How to Restore Deleted Files From Recycle Bin Using Free Data Recovery Tool

Project reports, contact information, sensitive accounts data, work files, business plans, presentations and many other of this stuff available in our PC keep our professional life balanced. No one wants these files to get deleted or lost. If you have unintentionally deleted files or folders, Recycle Bin is available as a lifesaver.

Thanks to Recycle Bin in Windows, even if someone has intentionally deleted files or folder, we can recover them from Recycle Bin but don’t take Recycle Bin for granted because of the following reasons:

  • Recycle Bin WindowsRecycle Bin doesn’t guarantee total recovery of old files, there can be some bits and pieces missing which can make the recovered file corrupt or unusable.
  • Recycle Bin can only store a limited number of files for recovery. Once it exceeds the predefined disk space, it will start deleting or overwriting old files.
  • Many PC cleaning & optimizing software, schedule cleaning tasks, etc. can automatically empty your Recycle Bin without asking.
