Simple Steps to Recover Deleted Word Document

"I'm forever losing the 10-page essay I've been writing for three days.", said my best friend Jane sullenly. She told me that the other day she found the computer running very slow, so she decided to delete some unimportant files to release disk space. However, when it was time to hand in the essay, all she found was nothing! Obviously, she had deleted the document accidentally. Awfully, she had emptied the Trash Bin already, thoroughly extinguishing the hope to recover deleted word document.
