Deleting files......

  SAH 17:09 09 May 2004


Could someone please tell me if it is possible to retrieve a file once it has been deleted from the recycle bin. I've heard that there is a way to retrieve deleted files of this type, but I'm not sure if it's possible!

Also try Restoration (just type the name in google it will give you the download site )

Is there any other way of finding deleted files on my PC without downloading additional software?

Not really, once Windows counts a file as deleted it needs additional software to dig it out, even though the file is present and quite intact until overwritten. Handyrecovery is just one of several free packages that can do the job rather well.

I've just tried using Handy Recovery, but without success, the problem with this program is that you can't search for a specific name for a file and also I don't know which folder to look in, because once it leaves the recycle bin, I don't know where it's gone!

are you running norton

No, I'm not, I have got an anti-virus program though. I've just searched again for the file and managed to find it at last, so thanks!
