When a file is deleted (either by accident or intentionally), the Windows operating system neither moves nor erases the file. Rather, Windows will designate the area on the drive in which the deleted file (or files) is located as available for immediate use. The file and folder information is no longer listed in Windows, but the file and folder data is still on the drive AND is exactly where it was before it was deleted.

If data has been deleted or lost from the system drive, C: then it is VERY IMPORTANT once it is realised that data has been deleted that the drive activity is kept to a minimum, i.e. that a user stops using the drive, otherwise Windows, or another program, will start writing new data to the newly allocated “free” area of the drive.

Stopping the use of the device (the drive) will minimise the chances of Windows overwriting the deleted data. Once a deleted file is overwritten the deleted data will no longer be recoverable.
