In Windows OS, there is a feature of Recycle Bin that collects deleted files. When any file is deleted from the system, the deleted file will automatically move to Recycle Bin. Hence, there is a chance to restore accidentally deleted files into their original location. Recycle Bin is very helpful to restore accidentally deleted files due to availability of this feature.
Most of the time data loss occurs from the computer that is running on Windows OS, due to common human errors. Deletion of file using Shift + Del keys is one of the most common reasons due to which data loss occurs. However, the files that are deleted from the system, using Shift + Delete keys combination are not stored in the Recycle Bin. Hence, such deleted files cannot be restored from Windows Recycle Bin. When important files are deleted accidentally using Shift + Delete keys combination, then it will lead to major data loss.
Files deleted using Shift + Delete keys combination will bypass the Recycle Bin. If files are deleted when Recycle Bin is full then such files will also bypass the Recycle Bin. If any important file is deleted accidentally when Recycle Bin is full then it is not possible to restore them back. However when files are deleted from the system, such deleted file’s content will remain in the same location. Computer will not delete actual content that is present in the file. The pointer that was pointing to the file and file index will get deleted. After deletion of the pointer, which was pointing to file and file index, the Operating System will mark the space from which files are deleted as available to write. Before overwriting, any other content onto the space from which files are deleted, it is possible to recover deleted files using good data recovery tool. If any other content is overwritten on to the same space from which file is deleted then such deleted data recovery is not possible using any data recovery software.
