One is Resource Fork which is responsible for stored file manipulation and other one is Data Fork which holds the actual data which user kept in the stored file. Deleting a file just removes the Resource Fork and marks the space occupied by that file as free, but Data Fork remains intact until the deleted file is overwritten with new data. Mac file recovery software easily retrieves such raw data with the help of various file attributes. Using appropriate recovery software one can also restore deleted data from Windows 7.
