Hey. A problem that I have as of now. I accidentally deleted an excel spreadsheet yesterday but still have not seen it pop up in my recycled bin. Nearly all the stuff that I delete intentionally comes to the recycled bin but this one has got out of the bag. Where could it possibly have been channeled; I need to find it and retrieve it as it holds important data for me? Any solutions guys? Thanks!

@Rick0302 I presume you tried sorting your Recycle Bin items by date, and it still didn't show up? Also, was the file initially stored on the same drive as your Recycle Bin? If not, see if the initial drive has a different Recycle Bin. Or this might be helpful:  https://www.easeus.com/file-recovery/retrieve-deleted-files-not-in-recycle-bin.html

Take your hard drive to a tech support company and see if they can retrieve it?
