When you delete files from your PC using Windows Recycle Bin, they don't really go away entirely. Instead, Windows just marks the files as erased and hides them from view until you eventually fill that drive space with something else. If you want to make sure your data is gone for good, use Eraser, a free and open-source file deletion utility that uses DoD-grade algorithms to repeatedly overwrite your deleted data until it's practically unrecoverable.
