Undelete word documents from the Recycle Bin

If you delete word documents using Windows Explorer, the word documents have been moved to the Recycle Bin. You can easily restore word documents from the Recycle Bin without problem, but the precondition is the deleted word documents are not emptied from the Recycle Bin. So the first thing to do is searching the deleted word documents from the Recycle Bin after you accidentally delete the important word files.

Undelete word documents after emptied the Recycle Bin

If you have emptied the Recycle Bin after deleting the word files, you still have a chance to undelete word documents. When the word documents are deleted from the computer, these word files disappear from your computer. However their contents aren't immediately destroyed. Windows simply marks the hard drive space as being available for use by changing one character in the file table so that the file entry won't be displayed in My Computer or a command line DIR command, etc. If you manage to start an undelete process before Windows uses that part of the hard drive to write a new excel file, all you have to do is set that flag back to "on" and you get the excel file. The file recovery software does find ways to locate the deleted word documents so that they can be recovered easily.
