After you accidentally delete important files by hitting the "Delete" button, you may look for them in the Trash Bin. On most occasions, you will find the deleted files in the folder, but once the Trash Bin is emptied, the files cannot be found in it. Usually, people think that the files are gone forever, but the real fact is that you have a great chance to recover deleted data even after emptying the Trash Bin.
Why can files emptied from Trash Bin be recovered? When a file is deleted from your computer, it is NOT really deleted. It is simply removed from the file directory in the folder. Even though you can no longer see the file in the folder, its contents still exist 100% intact at this point. If you empty Trash Bin(excluding secure emptying), although you cannot see the file in Trash Bin, the file is still not really deleted. The file no longer exists as far as the operating system is concerned and the space it occupied becomes available for re-use by other files. But the disk space does not get re-used straight away, so the data that the deleted file contained will stay on your hard drive for some time to come. Because the operating system doesn't immediately reuse the space from deleted files, it's a plain and simple job for us to undo trash on Mac. But the probability of recovering Trash Mac successfully decreases substantially the longer you use the computer after selecting "Empty Trash" option, because the Mac OS X may overwrite this little free space very quickly with temp files. The greatest chance of Mac trash recovery is to stop using the Mac machine once you wrongly emptied the Trash. Thus, there will be a higher chance to recover deleted files after emptying Trash folder.
