How to Recover Recycle Bin on Windows 7?

Windows 7 is available in six different Editions i.e. Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate, Starter, and Home Basic. Windows 7 provides several new features like preview, jump list, home group, etc. The preview feature helps you to move between multiple programs easily. The Windows 7 system offers 2 different methods to perform deletion operation-

  • Dragging the object to the Recycle Bin

Recycle Bin is the area that contains all the deleted data that can be emptied manually. Windows 7 allocates up to 10 percent of disk space for Recycle Bin and the size of the Recycle Bin can also be changed. Recycle Bin provides protection against accidental deletion of files i.e. by letting the users restore the deleted files with ease. However, there are certain instances that cause permanent deletion of files from the Windows 7 recycle bin folder.

  • Accidentally emptying Recycle Bin: Clicking on the “Empty Recycle Bin” option mistakenly on the Windows 7 toolbar will make you lose all the files/folders from the recycle bin. The deletion occurred due to such a user action cannot be revived using restore option
  • Deletion of files using Shift + Delete keys: Generally, files or folders can be deleted either by using Windows Explorer or by using Shift + Del keys. The files deleted using Shift Delete keys bypasses the Recycle Bin instead of moving to the Recycle Bin. Unintentionally applying Shift-Delete on the important files causes permanent loss of files from the Windows 7 PC
