In this article we will explain how to recover files deleted from the recycle bin with the help of a powerful and very simple software. It’s called AnyRecover and we’ll explain how to use it!
Sometimes it can happen that you accidentally delete files from the recycle bin. Unfortunately, once the recycle bin is emptied, Windows no longer allows you to recover files. However it is still possible in many cases to do something to recover them. Why? Simply when you empty the trash the files are not physically deleted from the disk. In reality the data is never deleted, but simply overwritten whenever possible. We explain better what happens.
What happens when I delete a file?
To understand what happens when a file is deleted from the recycle bin, you need to understand how memory is managed within the hard drive. Disk memory cells can store the values zero and one which are both used to be able to represent the bytes of our files. There is no “null” or “cleared” value. Memory cells always have a value of zero or one written into them. So why do we see free memory or occupied memory?
Memory management in our PC takes place through a system of tables that map the entire mass memory. When file X is created, a certain area of memory is assigned to it. This is written and then it is reported in a table that that specific area has been occupied by file X. What happens if we permanently delete file X? Simply in the table, corresponding to the memory area previously assigned to file X “all clear” is signaled which means that in the future another file can be saved in that location, overwriting what was previously written there. Until then, however, the data from the old X file remains there! Only they are no longer reachable from our operating system natively. And this is where programs like AnyRecover come into play.
How to recover deleted files from recycle bin using AnyRecover
AnyRecover is a program quite simple to use, but very effective. The program allows you to scan folders or entire storage media to find any files to recover. Let’s see how it works in detail. First of all you should download the program from AnyRecover official website. It’s a very lightweight program, so don’t worry. The installation procedure is fully automatic and takes no more than a few minutes. At the end of the procedure you can start the program.
The home page will show you some suggested scan locations, but of course you can manually select the folder you prefer. I didn’t really appreciate the mechanism by which folders are selected, so I advise you to copy and paste the path of the folder from which you deleted the files to be recovered into the search bar. Once this is done, you can start scanning the folder. First of all it will be done a normal scan, faster which will allow you to see in a few moments the files that can be easily recovered. You can preview them and restore them immediately if you want. Meanwhile AnyRecover continues with a deep scan. This process is much slower, but recovers many more files. Depending on the size and quantity of files found, the scan can take several minutes or even hours.
After the scan – but also during – you can preview the recovered files and decide which files to restore. This procedure is also very simple and automatic. You just need to select the files that interest you and press Restore, choosing the location where you want to find the recovered files. Now let the program work. The time taken varies depending on the amount and type of files between a few seconds and several minutes.
We recommend that you use English-language software if you can. Even if present, the Italian translation is not much and sometimes it is not very intuitive. Sometimes the graphical interface has some bugs, but don’t worry. AnyRecover also allows you to scan and recover files from external devices such as a USB HDD or recover deleted files from an SD card or access files from an old damaged PC (Pro version only). So you can alsoand recover photos and videos saved in external devices from your camera. Or recover data from an old PC that no longer works so you don’t lose imported documents or your memories of years gone by.
Con AnyRecover you no longer have to worry about losing your data forever! It is your lifeline, a last chance to recover files accidentally deleted from the recycle bin. That’s all from the software section, keep following us!
