Well, it is because your deleted files are not gone anywhere. They are inside your hard drive at their location, but without their index entries. The entries of the stored files in the index file tell the exact location and other information to the Operating System (OS) for extracting this file. The absence of the index entry of files makes them inaccessible by the OS and hence it marks the space occupied by them as ready to be reused. Moreover, you become completely unable to find these files on your computer.
