Check Before Emptying the Recycle Bin

When you delete files in your PC, they normally go first to the recycle bin. So technically, they are still around. There are cases where people recall these files and in some cases, restoring them from the recycle bin can still be done. If that were the case, then good for the use. But what if he really deletes and empties the recycle bin immediately?

Such are the cases where deleting files manually on any computer should be done carefully before doing the next thing in your mind. One cannot avoid it. For some, deleting a file is practically automatic towards accepting that they are useless. So why leave them hanging around in the recycle bin when you can free up more space for newer files?

Not all people are aware of the real use of a recycle bin. It is the primary location where deleted files fall in. But there are people who configure their recycle bin to automatically discard the files upon deletion meaning that once they are deleted, they are deleted forever. Is that a wise move? For the advanced people perhaps it is, but if you are a novice user, it would be best to avoid being to advance if you cannot really handle it and know how to recover them through technical means.

Space is something important for most PC users. Deleting files and some programs help them get through it. Though new storage solutions such as optical drives and external hard drives are present today, some people just don’t want to adjust to it. Regardless, when it comes to finding these files in your recycle bin, check it out thoroughly before making a decision. It may be something you would regret.

  1. I have emptied my recycling bin by accident. I thought that I had copied all of my files from my old hard drive to my new hard drive but all I did was copied a “short cut” icon. Is there anything that I can do to retrive my files?
