Sometimes Your Trash files are deleted by accident by the same or a user that does not belongs to the system. Human error is that the second biggest contributor to Trash data loss. A user will mess things up by accidentally deleting the contents of a complete disk drive in one misguided keystroke. You cannot do something to bypass the matter of human error.

Someone can easily delete important trash data they have rights to edit just before quitting a nonprofit, and if they empty their Recycle Bin, that data will be very difficult to recover.
• Virus attacks on Trash Data Files
Your trash data in Windows can become inaccessible due to storage device corruption. Virus attack is the common cause behind storage device corruption.

As a result those old files are not accessible to the users anymore. The amount of space you allow for your Recycle Bin can make the difference between being able to retrieve those files or not.
• Formatting or partitioning can cause loss of your Trash files
Your personal Trash data on Windows can be erased by partitioning or either re-partitioning the hard drive, formatting or re-formatting any partition without proper Trash data backup.

Knowledge Base for Trash on Mac OS
The Trash is where any files that are deleted from the Finder in Mac OS X go to. They are kept here so that if you later change your mind, the files can be rescued. If you are a switcher, then the Trash is equivalent to the Windows recycle bin. The Trash can be found at the right-hand end of the Dock (or the bottom, if the Dock is on the side of the display). When you view contents of the Trash, you see only items you placed there and not the Trash folder of any other accounts. If other writable volumes are present, you may also have individual Trash folders on these volumes.
