My iMac running 10.6.8 has a .wav file that's in this location:

 

//localhost/Users/joedr/.Trash/03 Let Me Let Go.wav

 

I know this location is one that ClamX AV used a few times when it found something. I remember there was a warning a week or so ago about having found a Win Media folder infection I think, so maybe this .wav file is one that was infected. But I moved the infection to the trash then emptied it. Can, and should, this file be recovered or should I forget about it?

Well, if you do not have time machine backup then the most effective way to access the "hidden" files emptied from Trash is to rely on data recovery applications. It is  a safe, fast and easy application to perform trash recovery on your OS. Here is some steps of retrieving the file: Open the Trash folder and then select the items that you want to retrieve and hit the Delete button here is the red circle with line through it in the toolbar.  If you do not see that button, go to View -> Customize Toolbar and drag it from the palette of available buttons to wherever you want to park it. The item will disappear from the Trash and reappear in its original folder. Hope you will be satisty from my points.
