Accidental deletion is the most common reason for data loss on Windows 7. Generally users tend to delete unwanted files from hard drive to avail space for storing new files. But while deleting unwanted files users accidentally end up in deleting important files. This may happen if the files are deleted in hurry or deleted without checking the file name. Soon after realizing the mistake, first thing they do is checking the Recycle Bin. If the deleted file resides in Recycle Bin then use “Restore” option to get back the file to original location. If the deleted file is not listed in Recycle Bin it just means that the file has been deleted by using Shift + Del key combination or DOS commands (ERSAE, DEL, DELTREE). Files deleted by using above methods will not be moved to Recycle Bin, instead bypasses it. This forces the users to depression because of disappearance of files.

Virus attack is the most dangerous threat to files stored on computer. Virus attack severely infects the files making them inaccessible. So many users format the hard drive to get rid of viruses. But this not only removes the viruses but also deletes the files stored on the drive. One more reason responsible for deletion of files is usage of third party application like anti virus scanner to get rid of virus. Anti virus scanner deletes the files which is severely infected by virus.
Simple deletion of files never removes it permanently from the hard disk. It just deletes the index entry that tells the location of those files and marks the storage space occupied by the file as “available” to save new data. The deleted file remains 100% intact. Unless the new files are written to that space, the deleted files are still recoverable. So stop using the hard drive for further data saving process to avoid permanent deletion of files.
