Dear George Ppercy,

Perhaps you deleted your files permanently (Shift+delete). That's why your file is not stored in the Recycle Bin. You now have the option to use recovery software. Use it and try to recover your file. Download this software from this link:

 You can also get a manual from that site. Or you can go search on Google. You will find many recovery software’s there.

Wishing you the best of luck.
