Need suggestions for recovery of erased files from PC hard drive

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Due to my business partner mistake files erased from PC hard drive. I need those files, but have no idea how to recover without any loss. Friends i want your help to restore my files from Windows computer system hard drive.
Please give me your advice for recovery of lost files...

Did you simply delete them from the recycle bin as well, not formatted the drive?

It's important to unplug the drive out immediately so that it won't get over written.

Try a cloning software and use a program like Recuva to recover the files.

Again, if the files are overwritten by the system, it's nearly impossible to recover them.

    I second ryansoh3's suggestion to use Recuva (although his suggestion to clone should be unnecessary because this isn't a failing HDD).

  If the data hasn't been overwritten (the files were just deleted/emptied from recycle bin, or the drive was quick formatted), Recuva should be able to recover just about everything. thumb.gif  However, if the files were shredded/wiped, they are gone forever. redface.gif

    When you start Recuva, bypass the wizard.  Click [Options], go to the "Actions" tab, and enable "Deep Scan", "Scan for non-deleted files" and "Restore folder structure."  Then click [OK], select the desired disk in the dropdown on the upper-left and click "Scan."  When it is done scanning, select the files that you want to recover (you can select all of them), and then recover them to a different disk (important).
