Windows XP - Recycle Bin

Windows XP OS

My Computer got infected by some virus and deleted most of the files in the Desktop.

Now, i am recovering the data from Hard Disk by connecting to an another Computer.

I am able to fetch the files from C:\

But, how to get the files from Desktop which got deleted. Is there anyway to retrieve from Recycle Bin? Where this Recycle bin is located in C:\ ?

you go to the website to downloady the UBCD, which is a file to create either a bootable disc or you can create a bootable memory stick. Once you create the bootable disc then you boot up the computer using the disc. You may need to change the boot order so that it will boot from the disc or memory stick, you change the boot order in the bios. Once you boot to the media you can run tools to recover lost files.

Your only option is to use data recovery software. It will scan your hard drive for deleted files.


There are many out there to choose from.

you may need to run a recovery program to recover the deleted files, I doubt if the virus would have placed the files in the recycle bin.

I have burnt the Ultimate Boot CD to a memory stick to do this ... it means that I do not have to take the HDD out and place it in another PC.  You can download the UBCD here ==> http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/  There are 4 or 5 tools on there that you can use to recover lost data from HDD's.

Hope this helps

I'm with web_tracker but to answer you question about where the recycle bin deleted files are kept they are in
C:\RECYCLER\ and then there are folder that may contain files as well--will look something like this
S-1-5-21-3086628016-1603236393-1020457269-500. Normally you could right click on files you find in C:\RECYCLER\ or the in folders named like this (S-1-5-21-3086628016-1603236393-1020457269-500) and right click on the files in those folders and choose restore.

Download the CD image, burn it to a CD (or memory stick), then boot off of it and choose "HDD" then "Data Recovery" ==> choose one of the utilities and see whether it finds what you are missing.
