Question:
What ACTUALLY happens when you delete a file from your computer?
Answer:
When a file is created in the hard drive, a new record for it is added to the Master File Table, which is basically a portion of the hard drive containing a database for various attributes about files: name, creation date, access permissions, size, etc.
When a file deletion request is processed, the operating system removes all the metadata for it from the Master File Table, marking the hard drive’s physical storage blocks— called clusters— that are being removed as unused, allowing more files to be written on them later on.
In simpler terms, even if you choose to permanently delete a file, the deleted data is transferred to a memory cache for possible retrieval if required. You can think of it as your computer putting your deleted data’s space up for sale. Once the cache is full, the old data is overwritten by more recently deleted data, so deleted files can only be retrieved within a certain time frame before they’re overwritten.
