Why deleted files can be recovered?

When a file is deleted, the operating system removes the file name from the file table and also change the file exist flag from true to false. Actually, the deleted file data (store as 0 and 1), and file information (file type, file size, date of file) still on the disk until them ware over written with new data. However, the operating system can only access the files on file table and shows them to windows user, so the deleted file will not be shown any more. The professional data recovery software is able to scan every sector on the disk, find out the files which ware marked as deleted, and recover them as last.
