    I mistakenly put My Documents files to the Recycle bin and I cannot retrieve them. Any way I can get them back or is this for a professional, please advise the best course of action. There are important files. Thanks:(

    As I said the whole folder holding 1500+files, I saw a comment saying it was too much for the recycle bin,
    I didnt realise that they werent going to the recycle bin, so they are gone with the wind. Any way I can get at least
    some of them back??

    Thanks for reply. Already tried and guess there are too many: 1500+ I recovered about 249. Guess its a lost cause, I'll live with it. Marking solved. Thanks for your help.:)

    Sorry you couldn't recover more. :(

    For future reference, when this happens, try recovering the files as soon as possible. It makes it a lot easier for Recuva to find the files intact.
