Recover Permanently Deleted Files

When you delete a file permanently in Windows, what happens?

Actually when you ask Windows Explorer to list the files from any folder, Windows doesn’t go through every file manually. Rather it has an index of all the files in every folder which can refer to, and of course Windows Explorer uses that index to show you the names of the files.

So now just assume that you pressed SHIFT and DELETE keys together. All Windows does is erase the entry from the index permanently. But the contents of the files will be still there, but the thing is you can’t access it. If you could recreate the entry related to all those permanently deleted files, you can get those files back! That’s what Hi5 File Recovery Software does.

When a file has an index entry, Windows makes sure not to overwrite the space on the hard drive where the files were resided. As soon as the files are deleted, Windows is free to use that blank space for new files. If at all any new files are added, the contents of the files will be overwritten. Well, the longer you wait, the harder it will be to recover permanently deleted files. So, it is recommended to stop using the hard drive immediately after you have permanently deleted files.

What actions results in permanent deletion of files?

  • Deleting files using SHIFT and DELETE accidentally or mistakenly without taking backup
  • Emptying Recycle Bin folder to remove some clutters
  • Erasing files through command prompt
  • The files deleted from external storage devices doesn’t go to Recycle Bin folder and lead to permanent deletion
