Right ok I was clearing through some old files and accidently deleted a really important document and some family photos as well. Now surely they would just go to the recycle bin and I could restore them, but theres nothing there at all. Whats happened?

Have I lose these files or is there any other silly place they have ended up. I have searched but to no avail.

Because they were too large for the recycle bin? Nothing is deleted for ever (only remains there to be written over). You could get a professional to recover it or use specilaist software. Make back ups next time!

Take it to a PC shop and tell them what you want to find. Don't try and do it yourself cause u may cause more damage.

It's quite hard to mess up with something like Recuva.

"Oh no! I restored the wrong file! I've restored my shopping list from a fortnight ago!"

That's about the worst that can happen.
