I deleted a file from my "flash drive" that I need to recover. Unable to locate the deleted file in my RECYCLE BIN on my PC that is running VISTA. Is there a possible recommendation on how to recover this file? Locating it through my computer or some software that will perform this function.

Windows doesn't put deleted files from a flash drive into the Recycle Bin, they simply get deleted.
Only files deleted from a hard drive are placed in the Recycle Bin.

However, provided you haven't written anything to the flash drive since that deletion, you may be able to retrieve it using recovery software like this:


There are several others if you care to search on Google, using File Recovery as the search term.
