“I thought of cleaning up my hard disk so I started erasing all unwanted files from the drive using delete key. But later I realized that accidently I erased a few of useful files also. So I thought of restoring them from Recycle Bin. I clicked on “Empty Recycle Bin” option instead of “Restore” option due to this I lost all documents completely from Recycle Bin. I am worried because files which I lost are very important to me so please anyone suggest me how to recover files from Recycle Bin?”
