Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

Q: Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

I have many volumes and on each of them there is a recycle bin. Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume? For example if reserve space for Recycle Bin on this volume is over. Or each Recycle bin is only for it's volume?

Preferred Solution: Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

Hello userwin,

Each volume has it's own hidden protected OS $Recycle.bin file that stores deleted items from only that volume. One volume cannot have it's $Recycle.bin file on a different volume. It must be on itself.

When you open the Recycle Bin, it lets you see all the deleted items from the $Recycle.bin files from each volume there much like a library does with included folders.

If you like, you can change the storage size of the recycle bin for each volume to fit your needs if free space is available to do so.

Hope this helps,

Hey all.

About 10 days ago I deleted a Word document in the Recycle Bin. I don't want the contents of the document back, but I would like to know either a) the date of when I last saved the deleted document or b) the date of when I created the document. I haven't created any other Word documents in the last few months, so an indirect method (i.e. dates when I created unspecified Word document) would be equally as useful.

I need to know as if I know roughly what the date is, I'll know what data I was using. It would have been within the last 12 days to five weeks, and whilst I have a good idea when it most likely would have been, I am far more certain on the week, let alone day.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

A:Deleted Word Document in Recyle Bin (not what you might think!)

You'd have to attempt to recover the document to get any such information, the document is the only place where any such information would be.

You could try Recuva free to see if it can recover the document then you can check the Created and Modified dates.

Also, you can go to the folder the file was originally in, right click on the folder name and see if there is a Previous Versions tab, if there is then you can restore the file that way or check the Created and Modified dates there.

Hi I had 2 external hard drives connected and in disk manager I clicked delete on the wrong one? So now the drive wont show up, so I simply created a Simple volume and know it is a RAW drive? How do I recover the files there was over 100GB and some of them are really important such as records and work related stuff, it is currently a RAW partition and all the hard disk recovery softwares dont recognise it because it is a RAW drive? do i have to format it to recover the files? Please Help!?!

A:*Important* Accidently deleted volume in Disk Manager, how to recover?

Do not format the disk.
this would make your task more difficult or even impossible.

There are free partition recovery tools available on the net.

Question the deletion, was it your operating system or are you still able to boot into Windows. I have never been in this position but someone will post some software for you. Just don't muddle the disk any further.

If you are able to boot into Windows this link will give you an idea of what you are looking for. Hang on because I know some forum members have done this will be suggesting more software.

Can a deleted file be recovered from an image/clone hard disk?

A:recover deleted file from image disk?

Welcome to the Board see7102!

Not sure I quite follow your question. You deleted a file from your hard drive, but had previously cloned the drive to another drive? If so, and the file existed when the clone was done then the file is still on the other drive (unless it was deleted there as well).

Or, did you make an image of the drive and saved the image file someplace? If you made an image, then you may be able to access the file from the image with out having to restore the image. For example Norton Ghost has Ghost Explorer, which will let you pull one file out of an image file. Other imaging programs likely have something similar, but I'm only familiar with Ghost 2003

What software was used to make the image?

I just have to empty a SD card; compressing its contents to a 7zip-file takes too much time, and if I have to access the files quickly, I prefer to use a mountable filetype. Thus the requirement to quickly create a VHDX-file, then mount it using the context
Tested using Windows 8.1 without Hyper-V-Role installed.
First, you need to create an empty vhdx-File as a template.
You already have to specify the maximum size this vhdx is allowed to expand to, in my case 255 GiB (255 GiB × 1024 MiB/GiB = 261120 MiB). This can be placed in either your user profile or shared for all users:

Current User: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Templates\All Users: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Templates\
To create the template:
1. Start an elevated command prompt
2. Run diskpart.exe
3. Enter the following commands:
create vdisk file=C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Templates\Virtual-Hard-Disk.vhdx type=expandable maximum=261120
attach vdisk
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs label="Blank Virtual Disk" quick
assign letter=z
detach vdisk
4. Once the template is in place, just run this command:
reg.exe add HKCR\.vhdx\Windows.VhdFile\ShellNew /f /v FileName /t REG_SZ /d Virtual-Hard-Disk.vhdx
Now you just have to right-click in any file explorer window, also on remote network shares, select New > Hard Disk Image File and rename the file as you wish!

