When administrators delete a page, they can see the content. When we delete a file from our computer hard drive, it's gone. Some administrators restore deleted pages. Then this delete is not permanent? If an article is deleted three times, then administrators can see the combined edit history of all versions together?

Welcome back Mr. Parker. Yes, "deleting" is a bit of a misnomer. The pages aren't actually deleted like a file on your computer (without getting too technical). It would be more literal to say that the page is hidden, albeit it hidden from the vast majority of editors and readers. TimothyJosephWood 18:17, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
