How to recover deleted folders easily?

Summary

A folder usually stores many important files. If you accidentally delete a folder, all the files in it will be lost. Yet it is impossible to recover the folder by yourself and then you would get much annoyed. But you can recover the deleted folder with free data recovery software. So do not worry!

Why the deleted folder could be recovered?

When a folder has been deleted from the computer, the files in it seem to disappear. Actually, these files are not immediately destroyed. Windows simply marks the hard drive space as being available for use by changing one character in the file table so that the file entry won't be displayed in My Computer or a command line DIR command, etc. The data area remains intact. This is the major reason why the deleted folder could be recovered. If you manage to start to undelete files before Windows uses that part of the hard drive to write a new file, all you have to do is to set that flag back to "on" and then you will get the file. The sooner you try to recover the folders, the more successful your recovery will be.

In order to recover the deleted folders, you have to turn to the data recovery software. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition is the most efficient recovery freeware. It can recover the deleted Word, Excel, PowerPoint, photo, Email, database, and all document formats and folders in Windows, which have been emptied from the Windows Recycle Bin.

How to recover deleted folders with free data recovery software?

Step 1. Launch EaseUS data recovery software, select the disk from which you want to recover data and click "Scan" to search for all the lost and existing files on the disk.

Step 3. After scan, preview all the listed recoverable files (only Word documents, text, photos and emails are supported) and choose those you want. Finally, click "Recover" button to retrieve them back. Here, you'd better save all the recovered files on a different drive or device in case of data recovery failure.
