Recovering deleted documents refers to the process of retrieving data that has been accidentally or intentionally deleted from a computer or storage device. When documents are deleted, they are usually moved to the Trash or Trash folder in the operating system, from where they can be easily restored. However, if the documents are permanently deleted or do not end up in the Recycle Bin or Trash, they can potentially be recovered in a variety of ways until they are overwritten with new data.
When documents are deleted on Windows or macOS, they are usually moved to the Trash or Trash, respectively. From there, they can be restored to their original position.
