Can you restore it from the recycle bin?

Trying programs isn't the same as restoring from the recycle bin.  I'm assuming that the file in question was on the hard-drive and not from a removable drive.

 

To read how to restore a file from the recycle bin, please read this:

 

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/recover-files-recycle-bin#1TC=windows-7

 

and this article: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hide-recycle-bin#1TC=windows-7 will show you how to hide or show the recycle bin.  I always have mine visible.

Deleting a file that large would make Windows to prompt you to delete the file directly instead if storing it to the Recycle Bin. So I think looking your file from Windows recycle bin is not an option. You might get lucky with a data recovery application but I think retrieving a file that huge is near to impossible with an average data recovery software.
