How does Isdeleted and recycling bin work?

I am trying to figure out a way to track what has been deleted. I am wondering how the isDeleted flag works once the recycling bin has been manually emptied or if the recycling bin hits its limit and the oldest records begin to be "permanently"  be deleted.  Are the records that have been Permanently deleted still accessable through the a data table? We are using a 3rd party data integration tool and we want to use the isDeleted flag to track what records have been deleted so we want to know if a record is permanently deleted if that record remains in the data table with the isDeleted flag set to true or if it is removed from the data table and is no longer accessable through the data table or through the UI.


Does anyone have any insight on this?

using the getDeleted API call is the only reliable way to track record deletions.
