    alright. i never synced the phone and i deleted all the pictures and videos.

    not with itunes, or on the phone though. i have a pc and i deleted everything through the explorer window. i thought everything would have went to the recycle bin but they did not. is there anyway i can get the videos and pictures back?

    or where did the files go?

    You can't. The recycle bin holds files that were deleted from external hard drives and the native drive that has Windows installed. When you delete anything from a flash drive in an explorer window it gets permanently deleted, at least I believe so.

    This is why backups are important.

    nothing is ever permently deleted on your macbook, but on the phone, it is.

    Can you actually permanently delete files without destroying the hard drive?
    :confused:
    How does it permanently delete things on the iPhone.
