    Hi,

    Is there a way to recover a Deleted Wordpad file that i deleted accidently?

    Is there a folder which all the junk from the recycle bin goes to which is a hidden file?

    I cant get it backout of the recycle bin because i have it set to delete files immediatly when deleted:mad:

    Lol its my own fault but i need that wordpad file!

    Anyone?

    Do not lose faith good man!

    I have used this countless times, however, once it has been removed from the recycle bin, it enters a folder in which all your other "deleted" files are. When you start switching on your computer, and using it, those files slowly get permanetly deleted.

    Try this though, see what happens, it's called Restoration.

    It can only recover one file at a time, but what the heck..

    If it does what it says, that's a great program joxley1990. I always hated installing new apps and it being stand-alone is great. It is probably beyond MS and the OS so you will have to use a 3rd party tool to hopefully recover it. Hopefully it wasn't like a month or so ago and was just recent because if it has been a while, it might of been lost or overwritten if you added anything recently.

    Yep, Restoration. An excellent app. As computerhakk says, works if other data hasn't over-written. I have recovered wrongly deleted files from flash drives many times with it.
