is there any why that a file can be restored even if it is deleted. Even if it is deleted from the recycling bin

Toni, a couple of your links are broken...

and for Restoration 2.5.14 you really ought to point to Kato's own link at

It should also be mentioned that any file recovery program should be able to be run from the floppy if it was not installed PRIOR to the file deletion because installing it might well overwrite the very file you want to restore.

That is what is especially nice about Restoration 2.5.14 because it can be downloaded to the floppy and expanded onto the same floppy and run from it too.

I've added Kato as the main source, and I just checked the other links about a week ago and they all came back ok. I'll recheck and make adjustments...appreciate the heads up.

If you are active user of computer and work more on your system like laptop and desktop to store your important data. Then there are possibilities that, you accidently deleted a file, removed it from the Recycle Bin or deleted it with Shift + Delete, and then realized that you actually want to keep it.

This is very useful utility that scans your system for deleted files, lists whatever it encounters, and shows you likelihood that you can recover each file. Simply select the files you want to recover, and all selected files then available for use. So this is must tool for all computer users. I think you are not so busy to download Recuva.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
