Many people think, by intuition, that deleted files are lost forever if there's no backup on any storage media. But this is not the case, for file names are only tokens. They point to the actual file data. When you delete a file, the name is removed and the data becomes obsolete. And the space they occupy is marked as free. New files will occupy the space, thus overwriting the abandoned files. Therefore, you should stop creating new files after data loss, and should perform data recovery as soon as possible.
