As a technology user one might get a question “where does the file that I have deleted gone?” Here is the answer for your question
Obviously to the recycle bin for temporarily when you delete the file. But only for temporarily based on your operating system or platform that you are using. Which you can restore later if you think those are important or needed.
DOES THESE FILES IN RECYCLE BIN OCCUPY SPACE ?
Yes, they do. They occupy a specific location in your device memory. But they cannot be read directly unless you restore it. The files in the bin occupies the exact same space occupied by the deleted file. And you can delete them permanently by emptying the recycle bin.
WHERE DO PERMANENTLY DELETED FILES GO ?
We know that something nor be created nor be destroyed. So even if we deleted permanently they should be placed somewhere else. To understand this, let us assume our harddrive as a galaxy containing stars,planets,stardust,black holes etc..,and we want to explore in it. But while exploring we try to explore the things other than the black hole since if we go inside there maybe no traces of us.
Similarly in the harddrive there will be a place is created as an “EMPTY”. So the deleted file will be turned to empty when it is deleted permanently. So the file cannot be readable.
The traces of the deleted file will remain empty until a new file is replaced over it. The complete erase of the file without any traces will happen only after the empty slot is replaced with a new one for more than 35 times.
