    Hi everyone! A Pleasant greeting, I need help again. So I deleted my files so of course, they went straight to the recycle bin and I emptied my recycle bin but I noticed that one of my important files are missing I need to recover it for my School. I tried the program EaseUs but I need to pay the Program, but I am just 16 I do not have a credit card or any income I need my files really bad please help me :'(. If there is any possible way to recover my files please help me I would appreciate it very much. Thank You and God Bless

    You might try using System Restore to go back to a point before you emptied the Recycle Bin. Since emptying the Recycle Bin does not truly delete files, just removes the pointer to them, a System Restore might put them back. Your best chance for a successful restore would be to do it from Safe Mode.

    TestDisk which is on the link from Noyb is my preferred method for recovery

    System restore does not restore personal files etc only system files. The name tells you that
    It is "System " restore not "Data" restore

    That's odd, I have a file wiping app that warns me to turn off system restore when wiping ANY files from the C drive because it can come back. The silly thing is I am only wiping a single pass to keep my free space clean, and it still warns me as if I'm wiping the instructions on how to make an atom bomb. Stupid wiping app!
