1Why can restore files deleted or emptied from Recycle Bin or Trash?

When you emptied the Recycle Bin or Trash, all files stored in them are gone. Generally, most of people think the files are permanently emptied, because they can't find them with their eyes. That's not the real fact. Actually, when the Recycle Bin emptied, the files in it are only marked as deleted and turn into invisible. That you can't see them doesn't mean they are not there any more. The space taken by the deleted files are marked as reusable for other files. Only when you put other new files to reuse the space, are the deleted files really gone.

For this reason, it's very important to keep the disk original if you want to undelete the Recycle Bin or Trash after you emptied it. Or the files will be overwritten by the new files you put in.
