Recover Accidentally Deleted Data from Windows Hard Disk
People delete files to make room for new ones. It is also important to keep the hard drive free from unnecessary fragments in order to improve the efficiency of read/write ability. We all at some point accidentally deleted some useful files and it can be rather annoying when it happens. When you delete a file on a magnetic hard disk drive, its data isn’t immediately erased from the disk. Instead, the pointer that points to the data is removed. The data can then be overwritten. It may be possible to scan the hard drive for leftover data and restore deleted files that haven’t yet been overwritten.
Deleted files aren’t removed permanently until they got overwritten by new files. Why won’t the system just delete them right away? To permanently remove a file, it requires the file to be overwritten. That means each time you delete a file, the system will overwrite the file with random 0s and 1s. This is time-consuming and inefficient. The larger the deleted file, the longer it will take to overwrite. Just think about the painful waiting each time you copy a huge file. For users with specific security requirements, there are tools available to erase files permanently in case of unauthorized recovery.
If you deleted a file on a magnetic hard drive and you’re still using that computer, the safest thing to do is shut down the computer immediately. If you continue using the computer, it’s possible that a program on your computer could write to the disk and that data could overwrite the deleted file’s data on your hard drive. The key is to avoid writing to the drive entirely. Install a piece of secure data recovery software on another drive to scan the drive, and hopefully, you’ll find the deleted file. If you deleted the file recently and haven’t written to the drive much, you have fairly good odds of recovering it. If you deleted the file two weeks ago and have written to the drive quite a bit, it’s very unlikely that the file will be recoverable.
We highly recommend H Data Recovery Software as an ultimate solution to your data loss problems. It is simple and easy to use yet fully featured and powerful. Not only can it recover deleted files but also save your formatted USB disks, salvage emptied Recycle Bins or even recover lost partitions. Performing data recovery with H Data Recovery Software is very simple. Just proceed as follows:
Step 1. Free download hard disk recovery software and install it on another drive or partition. Launch H Data Recovery Software and select “Deleted Your files Accidentally” by clicking it.
Step 2. Select the partition where your files used to be before they get deleted. If you wish to recover files on Desktop or from Recycle Bin, choose partition (C:). Click Next to start the scan process. It only takes few seconds!
Step 3. When scanning is done, you will be able to see all the files that can be recovered. Check the files you wish to recover and click next to start the recovering process. If the scanning process failed to find your lost file, try our new feature “Universal Recovery”. It is a special module that scans deeper and quicker into the storage and locates all deleted files.
Step 4. Choose a path to store the recovered file. Remember: immediate action leads to greater chance of a successful recovery! Meanwhile, do not put new files into that partition in order to avoid deleted files being overwritten.
