Recovering lost files from emptied trash.

I threw a documents file in the trash, thinking I'd duplicated it, and then emptied the trash.

I've lost the whole thing.

Can anyone advise me how to go about recovering the lost file?

If you want to try data recovery apps for free then you have plenty of options available for Mac. Go for Stellar file repair http://www.stellarinfo.com/mac-osx-recov..., try disk drill for Mac http://www.cleverfiles.com and Softtote Mac recovery http://www.softtote.com . Trying more than 1 tool will help you evaluate & compare the recovery performances. Go for the one which gives back maximum recovery figures.

Get back to me for more info.

Even if you have emptied the trash then also you can recover your data. Remember permanent deletion of data takes place only when the data is overwritten by something else. So, you need not to worry just use a data recovery software you will be able to recover the data easily.
