Recommended solution: Data Recovery

If you've just emptied your recycle bin only to realize that it was holding important files or folders, don't worry. If you act quickly enough, it's almost always possible to recover files that have been emptied from the recycle bin. Special third-party file recovery solutions like ParetoLogic Data Recovery specialize in this sort of task, undoing your "Empty recycle bin" command and giving you your files back.

The recycle bin

The Windows Recycle Bin isn't much more than a special folder that holds files waiting to be deleted. It's meant to give you a "second chance" to reconsider before you "permanently" delete files that you might actually need. According to Wikipedia, the Recycle Bin (or Trash Can) metaphor first appeared with the Apple Lisa, but was widely copied across all file managers. Microsoft's first knock-off of the Trash Can was the Recycle Bin that first appeared in Windows 95.

How the recycle bin works

Usually, when you delete a file, its location on your hard drive is moved to the Recycle Bin folder, which is C:\RECYCLER on Windows XP (and C:\$Recycle.Bin on Windows Vista). The Recycle Bin also holds information on each deleted file, like its original location, date of deletion, and other pertinent data. Subfolders are preserved in the Recycle Bin, meaning that deleting a folder will still keep all of its containing files in the same directory in the Recycle Bin (for easy deletion or restoration).
