recover lost data when Recycle bin was emptied

I am using a HP Pavilion desk top computer with Windows 7. Are there any steps I can take to recover this data? Thank you.

Hi,

 

You could try a third party file retrieval software such as the free option available on the link below.

 

http://www.piriform.com/recuva

 

You stand the best chance of retrieving this file by not doing anything on the PC which has had the files deleted, so install the above application on a USB drive using another PC and then use this to see if you can recover the deleted files.

Hi,

 

Another option you could try is to run Windows System Restore as follows.

 

Shut down the PC.  Windows System Restore is usually best run in Safe Mode.  Tap away at f8 as you start the PC to enter Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and hit enter.  When this has loaded, from the Start Menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and launch System Restore.  Pick a restore point before the files were deleted from the Recycle Bin and then proceed with the restore process.  When complete, Windows will reboot as normal.

Do not worry, you can get back data lost when Recycle bin emptied. Just make use of Remo recover utility to undelete lost data like audio, video, documents, images, etc. from emptied Recycle bin.
