    When I use Defraggler, it always asks me if I want to clean out the recycle bin of the device I'm defragging.

    With this in mind, I accidentally deleted a folder with a bunch of games from my SD card. So how do I access the recycling bin to get them back?

    Flash memory do not have a recycling bin, and are "completely removed". To see what you can recover, you need to look up an undelete tool, like Undelete.

    The recycling bin is only for the hard drives on your current system. Technically there's a separate recycling bin for each drive, but that's been merged into one application in later versions of Windows which shows deleted files across all drives.
