You have probably been there before; accidentally deleting an important file or a sentimental photo can get traumatic when you realize that within just seconds all the important data is gone forever. Well, maybe not forever! The files that you delete do not get deleted immediately, instead, they still exist in some part of the phone for quite a while until they are overwritten by some other data.