I was having trouble with my computer on Friday, it would freeze a few minutes after start up. All programs would be "not responding". I would restart it and the same thing would happen.

I ran Rkill in case there was anything malicious running and nothing was found. I ran Malwarebytes as well and nothing was found. I used combo fix to restore my system to a previous date and the problem persisted.

The system would freeze even at the log in screen if I waited more the a few minutes to log on. Time is some sort of factor.

Hi guys, first time poster here so hopefully this will be at least somewhat bearable.

OK, so here is what I wanted to do, I was looking around the net and stumbled on to some videos about software RAID with USB drives. I know it isn't a very elegant or practical solution but I thought it would just be cool to see it working. So I found this article How to Create a Software RAID Array in Windows 7 and figured that since disk management in both 7/8 are essentially the same it wouldn't be a problem. I then went to delete the volumes on the flash drives and saw the option was grayed out. So in that state the drives cannot be used for what I wanted them to be used for. I did notice that on his tutorial his drives were described as "Basic" and my drives are described as "Removable" I think that somewhere along the line I saw something about removable drives being hard to work with in disk management so that may be it.
So if anyone knows how to do this all help is greatly appreciated!

You can use the undelete option in a 3rd party partition manager. As long as you haven't attempted to change that partition in any way other than delete it, should work fine.

If you have a partition Manager - see if it has that option. Post back and let me know.

I have received my laptop with a 250GB HDD partitioned into two primary partitions (well there is actually four with only 512MB called NVCACHE and another of 1GB as EISA Configuration). One of the partitions is a system, boot, page file ... partition containing the OS (Win Vista Home Premium and contains about 35GB space) and programs. The other is a partition for all the data (~198GB). I am now starting to run low on disk space on the OS partition (<3GB) and wanted to add some more space. I tried to use Disk Management but this did not work because there is no adjacent unallocated space on the same disk next to the OS partition. There is only space at the end of the data disk partition, which I cannot move to the OS partition (at least I do not know how).

Is there a way to increase the disk space for the OS partition? Both partitions have following set out:

Layout: Simple
Type: Basic
File System: NTFS (except for the small NVCAHE which is FAT32 and the EISA does not have any File system)
Status: Healthy

Hi, I accidentally deleted the volume on my 3rd hard drive and now my Windows Vista PC won't even recognize the drive. How can I fix this?

The problem started when I put my old Barracuda 160 gig drive in a usb external case and couldn't get it to work until I put the jumpers on 7-8. The problem was, it was asking me to format the drive which was full of files which I wanted to retrieve. Through a series of now obvious mistakes, I first shrunk the volume backwards, I meant to shrink only 50 MB but deleted all but 50 MB and then stupidly deleted the entire volume.

What I need now is to at least be able to have my PC recognize the drive again and to be able to restore the full volume but would ideally like to still be able to retrieve the data, if that's even possible at this point. Also, why does, or did my computer only recognize this drive in the 7-8 jumper configuration? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's proprietary software that provides this functionality. You may need to scour Lenovo's website for downloads of this nature, or contact them directly to see if they can provide you with a download. Or if the laptop came with backups of this kind where you can install the various software from CDs, then start looking.

I had all my files saved on the secondary Western Digital 160GB Sata HDD, it was listed first at the time... But I accidentally deleted the volume on it.. Is there a way to get those files back? I had photos, movies, music, some other important files. The whole reason for having them on that secondary drive was to save them (kicking myself), until I installed Windows 7 on the new 500GB Sata HDD... I got a copy of Paragon Partition Manager 11 Personal ... and going through the Undelete Partition wizard now... Any help? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

PS. I just did the "delete" option in the Windows 7 installation section for "advanced options", the HDDs were there.. but I accidentally hit delete on the 160GB instead... That's all I did with the drive though.

A:Went through to Windows 7 installation, deleted wrong HDD volume..

