How do you undelete items that were twice deleted.

1. From the folder or other directory.

2. and deleted from the recycling bin.

I have asked an unreliable source, but the info would seem practicle, the source from which my information was derived from said that once a file is deleted from the recycling bin it is scrambled into binary and when one wants to reform this file to undelete it he/she must reassemble this code....What is the real way to undeleting an item after it has been deleted from the recycling bin?

When a file gets deleted in windows, windows simply renames it usually by removing the first letter of the file name. For instance, the file delete.doc, might be changed to _elete.doc.

You could try PcInspector which is a program I've used with great luck in the past... and it's free!!

Ah, so it isn't that hard?

Edit: And also, if i don't know the name of the file, will that be a problem?

Once you launch PcInspector, you will be faced with a wizard type interface. Just follow the prompts.

No, you don't need to know the name as PcInspector will pull up all files you specified in the wizard. However, since the name has been truncated, you will have to search the list for a name "close" to the file you're looking for.
