    So you don't believe us. This has nothing to do with pixi or palm or recycle bin.
    This is how an OS is using a filesystem. The directory-listing of files in a folder is a stored in a special "area" on the disk.
    This holds pointers to the real files. When you delete a file this "pointer" gets deleted. EDIT: Gets marked deleted.
    But the bits on the filesystem (the file) stays intact. It would take a lot of time to overwrite all this bits.
    In e.g. a MAC you can choose "secure erase" for files. Then all bits of the file gets overwritten and you can't recover them.
    You can get more info in wikipedia about e.g. FAT filesystem.

    EDIT: Didn't you read the last post in the mentioned thread? http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...ml#post2682611

    Yes unfortunately there is a chance. It depends on how much was written on the USB portion after deletion.

    You will connect the phone to the computer, put it in USB mode and tell the program to look at the phone for recoverable files.

    The users of any given item will always know more than those who just sell it. No sales person is going to be trained on a ton of different phones and OSls.

    If you're going to ask for advice here, you'll get good information and instead of doubting it, you should listen to it the first 10 times.

    bigtonyinva,

    In response to your PM on how files that are deleted can be recovered.....

    Here is the 'just a bit technical' answer*... When you delete a video or picture nothing is really deleted. The operating system (in this case WebOS) marks the space that the file (in this case your video) takes up as free space so that new data can be put there. Until something is written over that space, like a new video, a song, pictures or what ever, the file is still there and relatively easy to recover / un-delete. There are a number of free photo recovery tools that you can use.

    See my post above for a link to PhotoRec.


    *To the other techies, remember that this is a kitchen table explanation.
