If this is the case, there is a way to un-delete with the right software.
There are many software choices, but most of them have license fees associated with them.
What deleting means at the system level is, you’ve erased the file descriptor.
That’s a fancy way of saying the computer now thinks the area the file was saved is empty.
If you deleted a file and it went to your trash bin, you can fix that by opening the trash folder, right clicking the item you want to bring back and clicking ‘Restore.’ Deleting means you’ve emptied the trash.
A shredded file is one where the space the file once occupied is written over with random data, or otherwise completely destroyed.
