How can I recover a file from my emptied recycle bin?
Published: July 29, 2016

In most cases, if you delete a file off of your computer, you can easily recover it after a short period of time has passed. This is because the files you delete from your computer, are not actually gone. All deleted files are moved and stored in a hidden folder called the Recycle Bin. These files are kept there until the user empties the bin, or the older deleted files erase themselves in order to make room for the newly deleted files.

So, if you want to recover a deleted file, one can do so by opening up the Recycle Bin. Scroll down the list until you find your file(s) and double-click the deleted item. A window should pop up, and all you have to do is click Restore. The deleted file should reappear in the original file it was in before deleting it.

If you have already emptied the recycle bin, getting your deleted file(s) back becomes a little bit more difficult. If you are using a Windows computer, you can download the free version of EaseUS disc recovery. This software allows you to preview all deleted files, up to 2gB, and restore files from an already emptied recycle bin.

In order to download this software, the first thing you need to do is:

  • Go to this link: www.easeus.com/data-recovery-software/
  • Click Free Download to install the program. Make sure to uncheck the "Participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program" box near the end of the download or else you will receive unnecessary notifications.
  • The program will launch itself and a pop-up should appear, asking what file types you would like to recover. Pick the file types that are applicable and then hit "Next". After that, select the disc where you lost the deleted file and hit Scan. After the scan is complete, you can preview all the recoverable files and select the ones you want. Your computer might temporarily change the names of your files to a random assortment of letters and numbers. If this happens, click the files to see a previewed image of it. If you emptied your recycling bin recently, your file will probably be at the top of the list. Now, the free trial version only allows you to preview the files that you lost. If you want to recover a file that you emptied from your recycling bin, you must buy the full version of EaseUs disc recovery.

    "I worked with Rich because my website was not working due to being old and out dated. Rich explained to me the cause of the problems and gave me different options to fix the problems. Rich was able to get my website up and running very quickly and would not even charge me! I am so impressed with Rich's honesty. When it comes time I will be calling on Rich to update my site. He has earned a loyal customer. Thanks Rich!!"

    "WOW! I didn't expect my service request to be handled so quickly. I reached out to Rich for a quote to help migrate my WordPress website and heard back from him within hours. He called me to discuss and was super friendly and straight to the point. I couldn't have asked for better service. Computer Geek will definitely be my go-to for all website and IT needs! Thank you!!"

    I want to commend you on the brilliance of the work Computer-Geek has accomplished for expHand Inc. During certain website issues, the company experienced that had the company website taken down through no fault of the company. After Google did not offer the assistance to reload the website, the work Computer-Geek undertook to have the expHand Inc. website updated and reinstalled was remarkable. I would suggest to any company looking for website assistance from development to rectifying big and small problems that they should contact Computer-Geek. The personal attention given to expHand by Rich did not leave anything to chance. He worked with us as if he was a treasured employee of long-standing. How Computer-Geek continues to be of assistance delivers a continuous piece of mind. expHand will be a client for life. All the best,

    If you're looking for a Joomla expert, look no further. We hired The Computer Geek to migrate our Joomla site last summer. The move was smooth and successful with no down time at all. I've contacted Rich with various web development issues since then and he's always found the solution. Exceptional service at competitive prices.

    Rich was friendly & immediately helpful. Couldn't get into my website to update it & had let the situation drag on for months. Clicked on this website & Rich was friendly & immediately helpful, said he could sort things out and did so with promptness & efficiency - not rushing off afterwards, but taking time to make sure the job was done properly. I'd certainly use this company again when I next have a problem. Well worth $120.

    "If you have a problem with your website, or want to add some special functionality, you need to deal with someone you can trust who will fix your problem without making things worse. Finding someone like this is risky. How do you know he or she can do the job? How do you know you won't be left hanging? From our direct experience you can place your trust in these guys. The word 'fantastic' is much over-used these day but these people really are fantastic. Coming fresh into our site and knowing nothing about the specific software we were using, within minutes they were fixing issues. Frankly, I have no idea how you get this good. It's almost super-human. And when they hit a speed-bump, they don't turn around and place the onus on you like many specialists or blame someone else: they just fix it and move on. I trusted our entire site to them - more than 100 man-years of content - and within days we were completely fixed."

    Our website has an interface to another firm's website so that prospective clients can leave their contact information for follow-up and tracking. This important hand-off function stopped working. I found Rich at The Computer Geek via search. He fixed this problem the same day, and improved the screen appearance for the prospective clients as well. The whole process was fast and efficient. I recommend this organization.

    My sites were hacked on July 22nd and Bluehost shut them all down till I could get them cleaned. It couldn't happen at a worse time. I didn't have the time, money or patience to deal with any of it, so I let them sit dead for 6 weeks. I wasn't happy with the company Bluehost recommended to fix them, so I spent that time looking around for other solutions. That brought me to computer-geek. I spent time looking through everything and must have read nearly 100 testimonials. I was sold, but still didn't feel like dealing with my sites. When I finally contacted CG, I worked with Rich Agnew to get everything going. Loved working with him. He was patient, explained things well and within minutes of sending him a startup fee he was working on the sites. Within 24 hours everything was back up and running again. 25 years ago I walked away from computer consulting. I know what a chore it can be both fixing things and working with customers to get that done. Might be why I just let things sit for 6 weeks, didn't feel like reliving any of that. Working with Rich got rid of all the hesitancy I had. If something ever goes wrong again, the only thing that would stop me from calling CG immediately would be cash flow. I'll call them ASAP once that is resolved. If my sites ever progress from hobby sites to money makers, I'll be contacting CG to see what else they can do. I highly recommend anyone reading this that needs help to do the same.
