We try to upload one screencast per day here on our channels, created by people just like you! If you’re interested in submitting a screencast for possible use on our channel, see the instructions in the link at the beginning of this description. Today’s screencast was submitted by Nina.

In checking out her YouTube channel, I have to give her props: Nina doesn’t claim to be an expert. She just enjoys sharing what she learns with others. That, my friends, is awesome in my opinion. It isn’t often these days that we see someone actually admit that they aren’t the “best” or the “smartest”. Nina’s screencast is factually correct… and entertaining. GREAT work, Nina! Now, without further ado… let’s learn how to restore files that we may have accidentally deleted from the Recycle Bin in Windows!

The first thing you need to do is to download the free Restoration program from SnapFiles. Unzip the file anywhere that you choose to do. Also, in Vista, right-click the application and choose “Run as Administrator” prior to use.

Once you open the application, you’ll see the different drives available. Choose the drive to search. In the next box below that (on the right of the screen), type in part or all of the file name you are looking for. There are check-box options to search files even if they have no size to them, and to include clusters used by other files. Once you have these things done, click on the big “Search Deleted Files” button.

Once it’s done searching, you’ll get a list of the files that were found. Choose the correct file, and highlight it with a single click. Finally, click on the “Restore by Copy” button, and you’re finished!

Thanks again Nina! Great work!
