I accidentally deleted some files. Can I get them back?

Useful tips for a successful deleted file recovery

First please remember when data loss happens, you’d better stop using your computer. Every time you write new data to the hard drive, you lower the chance of a successful recovery. So use that computer as little as possible until the files are recovered.

Three possible ways to restore deleted files from hard drive

1. Recover deleted files from Windows recycle bin

If you just move your data to the Recycle Bin and haven’t emptied it, just go there and select them. Tight-click them and choose Restore. Please check your recycle bin carefully before you decide to empty it.

2. Recover files from your backups

If you have a good habit and back up your hard drive regularly, all you need is to use the backup program and restore lost files from backups. I am sure this is also an easy way for you to do data recovery.

And if you don’t back up, maybe it’s time to get into the habit. Choose a reliable backup program or using cloud drive. I believe these could help you if data loss happens again.
