked on a file and chose “Delete” from the pop-up menu or clicked a file to highlight it and press “Delete” on the keyboard, it will be put inside the “$RECYCLE.BIN” folder. Thus, the deleted file still occupies certain disk space. Only when this file is deleted from Recycle Bin or the Recycle Bin is emptied, can that part of space be released for further use.
Window desktop Recycle Bin is not an actual folder that could store files. It is a virtual folder that collects information about deleted file — their location, deletion date, and file size…then it displays this information to you in a user-friendly way so you can view and perform further actions like permanent delete or restore.When files emptied from recycle bin, they are not actually gone permanently from your computer. Instead, these deleted files will continue to exist in hard drives as raw data. It is the pointers in the address table that have been removed. This means these files are invisible to users and the system will view the space they used to take as free space that can be overwritten. It is way more efficient this way than erasing every file that got deleted by overwriting with new random data.
Only when the raw data has been overwritten or erased from file system, the deleted files will disappear forever. You can use some special 3rd party tools, like H Data Recovery Software, to help you retrieve files from emptied recycle bin. Data recovery software takes advantage of the mechanism of deletion. When we delete a file, the file system only removes the address pointer to that file. But the file itself as raw data is still there. The computer just marks it as “deleted, can be overwritten”. If we put new files in, the computer may notice the newly freed space and cram the new file there. By doing so, the data of the old file, which is a complex combination of ones and zeros, will be re-arranged to form the new file data.
