I have accidently deleted some really important files, and emptied the recycle bin. Is there any easy ways I can just get my files back? Thanks!

Windows Os is Microsoft's one of fail-safe device to avoid deletion of files or programs you didn't want to delete. Typically, when most files are "deleted," they're sent to the Recycle Bin and can be recovered easily. When you delete files from Recycle Bin (Means you emptied the Bin), they are supposedly deleted permanently.--But there are hopes for recovery in a few cases.

Deleting Files into Recycle Bin
When a file is deleted, it usually goes to the Recycle Bin. This does not actually delete the file but hides its directory information, which can be restored. Open Recycle Bin, locate the deleted file and click it by the right key of mouse in your hand. Click ’Restore’.

Deleting Files from Recycle Bin
When files are deleted from Recycle Bin, they are supposed to be erased permanently, but the files are still there! – Your system just indicates that the space the deleted file is located on the hard drive can be written over by new data now.

There is no function to retrieve files deleted from Recycle Bin in Windows platform, but some third-party data recovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery can recover files that deleted from Recycle Bin.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted.

Deleting Files with Shift + Delete Keys
When you press Shift key while deleting a file, this file won’t go to Recycle Bin and will need to be recovered with third-party data recovery program as well.

Hopes for Data Recovery
After deletion, if you save or install something on your computer, it’s highly possible that the file you want to retrieve is now written over and gone for good. Therefore, do as little as possible to your computer and run data recovery tool to recover your deleted files.

More Detail About Data Recovery Software:
Deleting won't make data erased permanently. Those deleted data are still stored in the hard drive. They're just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NTFS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover deleted files. The most effective way is to rely on some data recovery program.Data recovery software can recover data after deeply scanning your ahrd drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted.
