When a file is deleted from your computer it is not really deleted. it still exists and it’s possible to recover even if you empty the trash. In this video I demonstrate deleting files and recovering them using Testdisk (Photorec) in Ubuntu. – This will work as long as the space where those files are was not overwritten – Comments and suggestions are always welcomed.

    I used this tool a few days ago to recover some files form a phone, it works great, the only issue I had is when saving the recovery files puts in the home folder with restrictions when trying to delete them from the pc, I had to login as root.
