In simple words whenever a file is deleted the operating system keeps that file within itself .Only the reference to the file is deleted. In that memory location the file still exist unless new files are added to that same memory location. For example in your one of the local volumes you have deleted all the files inside that volume. The files still points to some memory location. But if some new files are added to that volume they may overlap old file’s memory location. In that case recovery becomes unsuccessful. So make sure after deletion of some file you are not going to add any file in that volume. Otherwise chances of recovering  files are less.
