If you have deleted some of your important files accidently then the first thing you will do is panic.But I am going to teach you how you can recover your deleted files.Using this method you can recover files that have been
  • Deleted from the Recycle bin
  • The files which have been permanently deleted using SHIFT+DELETEkey
  • Files deleted from your Memory Card
Before starting the tutorial for recovering the deleted files I will explain the basics of file deletion which will help you understand that how and why file recovery is possible.
How File Deletion Works
Whenever you move a file to recycle bin or permanently delete a file the file is actually not deleted from the hard-disk instead that file space is marked as free by the operating system so that new files can be written at that space.So, if no new file is written at that place then you can recover the file easily but if you have placed some data in that particular drive then it is possible that the data be written on the same location from where you have deleted your file.It will make the data recovery difficult or impossible.
Note:-Do not put any new data on the Drive from which you have to recover you data because it may hamper your data recovery chances.
This method works on windows platform and is completely free.
