How to recover accidentally deleted files

By syedali1975 ·
I am just wondering if some one knows how to recover accidentally deleted files or folders. It happened to me and I am sure it happened to lot of others that we delete some files and later realize that we shouldnt have deleted it.
More over the irony is I have a habit of shift+delete which will lost the files or permanentally delete the files.

I know my friend gave me softwares of which some are free which will recover the files for you, but I am just curious that, those softwares uses some registry entries or something out of the system itself to recover the files, so is there any way we can do it for ourslelf to recover the lost files without using any software??
I believe even shift+delete will not permanently deletes the file unless system reboots and just deleted files will not get deleted permanently unless we later clear the system.

Any help would be appreciated, dont give me free software websites which can recover lost files I know lot of them.

I am using Windows Vista/XP Pro OS.

Thanks in advance.

how to recover accidently files

by technocrat25 In reply to How to recover accidental ...

To recover a file that was accidentally deleted
1.Locate the folder where the deleted file was stored (on the network), right-click the folder, and click Properties. The Properties dialog box will appear.
2.On the Previous Versions tab, double-click the most recent version of the folder that contains the file that you want to recover. A list of files that are stored in that previous version will appear.
3.Right-click the file that was accidentally deleted and click Copy.
4.Right-click the location where you want to place the file and click Paste.
?If the Previous Versions tab does not appear in the Properties dialog box, Shadow Copies of Shared Folders might not be enabled on the shared resource. Shadow copies are copies of files that are located on the file server and appear as previous versions. Please contact your administrator for more information.
?When you copy a file, file permissions will be set to the default permissions for the directory where the copy of the file is placed.
?When you recover a file that was accidentally deleted, you are copying a previous version. You will lose any changes made to the file after the last previous version was created.
?To recover a deleted folder, go to a previous version of the parent folder to view and select the folder to copy.
