Free Download Software to Recover Deleted Folders Windows 10
“My computer is running Windows 10 OS. Last night I accidentally deleted a large folder, probably 2-3Gb in size. It contains thousands of files. I tried some software, but they can only recover single files, or can’t keep the original structure. Is there any software that is compatible with Windows 10 and can also recover all the files within a certain folder while keeping the original file structure?”
When a folder has been deleted from the computer, the files in it seem to disappear. Actually, these files are not immediately destroyed. This has to do with how file system handles files. Files are a series of zeros and ones resides on a platter. They each have been assigned a pointer so that the system knows where to find them. When we delete a file, it is the pointer that has been deleted. The file itself, in its raw form, is still there, only now the system can overwrite it when needed. If “delete” means “erase completely”, then every time you delete something, the system has to overwrite it with zeros or ones. This is safe but awfully inefficient. This is the same with deleting files, formatting partitions or any other kind of data loss.
So if you wish to recover lost folder, you’ll need an algorithm to access the inaccessible, hopefully before it get over-written. Luckily there are all kinds of software nowadays and you may choose one to perform the recovery. In order to recover the deleted folders and keep the file structure, you have to turn to the professional data recovery software.
