“Hi friends, my laptop hard drive was running out of disk space so to free up the space and add new files, I decided to delete some unwanted files from my laptop. After deletion, I realized that I have accidentally deleted few files which are very important to me. So to restore that files I checked Recycle Bin and I was shocked, because the files which was deleted were not available in Recycle Bin folder. Can anyone say me why I cannot find those files in Recycle Bin folder and also suggest me a proper way to get back my files from my laptop? Thanks”
Every hard drive’s 10% of memory is assigned for Recycle Bin, so if you delete 10% of the data from entire hard drive, it will be stored in Recycle Bin and you can restore it any point. However, when you erase too large files which are beyond Recycle Bin’s holding capacity, you will get a message that the folder is too big for Recycle Bin. So taking precautions, you should delete individual files from that specific folder. But, many users do not follow this method and face whole folder loss. In such case you can undelete files too large for Recycle Bin using reliable file recovery software.
Situation where files do not save in Recycle Bin:
- If you delete files using “Shift + Delete” command then files will not be stored in Recycle Bin
- Deleting files from command prompt will force it to get deleted instantly without getting redirected to Recycle Bin
- Deleting files from external storage devices
- Removal of files from use of Antivirus tool
- In case you disable saving option in Recycle Bin then files will be deleted directly without storing in Recycle Bin
The above mentioned scenarios also forces deleted files to bypass Recycle Bin on your system and remove them completely beyond manual recovery. Fortunately, deletion process can never cause removal of any files permanently from hard drive. It just removes index value and registry entries of those erased files which are not visible by the operating system. So, if you do not save any new data on hard drive when you come to know that there is deletion of too big files, then such files can be recovered by using a third party file recovery software.
Before deleting any files, it is recommended to keep backup of important data to an external hard drive or in any safe location of your computer. If you fail to backup your files then the file too large for recycle bin recovery can be performed by software called ‘undelete recycle bin’. Where this software efficiently scans and recovers deleted files which are too large for Recycle Bin. It displays each and every folder present in your computer so that you can choose whichever you want and restore files from it. It does not modify or alter any file present in your computer rather extracts information from it and retrieves required files back.
