What happens when someone delete any file?
Each and every file has own and unique path by which it can be opened or accessed. When the file is deleted it never ever goes to the recycle bin, but still be there at the same space in the hard disk. The name and path of the file use to be erased. It gets stored in recycle bin. In the file INFO2, it gets new address and a new name, which is the hidden and index file in the recycle bin folder. Thus whenever we restore the file, it automatically gets its real address and name from recycle bin folder and goes to the same place where it was earlier.
When we empty the recycle bin without restoring the deleted file, instead of having the file in our hard disk, it loses the real address and name and that is the reason why such a file cannot be opened. After deleting the files from recycle bin also, you do not have any option to get it back instead of the resolution what I am going to tell you in trail.
