    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 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:

    Best Regards,
