Recover permanently deleted files

Yesterday I had one of the problems which almost every person with a computer will have at least once… but probably even more than that…..

I deleted a couple of files which should not have been deleted…. Ooooh yes – I even did the “Empty Recycle Bin” also know as “permanently deleting a file”….

So – a little panic – as I really did need those files and uh… ** shame on me ** I did not have a back up….!!

But I found a big life saver; RECUVA…!!

After installing that one; I made Recuva making a scan – I used the search option and VOILA…. – it found my files !!
I was able to put them back => preferably on another harddrive – otherwise more and more of the deleted files will be kind of “corrupted”….
And yes – I also did the test with putting the files back on the same harddrive – I did another scan; and more files where not able to be recovered.

Words from the Recuva website;

Accidentally deleted an important file? Lost something important when your computer crashed? No problem! Recuva recovers files deleted from your Windows computer, Recycle Bin, digital camera card, or MP3 player. And it’s free!

Download; Recuva

  1. You are right, a good and professional data recovery software does work to get back formatted data that you forgot to back up.A thing we should pay attention to is that not to overwrite the disk to be recovered by new content.

  2. Good software, Empty Recycle Bin is not “permanently deleting a file” it just breaks the link between the file.

  3. It is good to know that I can still recovered my files with this. Thanks!
