Recover deleted files Windows 10
It has certainly happened to everyone at some point. You accidentally delete data that you actually still need. Quickly clicked or deleted with a bunch of other files, so important data is lost. With this article we would like to show you how to recover deleted files in Windows 10. The program Recuva offers a suitable solution and works for hard drives and USB sticks. However, your timing is important. If you notice that data has been deleted, it is important to react quickly. The longer you wait, the less likely it is that you will be able to recover the data.
Why is it getting harder and harder to recover deleted data?
This is due to the way the data is stored. Data is not stored neatly and tidily on a hard disk. They are literally thrown on it so that the system can work faster when saving. If data is deleted now, there is a greater risk that new data will overwrite this point in the future instead of first cleanly using all other locations. So the longer you wait, the more data has the possibility to overwrite the old data completely. Therefore it is better to act early!
- First download Recuva and install the software
- Open Recuva and select the file type first. The more precise your selection is, the faster the search and the better the result
- In the next step you can specify the file location. If you know this, it can help the software a lot. In most cases it is “Recycle Bin”, as the recycle bin
- Start the search
- Search for your file in the results list. If the state is good, you can put a check mark in front of the file and click on “Recover” in the bottom right corner
There is no guarantee to recover deleted data, but with Recuva the chances are not bad. We also managed to backup several months old data. This was certainly due to the fact that we did not save an excessive amount of new data in the meantime, but it also shows what possibilities exist. We wish you good luck!
