“While file deletion is a common and necessary operation to get more free space for new data, there is a risk of losing important files permanently.”
At some point of time, you may happen to delete files using SHIFT and DELETE keys or empty the Recycle Bin folder immediately after removing the files irrelevant to you from computer. Then you came across a situation where you needed some of the deleted files. And yet, you can’t recover them from your Recycle Bin as the files are permanently deleted.
Having said that, it doesn’t literally mean that you can’t restore the files at all! At times when you permanently delete files, Windows never really removes a file rather it marks the hard disk space as being available for use by changing one character in the file table. That means that you can easily recover any permanently deleted file, provided you don’t overwrite the storage space with new data.
There are several ways to recover files. Here, we have covered one of them, which is really a great rescuer for recovering permanently deleted files on Windows PC.
Yes, we are talking about Remo File Recovery Software, and this post is all about recovering files with that tool. Scroll on and find the recovery steps…
“If you are looking for a method that doesn’t involve any recovery software, read to know how to recover deleted files without any software here.”
H2: How Do I Recover Permanently Deleted Files from My PC
If the deleted files are particularly critical, and you don’t have any backups, you have to consider a professional file recovery software – Remo File Recovery. This tool deals with everything from recovering shift-deleted files from emptied Recycle Bin file recovery.
What our software can do?
The program recovers all those files that have been deleted accidentally, intentionally, the files that are emptied from Recycle Bin, bypassed from Recycle Bin, and also shift-deleted files. It restores files deleted from MS Office like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. It also restores compressed files, text files, PDFs and many more. In addition, it scans through your hard drives, memory cards, and USB sticks to find files and folders you’ve deleted. Not only this, you will be able to get back files from NTFS and FAT formatted drives.
Supported Windows operating systems: Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012.
What our software can’t do?
Sometimes, Windows will overwrite the area where the file used to be, or sometimes the file is too corrupted to recover. Under such instances, it will be impossible for our software to get back deleted files.
Also, you can’t restore files that have been deleted completely or we can say securely. For instance, the files that are removed using software like CCleaner.
When it comes to recovering files from network drives, until and unless you remove and connect the drive physically to the computer where the software is installed, you can’t get back deleted data. Because, Remo File Recovery cannot access network drives!
Now, we will show you how to perform deleted file recovery step by step…
Step 1: Download & Launch Remo File Recovery Software
To recover permanently deleted files using Remo File Recovery, first of all you’ll have to download and install it on your Windows PC.
Just follow the simple on-screen instructions and your software installation will be done! And most importantly, make sure that you don’t install the program on partition/drive from where the files are deleted.
Finally, launch the tool and proceed with the file recovery process.
Step 2: Choose the appropriate recovery options
As soon as you launch the program, a window consisting of three basic recovery options will be displayed as shown below:
Since you’ll have to recover files, select “Recover Files” option. Using this option, you’ll be provided with the fastest recovery of files and the ability to select files using RAW signature search option.
In the next windows, you’ll get to see two options: Recover Deleted Files and Recover Lost Files.
Again your intention is to restore deleted files, so you are required to go with “Recover Deleted Files” option.
Recover Deleted Files option is helpful in all the file deletion cases, such as accidental deletion, shift-delete, emptied Recycle Bin, and many more. Whereas, the option Recover Lost Files will recover files that have been lost due to virus infections, improper usage of Cut-Paste operation, etc.
Step 3: Select the right storage drive to continue the process…
You are now required to choose the drive/partition from where the files are deleted. Once you select, the tool scans the entire hard drive and displays all the recoverable files. You can view the files either in Data View or File Type View.
Note: To see only deleted files, click on Show Deleted.
Step 4: Select the required file type and preview before recovering
Now, choose the folder containing your deleted files and preview them. You can also add the file extension if you don’t find the required files.
Additional Tip: As soon as you select the recoverable file or folder, a pop-up saying Save Recovery Session will be displayed. Just save that session and avoid rescanning of the hard drive again and again.
Step 5: Finally, save the restored files
Once the recovery is done, select the destination folder and save the recovered files. You can also compress the recovered files by marking into Compressed Recovered Data field and save your disk space.
That’s all! Isn’t it looks simple and easy?
Well, deleted files aren’t necessarily gone forever, but they’re not always easy to recover. So, a proper backup procedure will be important. Make a habit of taking regular backups of your important files.
