You may delete a file with different method, so results will accordingly different. For example, if you delete a file by select “Delete" option after right clicking the file, the deleted file might be moved to recycle bin. If you delete a file by pressing Shift + Delete keys, the deleted file will be erased from your computer immediately.

Key Points That May Affect the Data Recovery Result

Chances for deleted file recovery from Windows 7 are different in different situations. Sometimes, you may recover almost all deleted files. However sometimes, you may only be able to recover a few files after deleting. Below are two possible key points that may affect the data recovery result.
1. The chance of deleted file recovery depends on whether the deleted files have been overwritten
System will mark the disk space as empty after you delete the files stored on the disk. When you store a file to the disk partition, it will occupy some free disk space. If the new added files right occupy the space where stored the deleted files, the lost data will be unable to be recovered. This is also the reason why we always suggest you not writing new files to the partition where data got deleted.
2. Hard disk is physically damaged
The chance of deleted file recovery might be low to none if the hard disk is physically damaged, so you should avoid your disk from being physically damaged due to unknown reasons or accident.

Another Possible Way to Recover Deleted Files on Windows 7

I don’t think there is much easier way to recover deleted files from a backup because you don’t need to rely on any tool. However, when you mistakenly files from Windows disk, you may realize that you don’t have backup. Therefore, if you don’t want to lose important data due to deletion, you had better backup the important files before they get lost. You may use an external device like external hard drive, USB flash drive or memory card to backup your disk data. Of course, you don’t need to backup everything stored on your hard disk, you just need to backup the files that are important to you.