To try and answer your question; yes and no. You can take the drive and try to have it professionally recovered. There are some companies out there that specifically recover data from these types of situations. This can be very expensive and no guarantee. I know this not what you wanted to here.

I have 3 hdd in my system and have made notations as to the location of each drive and how the OS see's each of them...ie 0 is hard drive 1, 1 is hard drive 2 and 2 is hard drive 3, which is the way I have mine installed in the hdd cage...I know that hdd 0 is the 1TB drive and hdd 1 and 2 are 320 GB for backups and data storage. Keeping in mind each drive letter that the OS assigns to each of them. So when a re-install of the OS comes along I know what hdd is what and where.

Ok I am going to create a new thread on this, as I had been posting on one dated from 2012 that was an identical issue, but I think starting a new thread would be better.

I have a 1TB Western Digital HDD.

It is not my OS.

It is my data storage drive, with over 850GB of data and applications installed on it; while my OS resides by itself on my SSD.

I also have a small 1GB usb drive.

I was attempting to set up the USB drive as a bootable and was about to wipe it clean.

I was in Disk Management in Windows 7.

The WD showed up as 932GB.
The USB showed up as 934GB

I got the two mixed up, and I accidently deleted the Volume on the WD.

I did nothing else at that point, other then have a complete and total panic attack, nearly lost my dinner into a toilet... then started Googling for a solution or fix.

Google brought me here, to this thread - Undelete Hard disk Volume and recover data!

I can delete $recycled .bin folder but it comes right back. I know it's related to a file called desktop.exe because, it ask me to delete this file whenever I delete the $recycle.bin file.

This will remove all previous restore points. And Restart your computer. Turn system restore back on. Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Create a new restore point for today, if your computer is running good. You will be able to restore to this date in the future.
2. Right click a blank space on the Desktop/Properties/Desktop/Customize Desktop/General. Restore Default. This will restore the Recycle Bin to the Desktop. You can also access the Recycle Bin in Windows Explorer.

For the first time ever (believe it or not), I have deleted a file by mistake and tried to recover it from the Recycle Bin.

But when I try to access the Recycle Bin using Windows Explorer, I get the following message:

D:\$Recycle Bin\S-1 5-18 is not accessible. Access is denied.

FYI, when using Windows Explorer, my Recycle Bin shows up in Windows Explorer as "$RECYCLE.BIN" and shows as having 3 sub-folders. The root directory for D:\$Recycle Bin shows as being empty. The three sub-folders are shown to be:

1. AGK
2. Recycle Bin
3. S-1-5-18

The first sub-folder (AGK) is the result of my installing a software package named Auto-Gordian Knot.

The second sub-folder (Recycle Bin) shows as being empty.

The third sub-folder (S-1-5-18) is where I assume the file would be located. But when I ty to open it, I get that message.

Clicking on the recycle bin desktop icon no longer give me access to it. Right-click, left-click or double-click. It doesn't matter. All I get is the good ol' hour glass. Once that happens, I can access any other running program - once. After that it will hang too. Even if I click the X to close the app down, it doesn't go away. Because I hear the sound that is set to run when a program ends, I think it actually does close, but I still see it on the screen. The only way to back out of the mess without pushing the button, is to use my launcher to shut down the system.

After rebooting, everything is fine - until I try the recycle bin again. I have discovered that opening Windows Explorer and going to the Recycle Bin icon from there, will show a view of the Recycle Bin contents and I can also empty it from there. Once, after emptying it from there, I was able to click on the desktop icon and actually open it. But that is the only time it works, when it's empty.

It's always taken a long time to open. I usually have a lot of recycled files - but not opening at all and causing all this to do is very weird. As I said, I can work around it but it is annoying and if there is a simple fix, I'd love to know of it.


PS - Regular virus and malware scans. Several today. No issues.

I have an XPS M1530 and use Windows 7 and IE 8. I have two separate icons for recyle bin: for full and for empty (custom icons). When it is full and I empty it the icon does not change and vice versa. I have to manually refresh it for the correct icon to appear. I have reset them and restarted several times but it doesn't work on its own. Please advise.

