·'Delete File(s) to Recycle Bin': Deletes the source file using standard Windows delete function. Windows doesn't actually physically erase the data. It just marks the corresponding disk blocks as deleted, allowing the space to be reused later. If these disk blocks are read before they are overwritten, then the data can be recovered.
