A quick Flea Market rescue - I think this Entry is quite useful because I once had to use data recovery software to salvage photos that had been eaten by my computer!

Incidentally, one thing I learnt from the keyboard shortcuts entry is the power of Ctrl-Z to undo what the last thing you've done is. So if you notice straight away that the last thing you did was delete a file, Ctrl-Z will bring it back. Try it - create a dummy file, save it on your desktop, delete it and press Ctrl-Z. It works, so that's my suggestion to include.

Thanks <BB< - excellent suggestion. I have used Ctrl+Z many times when my hand slipped and moved one folder into another in a filing list, so that is great that it also works for the recycling bin!