I often want to restore files from the Recycle Bin to a common folder and do other such file operations. However, the limitations on C:\RECYCLER access are annoying.

Is there a way to:

a) change the location of the Recycle Bin?
b) reroute all or most deleted files to a specific folder (say, D:\)?

When I open my recylce bin it shows nothing, only a blank screen, as if there were no files in it. But when I click to empty the recylce bin I get the delete confirmation "are you sure you want to delete these 83 items?" If I click yes, the little empty sound plays, but if I empty the bin again I get the exact same delete message.

Why can't I see these files and why can't I delete them?

Running windows xp with sp2.

So I opened an Office Writer attachment (.odt) from an email and made edits to that document. I hit save but not save as.Tried to open the file the next day but it got deleted. I did some research and realized that was stupid and looked everywhere for advice. So I've gone into temporary internet files folder and I cant find it there. I had deleteted my internet browser history yesterday. Following some random advice on the internet I tried to restore my browsing history by downloading som index.dat reader. Needless to say I am so completely lost. I just need to know if its even possible to recover it. Im willing to goto any computer shop and pay whatever it cost at this point. Oh and the exact message I'm getting is:

C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content\poli352a[1].odt does not exist

A:Need a file from temp internet file but I accidently deleted browsing history

First, download the free Process Explorer.

Run Process Explorer.

Open your e-mail program (mine is Outlook Express).

Open your e-mail message.

Open your attachment (Office Writer attachment (.odt)).

Inside Process Explorer, right-click the new process (from the application used to open that attachment).

Select Properties...

Select the Image tab.

Look inside the Command line bar.

You'll see the exact path to the temporary folder created for the attachment.

Make sure to check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected system files" in Folder Options.

Only copy the part from C:\Users to Content.IE5.

Note: a new folder number is created each time you open an attachment (e.g. IGSDF94V)


"C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\Office10\WINWORD.EXE" "C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\IGSDF94V\Example.docx"

Paste that path inside the My Computer address bar and click OK.

You'll have to look inside each folder manually for the name of your document. The folder number will be different from the one you're seeing inside the Command line bar in Process Explorer.

Do not run a Search. Look very carefully inside each folder. It should be there!

At the first after I upgraded my notebook from windows 8 to windows 10,
I just realize that 1 of my 3 user account is not exist anymore (the Guest account is not there just after I upgrade it into windows 10). As I tried to make the new Guest account and still didnt work (I dont want to follow such a complex email registration required by windows 10 to make a new user account), I thought to delete my secondary user account. However, I just realize that there is a file that I saved in the Desktop under my secondary user account. Is there a way to restore this desktop file that is saved in my deleted user account?

I have opened C:\Users\ but I cant find the folder with the name of my deleted user account.
Can anyone help me?

It's very important yet big file (around 2 GB). Thankss

A:How to restore file in deleted user account (Desktop File)

Hi Blaume, welcome to the Ten Forums.

I am sorry but when you deleted the user account, it's gone, all its files are gone, forever. The only way to get the file back would be to restore a system image made before the account was deleted.

The built-in guest account no longer works in Windows 10. However, you can create a new Guest account by yourself:

I just bought and connected a WD 160gb Passport External USB Drive.
I check the Drive's directory. All's normal.

I then installed Portable Apps Suite onto the USB Drive.
Now when I check the directory of the USB Drive, I see the files/folders that are supposed to be there, which fine and dandy.

But I also see two extra things:
1. Recyle Bin
(contents exactly as the one on my desktop. If i empty it, the bin on the USB drive gets emptied. If I delete something on the desktop. The recycle bin on the USB drive shows that too!)
2. System Volume Information

AA: How did these two files get there?
BB: How do I get them off the USB Drive?

A:Recyle Bin|Shows up in External USB Drive

The recycle bin on the desktop is not really on the desktop. You see, when you delete a file it is moved to a (usually) hidden directory on that drive called recycle.bin. The recycle bin on the desktop shows the contents of all the "recycle bins" on all drives.

System Volume Information contains system restore points and probably some other information but I'm not sure what.

Just check "Hide protected system files..." in folder options and you won't see either of them.
