Getting Files Out of the Recycle Bin
If you discover that you need a file that you have deleted, you can usually retrieve
the file from the Recycle Bin. When a file is deleted, it goes to the Recycle Bin and
stays there until the Recycle Bin is emptied or is cleared to make room for more
recently deleted files.
1 Double-click the Recycle Bin icon on your desktop.
2 Find and click the file you want to retrieve.
3 Click the File menu and click Restore.
The file is removed from the Recycle Bin and goes back to its previous location.
