Get Back Files and Folders from Recycle Bin

Recycle Bin“Hi everyone, I want to share my problem with you here. I have deleted few of my important files and folders from Recycle Bin. Later I checked for those files and folders on Recycle Bin as I wanted to restore them to the original location on computer hard drive. But, instead of clicking on ‘Restore’ option, I mistakenly clicked on ‘Empty Recycle Bin’ option. Please suggest a way to get back my files and folders from Recycle Bin. Thanks in advance...”
