Sure, it is possible to recover file deleted years ago from Recycle Bin only if the data is not overwritten, even after you emptied the recycle bin. But if you use the "Shift + Delete" keys and your Recycle Bi is too full to keep the deleted items, your data cannot be found but permanently deleted. To recover deleted files after emptying the Recycle Bin, you can use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for help.
