Retriving a folder from Recycle bin AFTER emptied

Recommended Posts

There is a folder I need to get back. I sent it to the recycle bin and emptied it already.  I remember one time reading that doing a reset of the computer to an earlier date (so that those folders would be back in bin) isn't a good thing to do.


So I wanted to ask YOU what options I have to get this folder back.

You are correct. Doing a restore to a previous version doesn't work that well, especially when trying to recover files and folders  

What version of Windows are you running?

See if that works. You might get lucky. If it doesn't, try installing and running Recuva:


There is a free version and a paid version. Try the free, but I'm sure you can upgrade and pony up the $25 to get the paid version. 

In my experience, sometimes it's worth using paid versions of software.

I just wanted to respond again for one to say thank you, and for two to let you and others know reading this, that the link software link worked for me.

I was able to retrieve the files that I emptied out of my recycle bin.  I was able to use the free version of the software.


Thank you again.
