    I had accidentally permanently deleted a file. Is there any log that lists the files that were deleted and when they were deleted? Also is there any way to find other attributes of the file like its creation date?

  3. delete large file permanently.

    There's no way to recover your files if you've deleted those permanently. We suggest you to always have a backup storage to save your important files just in case this scenario will happen in the future.

    How to Disable Permanently Delete Files

    Hi Andrew,

    Whenever you delete a file or folder, Windows asks for your confirmation before moving it to Recycle Bin but Microsoft has removed this confirmation on some versions (Windows 8). Since you are using Windows 10, you can choose whether to have the file deleted
    permanently or not.

    If you also want to re-enable delete confirmation dialog, kindly the follow the steps below:

    • Right click on the Recycle Bin.
    • Click on Properties, untick the option Don't move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.
    • Click Ok to save the changes.

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.
