How to Recover Files After Emptying Your Recycling

For as long as the recycling/trash bin has been around, people have been trying to find ways to recover their deleted files. It can happen to anyone. You accidentally delete a file and then empty it without knowing. The good news is that there are still some tips and tricks that you can follow to gain access to your deleted files.

It's important to mention that the best way to never lose a file is to back-up your computer periodically. You don't even need to back up the whole thing, just the files that might be important to you later on. This is also helpful in the event of a hard drive or computer failure. Right now, it's easier than ever to find cheap and effective ways to back up your computer with online services such as Dropbox and Google Drive.

But, if you don't have a backup of your files, then keep reading. If you have deleted an important file, but haven't emptied your recycling/trash bin, the file is still there. All you have to do is open up your recycling/trash bin, right-click the file in the bin and restore it to its original spot. However, if you have already emptied the recycling/trash bin, only then is the file deleted from the computer (Or so it would seem!)

After emptying the recycling bin, your computer simply marks those files to be overwritten. So, if you act quickly enough, you can often recover files that haven't been overwritten with new data yet. There is no way to do this manually, which is why you need to install a third party software (some work with Mac and Windows) to retrieve the deleted files. Here are some top-rated data recovery programs that are worth looking into:

  • MiniTool Power Data Recovery (free version available)
  • Disk Drill
  • EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard (free version available)

But remember, the best way to keep your files is to back them up! Then no matter what happens, you'll never have to panic.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

I have a important website dedicated to the local high school going back nearly 100 years. It was suddenly infected with a virus. Rich at Computer Geek fixed it within an hour. I cannot recommend him enough. I hope it's not for a long time, but the next time I need help, Rich is who I'm gonna call.

A note to let you know how much I appreciate your team's work. Justin is on top of quickly solving any issues, making changes, reliable. Finding you was one of the luckiest days of my 74 years.

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.

I'm very new to the whole idea of having a website / blog. I used Bluehost.com and WordPress.org to create Thepredatorhunter.com and then managed to wreck it. On a Sunday morning I opened chat box with Rich and within a few hours everything was fantastic! This isn't just a company for big biz, if your new and small, The Computer Geek can help you out. In trouble? Stop fretting and start typing in the chat box. You will be glad you did!
