It's all too easy to cleanse your Desktop from file clutter and accidentally drag important files to your Recycle Bin. When you drag files to your Recycle Bin, they are simply moved to a location for deleting at a later date. They're still very much on your system, even when you decide to empty the Recycle Bin. Yes, you can't see them listed in the usual folders, but the file data is still stored in locations on your drive. Over a long period of time, new file information will overwrite the old data, but until this happens your files are quite easily recoverable.
Recuva is a new free tool from the makers of CCleaner, that will enable you to recover deleted files and other important information that you've sent to your Recycle Bin and then emptied. Remember that files that you've erased, through an application such as File Shredder, won't be recoverable through Recuva.
