Have you already removed the files from your recycle bin? If not why not just load it up and restore them. If not Recovery Software is your only hope. If they cant find the files it is cause the area that they were stored in was already over-written and there is no way to recover them after that.

lol uhh im not stupid enough to use recovery softwares to figure how to restore files from the recycle bin... i just deleted them and been freaking out cause i saw an important file in there that i need right after i hit yes to deleting the recycle bin.
but its not even find the deleted files or any deleted files. i purposely put fake files into the recycle bin and deleted them to see if it would pick it up buts not even detecting them after i delete them... can someone walk me thru a step by step... this software seems to work on my old toshiba laptop but not this dell. i would appreciate if someone could walk me thru a step by step and ill upload pics along the way to try to figure this out

See the problem is that you keep putting files in there. Then removing them. Which overwrites that area on the hard drive. By doing so you remove all chances of recovering your files.

Since you have written to the same spot as the file was, the recycle bin, and since removed the files you have in essance lost all chance of recovering the file. I dont know of any Commercial Software out there that can recover files at that point. Only Gov't apps that can recover files from a destroyed hard drive can help you now.

Sorry.

right but you dont get it that the softwares are not even detecting anything deleted... it detects things on my toshiba laptop but when i run it on this computer it doesnt even show up a recycler "deleted files from the recycle bin" so i have no idea whats going on... i just want it to show up to see if theres even a small chance of getting it back and i only deleted one small small file it was 1kb text file so i doubt itll overwrite the thing im looking for... i deleted that file extremely recently within the past 24 hours and havent used my comp much since that so im sure if a **** software will even attempt to locate any deleted files then that would help... if not i will have to send the hard drive out to a company to retrieve the deleted data. its a brand new laptop with barely anything on it couple programs so im sure they wont have any problems but theyre charging $100 to do it so id like to save some money here

use erd commander 2005 , vcom's systemsuite or some of ontrack's software. your file isn't even deleted. they just turn one number to make it look like it is. it's easy to recover files deleted from windows recycle bin


I'd use erd to recovery files from a computer that had been already been reformatted with windows
