Issue: Data File Recovery Tips
Please tell me that it’s possible to recover deleted files! I’ve accidentally agreed to delete the file that was very important and need to get it back ASAP if possible. Could you please help me to solve this problem?
Actually our team assume that deletion process should be based on more confirmations, while at the moment to delete a file the user needs to click the icon of the file/program/folder and ‘Enter’ or ‘Delete’ button afterward. This may easily be done when the user rushes to perform some task and accidentally click the composition of buttons that create a ‘Delete’ command.
In case we have just perfectly described the experience you are going through now and seek to recover data files that were accidentally deleted, then the most important thing is NOT to waste your time. Data recovery is a simple task if you react immediately after the needed file has been removed. We will try to explain shortly what has to be done in order to restore deleted files both manually and automatically.
How data files can be recovered manually
In case you have just clicked ‘Yes’ button and accidentally confirmed the deletion of a needed file, instead of falling to panic take needed actions to restore it.
- First of all, you should try to find the deleted files in alternate locations. First of all, you should check the Recycle Bin folder unless you have just emptied it. In case your recycle bin is full of unnecessary data, the search for a needed file would require lots of time; therefore, you should either sort data according to the deletion date, which will significantly reduce the amount of files or enter the file name that you have just deleted in a search box (make sure that you type it correctly). If you find a deleted data that you want to recover, then you should click on it and select ‘Restore’. The file will be returned to its previous location.
- In case the Recycle Bin on your computer has been emptied and the deleted file is certainly not there, then maybe you have its backup in USB external hard drive, CD, DVD or any cloud storage device, including Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, etc. It might be that you had the necessary data on cloud storage and deleted it from there as well. Nevertheless, it may be kept in the storage’s Recycle Bin, so don’t forget to check it.
If you have tried that but did not succeed in restoring the deleted data file, then the best that you can do is to employ a data recovery tool and recover it automatically.
