How Do I Recover Files That I Have Deleted?

Question: How do I  Recover   Files  That I’ve Deleted?

As long as Windows allows  files  to be deleted, we’ll need to find ways to  recover  them. A time machine is probably not a viable solution to undo an accidental  file  deletion so we’re left with finding some way to  recover  the  file .

Believe it or not, it’s not hard to  recover  a  file  that you’ve deleted, even one from a media card or USB drive and even one from your hard drive after emptying the Recycle Bin.

Answer: The best way to  recover  a  file  is to use a free file recovery program.

We all delete  files  we wish we wouldn’t have and in most cases, the only way to get them back is to  recover  them using a  file  recovery program.

Many programs exist that  recover   files , several of which try to charge you for this “magic” service. Let me assure you, no wizard is necessary to  recover  a deleted  file . You can  recover  a  file , for free, all by yourself, with a freeware file recovery program.

I keep an updated list of programs that  recover   files  in my List of the Best Free File Recovery Programs. Any of these completely free programs will  recover  (or “undelete”) any kind of  file  you might have deleted.

Note: You do not need to have any of these programs installed before you delete the file, which is great news. You can install one of these programs, perform the scan of your system, and  recover  any  files  that haven’t been overwritten by other data.

Important: You can greatly increase the chance that a  file  recovery program can  recover  your  file  by minimizing your computer use as soon as you realize that you need to  recover  something. The more data your computer saves to your hard drive (or other storage device), the greater the possibility that the area of the drive that is still storing your file will be overwritten. If that happens, your file will be lost forever.

So if you’ve deleted a  file  and you’ve found this article in an attempt to find a way to  recover  it, check out that list of  file  recovery programs right now, choose one, download and install it, and have it scan your computer for all recoverable files. If you’re lucky, your  file  will be in good shape and able to be completely  recovered .

It seems to be an easy thing to do your file or data recovery on your own. But if you have created a Word or Excel password, it is not easy to  recover  Word password or  recover  Excel password. As it happens, the best way is to take an Word or Excel password recovery tool to solve the problem, like Office Password Unlocker, which supports to  recover  password for MS Word, Excel, PPT, Access with 3 types of attacks.
