"Hello, I accidentally deleted a Word document that I need for a project and emptied the recycle bin before I realized what I did. How can I undelete files after I empty the recycle bin?"

Is it possible to undelete files?

Windows marks files for deletion and removes them from the file system database when you delete them. This doesn't mean they are immediately gone and you have no chance to recover deleted files. In fact, all that initially happens when you delete a file is Windows makes note that the space occupied by the file is listed as available space for storing new information. Until something new is written to the part of the drive where that old file was stored, your file is still there and you can get it back with a fast and efficient data recovery.

Moreover, depending on how many sectors that file occupies, pieces of the file could exist on your drive for a very long time. If you very recently deleted the file, there's an excellent chance you will recover it, especially if you haven't downloaded a bunch of new files or created several gigabytes of data. The trick is finding a right undelete tool to get them back.

What is the best undelete tool?

For simple recovery of deleted files, one of the easiest solutions is to undelete files by easy recovery software - Data Recovery Wizard.
