    Default Data Recovery

    Hi,

    What you are seeing are the remnants of the internet cache. Every time you (or a user on this computer) visits an internet page, the pictures on that page a downloaded and put into the temporary internet cache (it is designed to make browsing faster, so the pictures can be read of the hard drive and dont have to be downloaded each time).

    Windows is constantly deleting the oldest of the cached pictures, so they end up on your drive as deleted files for you to recover with Recover My Files.
