    Was wondering why a bunch of my work dissapeared quite a while ago. Theres a lot of things I looked for for different uni assignments but couldn't find them.

    Was looking through the recycle bin and found it all in there along with loads of other stuff.

    Crazy ***** LOL. What is wrong with some people seriously. Not seen her in half a year and I still find out crazy **** that she's done.

    Just do regular back ups and put a password on your user profile. If she does do it again and deletes it from the recycling bin. I think but someone might have to correct me here, If it's deleted from the recycling bin, it's could still be on the harddrive because the OS just removes the pointer in memory of where it is stored. So to the end user it appears deleted, but it's still on the harddrive, just no pointer pointing it out. I think this only works if you have spare capacity as well, because if not, it will just write over the bits without pointers because the OS thinks their is nothing of worthness of keeping there. So you can get one of those computer forensic people to recover the file possible if it's really needy because I think you can just set up a new pointer to it and it will magically re appear on the computer.

    Could be wrong with all that though. Computers might of changed since the last I looked in to them in detail.

    Seems a strange thing to do. Unless it's a joke, which not a very funny one.

    She won't do it again because we broke up last summer. I didn't lose anything that important to me.

    Nah she lied to me about everything from the first day I met her and I didn't expect someone to be so evil ngl. She made me happy when i was depressed. I just ignored red flags because I was lonely lol.

    Because I like to live life on the edge :laugh:

    She actually broke my £600 PC monitor (160 fps #PCmasterrace) by throwing my phone at it but I made her buy a new one :rofl:

    edit: She broke my smart phone by stepping on it when she was drunk as well but I didn't make her pay for it because it was an accident lol. Thats why I use a brick now lmao.
