Many people who's ever used a computer has experienced the sufferings of losing important files caused by different reasons. And fortunately at most times what's lost can be found and retrieved. In this page you can find the simple way to recover lost files.

Restore deleted files from Recycle Bin

First when you find you lost your important file, you can double-click on the Recycle Bin in Windows to see if the file is there. If you find the file, drag it to the desktop. Or click on the file and click "Restore" button in the drop-down menu to return the file to its original location. Otherwise, you can choose to use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, a powerful online file recovery utility to fins and recover lost files.

If your hard disk crashed, you can recover the files through steps as below:

1. Try a commercial disk-repair utility, although success with these is somewhat limited if you didn't install the software before you experienced the crash.

2. If a disk appears to be irreparable and if the data is valuable enough, you can send the entire disk to a specialized drive recovery service that will disassemble it and retrieve as much data as possible. Expect to pay at least a couple hundred dollars, though (payable even when they don't recover anything). Is backing up regularly starting to sound like a good idea?

Eventually, all hard drives may crash. If you can't back up your entire drive, at least back up the data that you wouldn't want to lose forever.

Do some preventive measures. First, you have to make imaging of your bad hard disk onto a good one. This is your only way to keep your hard disk's status on condition. If, somehow, you fail your attempts to recover your disk, you still have a backup. So you would have chances to retry the recovering another way.
