Accidentally deleted essential files and want to restore those files back?

Both individuals and organizations are acutely aware of the risk of losing sensitive information by simple deletion. Although the threat of hardware failure is very real, in most situations, mistakes in modifying or deleting wrong files are much more common. Even in the most secure environments, it is possible that some harmful viruses could delete your essential files. Deleted data can be an issue in any situation i.e. while dealing with your computers, memory cards, digital cameras, USB drives and iPods. A file may be deleted by purpose and you later realized the need of that file or you may delete the files by mistake. In some case, you may lose an entire data from your hard drive partition by simply formatting it causing everything on a partition to appear unrecoverable. Here are some common situations in which your files may get deleted.

Emptying Recycle Bin/Trash by mistake: You might have moved some unnecessary files to Recycle Bin/Trash to restore them later. After some days, you forget that some essential files are residing in your Recycle Bin. Without knowing, you accidentally emptied the Recycle Bin. After few days, you come to know that you had some essential files in Recycle Bin!!! Now what?? After emptying the Recycle Bin or Trash using “Empty Recycle Bin” or “Empty Trash” option respectively, all your files and folders along with those essential files get deleted from it resulting in a loss of files. In Windows, if you save files in Recycle Bin for a long period of time then also you may lose those files. This is mainly because, Recycle Bin occupies 10% of hard disk storage capacity. If it gets full then the Recycle Bin starts deleting the files that are moved to it long back. Therefore, sometimes you cannot be able to find the deleted files in Recycle Bin. In order to recover files deleted from Recycle Bin, you need to use data recovery software which does this in few minutes.

Accidental deletion of files by using Shift+Delete keys or Command Prompt: You might accidentally delete files by using Shift+Del keys or Windows Command Prompt. And, when you realize that the files that you have deleted are very important, you start searching of those files in Recycle Bin. But, you cannot find the files in it!!! Why??? The file that you delete using Shift+Del keys or using command prompt does not move to Recycle Bin. Instead, it bypasses the Recycle Bin resulting in a loss of files.

Deletion of files from removable storage devices: Similarly, when you delete any files from removable storage devices like memory cards, USB drives or external drives, they bypass the Recycle Bin. Therefore, you cannot restore any files deleted from external storage devices by using Recycle Bin. It’s a bad idea to rely on Recycle Bin to restore files from careless delete operations.

Like on hard drives, when you delete any Outlook items using Shift+Del keys, they also bypass the “Deleted Items” folder resulting in data loss.

One of the biggest myths of computer use is that “Deleting” a file really gets rid of it. However, this is not necessarily the case. Most people assume that when you empty the Trash or Recycle Bin, your files are gone forever. The truth is that the files that have been deleted are still sitting exactly where it was before you deleted it. What actually happens is that the OS forgets that the files are still exist and makes an entry in the disk directory that the space occupied by that file is now available to store new files. But, until other data or file is stored at that location, the original files are still there. Therefore, if you save any files over that storage area then the files, which still exist in that location get overwritten by new files resulting in permanent loss of files.
