Can I Recover Deleted Files Back in Windows 8?
When we deleted a file and it usually first go to the Recycle Bin. Once you find yourself accidentally deleted some files, it is easy to get them back if they are still in the Recycle bin. What if you emptied your it?
In fact, when you emptied the Recycle Bin, deleted files are not gone forever immediately and they're still at some place but the space that they occupied is marked as reusable, and they'll disappear completely once there is new data in. Therefore, make sure that you didn't write new data to the same partition where you deleted those files. Then you have a chance to recover them.
