    If you haven’t had too much disk updating since deleting, there is a good chance that your deleted file can be recovered.

    Download the latest version of the free Recuva program from here http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/ When downloading be aware of any ‘foistware’ that is offered.

    To attempt to recover every deleted file, select a drive in the drop-down menu and click Scan to list everything > tick Filename and click Recover to.

  • Hi,

    If you can't find a file on your computer or you accidently modified or deleted a file, you can restore it from a backup (if you're using Windows backup) or you can try to restore it from a previous version.

    Previous versions are copies of files and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point. Previous versions are sometimes referred to as shadow copies.

    For more information, please refer to the link:
