    Can forensics technicians really recover info from PCs if you emptied your recycle bin, cleared cache & cookies and run a program that cleans out junk files?

    WVBIG, yes, because every file that you use remains on the hard drive unless if the computer is reformatted. Deleting and clearing don't remove information from computers, these just hide files from the sights of hard drives. That fools a computer in to thinking that there is more room which can increase speed or at least avoid a sluggish machine. Authorities have data recovery programs for the reason that you mention.
