Where do deleted files go?

So-called deleted files are really not deleted.

The pointer to the file’s blocks on the hard drive is added to the free-space list in the file directory, and this space, ”may”, eventually, be re-used for new files. Note the “eventually” part: forensic tools can easily recover deleted files with little or no damage. And you thought they were really gone. Nope.
