In Windows 7, the operation of deleting files or folders is implemented in two particular ways: you can simply drag the selected files or folders to the recycle bin or right-click the Explorer window, choose the “Delete” command in the content drop-down menu and then confirm the deletion in a opened dialog. The two deleting options mentioned above do not remove objects from your hard drive, but instead move them to Windows Recycle Bin. A computer user can restore those files or folders to their original location at any time.
However, you can also perform permanent deletion of files or folders in Windows 7 by emptying the files from the recycle bin or using a “Shift+Delete” direct deletion command to directly remove the objects from your hard drive. Those files that are completely deleted from Windows 7 can only be restored with specialized data recovery software.

When the scan is completed, you can quickly and accurately locate the files that you want to recover with the beneficial file type search and file preview tools.
