    Hi, I recently deleted some files on my computer by accident, without seeing which ones they were. All I need to know is how I can view a log or history of the files I deleted today. Is there a way to see a history of the recycle bin (it was emptied)?
    I don't need to recover them, and I don't need any undelete programs (they didn't work anyways). All I need to do is view the filenames to see what they were.

    There is no "history" for the Recycle Bin. The only history you get is to look at the files before you empty the Recycle Bin.

    If you have already "emptied" the Recycle Bin, your only recourse is one of many file recovery programs. There is no native "Undelete" in XP.
