What happens when you delete any file or folder(s)?

When you delete your files or folders from hard drive or any other similar storage device, files will not be deleted immediately. Only space occupied by those files gets free and open for storing further files or folders. Storing any more file on the same location will result in overwriting deleted files and hence, making it permanently non recoverable.

Ways to Recover Deleted Files from Windows

1.) Check your Recycle Bin Folder

Check your recycle bin for deleted files and see if the files exist. You find your trash box empty, don’t panic and move to another solution.

2.) Search files on another location

It may possible that you’ve accidentally moved your files to another location but you don’t remember yet. You can search for your files to check whether they’ve existed somewhere else on the drive using search interface of Windows explorer interface.

3.) Use backup & restore

If the files were still missing, go to control penal and open “Backup and restore” option to restore files from the backup. If you don’t have backup and using Windows 8 then there is one more way left to recover your deleted files.

4.) Use File History
