When you go to the Recycle Bin and have a check, it seems that the file was deleted directly, bypassing the Recycle Bin. Then it can’t be found on the hard drive.
Why deleted files are recoverable?
There are many websites that have explained reasons why it is still possible to recover deleted files in details. Here I’d like to talk about this in an easy and simple way. Let’s take hard drive as a book and its sectors as pages of the book. Files stored on hard drive are divided into two parts, that is, catalogue and detailed content. We can find a specific chapter by checking the catalogue, which is exactly how system read and access data on hard drive. Once a file is deleted and emptied from the Recycle Bin, only its catalogue willed by erased and turns blank. Then system deems that pages which was occupied by the files is free and available for new files. In fact, the exact file data still remains on the pages of the book, or we can say the hard drive. Therefore, deleted data can be restored before it is overwritten.
