Yesterday, I accidentally deleted two quite important txt files (used in Notepad), and then proceeded to delete them from my Recycle Bin. I have read of several programs that claimed to recover deleted files, but none have done the trick for me. (One brought up the titles of the files I was looking for, but when I recovered them, all I got was a bunch of random numbers and icons.)
Also, I tried the "previous versions" trick and that also failed to work.
Since I don't know very much about the ins and outs of file restoration, I would be very grateful for someone with more experience in this area to assist me, and possibly point me toward some programs that I could try out.
