Recycle Bin on External Drives
I deleted a number of files on a removable hard drive and now realized that
I would like them back. I was wondering whether there was a recycle bin in
removable drives and how I would undelete the files?

I am running Vista Ultimate RTM.

External drives didn't have a recycle bin. If the file system is
FAT/FAT32/NTFS you can try to use some free undelete utilities like PC File
Recorvery http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/welcome.htm. Sometimes it
helps - if the files wasn't overwritten.

Hope that helps.

Re: Recycle Bin on External Drives
Well actually I have recovered files after doing a windows format and clean install using a program called Get Data Back. It has worked wonders for me and never failed me yet. I would highly recommend this program. hope you get this. peace
