I was asked to help someone who had accidently deleted an essential file to the recycle bin so that his computer would not boot. I too have done this on one of the computers I use for hardware tests. Is there a way to restore recycle bin files from a boot disc? (not specific to any particular version of windows) Ended up having to restore windows from the restore disc sadly.
Sadly he only had a restore disc, the rest being saved on a hidden partition on his hard disc I assume. However if it is just one file that's been accidently deleted, then there must be a simple way to restore the contents of the recycle bin from a boot disc.
