I deleted a folder full of files I've worked weeks on by mistake, windows shifted the page up when I went to click the sample images folder to delete. How do I recover it, I clicked empty recycle bin and just noticed when it was too late?

Just curious, but why did you need to delete the Sample Images folder?

Because it take's up a whopping 5.6MB and with HDD prices still inflated.....NO SPACE SHALL BE WASTED! :pt1cable:

Next time I would open the folder and select what images or documents I do not need and remove them. It is the contents not the folder that uses drive space. The folder takes almost zero space when empty. The OS does rely on certain necessary folders to be present even if they are empty. Also your reasoning about wasted space is only relevant if you are near full capacity on the present drive. I do regard wasted time spent trying to fix problems as a greater waste than HDD occupied space I am not pressed to use. I guess the issue still is "can you recover the files deleted in error"? Did any of the suggestions work?

You can certainly recover your deleted folders from your system hard drive by making use of any third party application software’s which are available on the internet. The best one that I suggest you to use is deleted folder recovery software. Which gives you 100% result, just download the trial version and see if all your deleted folders are displayed. If it’s getting displayed then you can buy the full version. For more information click the below links:

You can recover files even you have deleted them from recycle bin, you may take a look at this guide: recycle bin data recovery

It works for files which you deleted inside recycle bin, or lost files after you have emptied recycle bin, it also works for shift deleted files where files are not moved to recycle bin, or files that are too large to be moved to recycle bin.

Take note that you should try to stop using the computer, so that new files will not be saved to computer. because new files could use the space of deleted files which will then cause data overwritten.

If its windows then follow those steps and be happy.
It just saved me.

just to highlight you this is the way [ Open computer-> C Drive-> Open User->Right click on user->properties->previous versions-> choose the date/time you deleted the content-> open the location of the content->thre's ur content! -> restore or copy it ]
it takes 2minutes at most. Enjoy

Yes and no. For some Office documents, the software makes shadow copies. These are termed versions and are created during edits and saves. Even if the saved document is recycle deleted the versions remain and can be recovered. Also what the recycle bin does is strips only partial file information making the site on the disk available to be written over. It does not erase the data entirely. This is why you can recover Recycle Bin deleted items, if you act quickly, using software made for this purpose. In fact you never really erase anything via deletes. Software that removes or destroys data over writes the disk clusters with random 1's and 0's. The closest you can come to erasing a disk is to format it.
