Why Can You Restore Files

When a file is deleted from your computer, its contents aren't 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. So, it is possible to restore the files with a fast and efficient data recovery before space is overwritten by new contents.

The sooner you try to restore files, the more successful you'll be. If your hard drive is pretty full, the odds are much greater than Windows will grab your precious unallocated space for its next write. Or, if you defrag the hard drive, you run the risk of unused parts of the drive being overwritten and lose your chance to restore files.

So the first rule is: STOP USING THAT COMPUTER IMMEDIATELY! Add the hard drive to another computer as the second internal hard drive. Then boot another computer to install EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
