I accidently deleted a lot of files from my recycle bin that I really shouldn't have and I am in really big trouble if I don't get those files back. Is there any way to recover files that you have accidently deleted from recycle bin

Provided you haven't defragmented the drive or done a lot of other file-related changes, you should be able to recover most if not all of the files using a tool like Recuva. Recuva is pretty straightforward and easy to use, but here's a tutorial just in case.

Recuva is your best bet as Andrew says.
Make no changes whatsoever to the system!

Backup, backup, backup!
If the files are that important they should be stored in multiple locations.

What type of files are you talking about?
If it is ten years of accounting data that is one thing but if it just music thats another.
In the beginning there was the command line.

I don't know. It may or may not show the names properly.
