Once you empty files from the Recycle Bin, those files are
usually permanently deleted from your computer.
You may wish to try a possible third-party solution: http://www.file-saver.com/undelete/menu.aspx
The most important thing you must know, regardless which of the file
recovery applications you decide to use, is that when a file is deleted,
windows marks that space on the disk as free to be used by another file. If
another file overwrites part of that space, that bit of the file is lost
forever and may become completely unreadable by the program used to open it.
The more time that passes from you deleting a file to the time you try to
recover it, the less chance there is of a full and successful recovery.
