How to Retrieve Any Permanently Lost Data from Recycle Bin?

As computer users of many years, you won't be unfamiliar with Recycle Bin, which's mainly used to store temporarily deleted files, folders, web pages as well as shortcuts. Prior to Windows 95, when a file was deleted, it disappeared completely. Today, Recycle Bin has a notable feature of allowing users to retrieve those being put inside simply with a click on the restore button. Since Recycle Bin is a special default folder lying and hidden in the root directory of each hard disk partition folder, when you erase a file and send it to the bin, it's merely put into the folder and occupies the corresponding disk space. It won't be truly and permanently removed until it's wiped from the bin or the bin is emptied.

There was a time when I accidentally emptied the folder, which contained some PowerPoint files that I wanted to recover, not having the slightest idea what to do at the time. I was intensely worried and upset due to the fact that the files were in urgent need and there was no time left to redo. Later I learned from the Internet that a great number of computer users were confronted with the same situations, and there were other cases in which they wanted to get their data back yet the data were forever erased, as the files were deleted by a previous press on Shift and Delete, which led to permanent removal, or the deletion was caused on account of formatting, or owing to the fact that the size of the erased files exceeded the limit of Recycle Bin. Given such scenarios, it's of paramount importance to undelete what has been deleted forever from the folder.

Can we still get back the deleted files in Trash? Sure!

When you wipe and move a file to Recycle Bin, it will be stored there and take up the same amount of hard disk space as before. But as soon as you erase the file from Recycle Bin, empty the folder, or the file gets removed permanently for other reasons, it will be deleted from the hard drive which can no longer be retrieved under normal circumstances. However, with a special and powerful third-party tool, they can be recovered magically. When a file is removed under the Windows environment, only the directory information is deleted from FAT or MFT (NTFS), indicating that the file still remains on your disk. Yet first and foremost, so as to prevent the deleted data from being overwritten and losing the possibility of being restored, you should write no more new data on the disk partition.

Coolmuster Data Recovery (for Windows 8/7/XP/Vista) is the powerful software as mentioned to scan the hard drive thoroughly and help you recover the permanently erased files of different formats instantly with great ease.
