Deleted stuff from recycle bin

I was told by the comp. that C:/ was running out of space and was goin to free up space, i thought alright, couldnt hurt as long as i could see what i was goin to be freed up after it scanned. I didnt even think of looking in the recycle bin, thought nothin of it, and okay'd the deletion. There happened to be some stuff in the recycle bini hadn't meant to put there and now its gone. Is there any chance that it is still somewhere on my comp, after being emptied from the recycle bin??

Unfortunately no, once the recycle bin is deleted, it removes the files entirely. If the files are very important to you, there's a small chance that they could still be retrieved, but you would have to seek assistance from a Data Recovery service specialist in your area. There are some programs out there that you could purchase as well, that may be able to recover deleted files as well, and would be much cheaper than a data recovery service would, but there's also no guarantee through either of those methods if the results would be successful. My only suggestion at this point, if you want to increase the chances of the data being recovered, is to try and keep your computer as unused as possible, don't add or remove files, don't put stuff in the recycle bin. The reason I say this, is that files, even after their deleted, may leave remnant information behind on the hard drive platters themselves, and if you overwrite those specific sectors with more information, the leftovers usually get written over as well, thus being lost for good. Hope this helps!

Toshiba Satellite L750 series Laptop keeps telling me D Drive is running out of space


This occurs when the drive is near full...BUT.. if you clear out the recycle bin it may stop the alerts since the recycle bin uses space on the drive to save all the deleted files. Also, so if defragmentation will free up some space. Lastly, go through the file tree and see if there isn't stuff on the drive you don't need or can copy off onto Flash Drives or burn to DVD/CD. Or get a bigger hard drive and start filling it up all over again (that's the most fun)!

Seagate Freeagent external Hard drive won't increase free space when files are deleted?


How are you deleting the files? If you're simply moving them to the trashcan/recycle bin then they're still taking space on your drive. Try emptying the trashcan/recycle bin.

I accidentally deleted the gmapprom.img file from my nuvi 710. Tried to put it back and was told the is not enough disk space???


It may be because you deleted the file, but it's still in the Recycle Bin (still there taking up space until you clear the Recycle Bin). By your trying to reinstall it, you are essentially adding a second copy and running out of hard disk space. Try double clicking the Recycle Bin and click your image file then click "restore this item". Note however that your almost out of space on your hard drive. Try clearing out the junk. Delete as many file, esp large video and image files, as possible.

Then clear your Recycle Bin and then delete all your temporary Internet files. (In Windows XP it's Start, Control Panel, Internet Options and check Delete. When you get the pop up, check everything you can live without).

Then defrag your hard drive. In Windows XP, open Explorer (right click Start, choose Explorer), goto My Computer, highlight your drive C, right click, choose Properties, click Tools and then "Defragment Now". Could take over an hour if your drive is near full.

Depending on how much you are willing to trash, you could be back in good shape in no time. As a bonus, you should notice your computer running much faster after this.

Deleting files does not free up disk space


Note that "deleted" items move from their location into the "Recycle Bin".

So, "empty" the Recycle Bin, in order to reclaim the space.

Or, when deleting:
1. click ONCE to select a file/folder to be deleted
2. hold the SHIFT key down
3. click the DELETE key
4. release the SHIFT key

This will "permanently" delete the file/folder, immediately freeing-up the disk-space.
