Can I get a file back after sending it to the 'Recycle Bin' by mistake?

Yes, if you mistakenly delete a file you can still recover it, provided you haven't emptied your recycle bin. A file in the Recycle Bin is not deleted from your computer until you select "Empty the Recycle Bin".

Double-click on the "Recycle Bin" icon on the desktop; Select the file you wish to recover and click on "Restore this item" (on the left hand side of the screen), this will put the file back to where it was originally.

If you are sure that you no longer need any of the files click on "Empty the Recycle Bin" to permanently delete them from your hard drive.
