When a file or a folder is deleted or lost from Windows PC, the first thing we usually do is checking for the file in Windows Recycle Bin. If the file we are searching for, is present in the Recycle Bin folder, then we restore it easily in few seconds. But, the problem occurs when the deleted file is not found in the Recycle Bin folder. What to do in a situation like this? Continue reading to know about the best data recovery software for PC, and procedure to recover the files using the software.
Many data recovery tools are available in these days to recover lost as well as deleted data. But, choosing the best one is somewhat headache to anyone. I suggest you to use Remo Recover software to recover all your data from Windows PC, as I used the same and successfully recovered my deleted files a few weeks ago. Here is the step-by-step procedure to get back your files from Windows PC.
Step 1: Stop using the hard drive of your computer, once you notice that the files are missing from the drive. This is because, if you overwrite with new files on the deleted files memory space, then the chance of recovering those files gets reduced.
Step 2: Straightaway download and install the free trial version of Remo Recover software on your Windows PC.
Step 3: Now, launch the downloaded and installed Remo Recover tool by double-clicking its icon. From the main screen, select “Recover Drives” option.
Step 4: In the next window, select either “Partition Recovery” or “Formatted/Reformatted Recovery” option.
Step 5: Now, the software displays the list of logical drives that are present on your PC. Select the drive from where you have lost or deleted the files and click “Next” button to initiate the scanning process. (This software supports drives formatted with various file systems like NTFS, NTFS5, FAT16, FAT32, and exFAT)
Step 6: The program starts scanning the selected drive and once it finishes the process, it displays the list of recovered files. You can view the recovered files in either “File Type View” or “Data View”. You can view the recovered files using “Preview” button.
You can save the entire data recovery process using its built-in “Save Recovery Session” option so that you can resume the saved recovery process any time to save the recovered files. After previewing the recovered files, if you are satisfied, then activate the complete version of the software and save the recovered files using “Open Recovery Session” instead of rescanning the drive again.
Safety measures to avoid data loss:
- Install a good anti-virus program on your PC in order to secure your Windows PC from harmful virus infections, as virus infections can cause data loss.
- While performing unwanted files deletion, make sure that you have not selected any essential file before deleting.
- Keep one or more copies of your essential files and folders on some other storage device to avoid data loss problems.
- Before formatting a logical drive, make sure that you have selected a correct drive for a format. Before formatting the drive, backup the files stored on that logical drive.
