Summary

How to recover deleted files? In this blog post, we will introduce a practical way to get back your lost data easily and effortlessly. Don't hesitate to apply the method to retrieve your important files.

When a file is deleted from your computer, its content isn'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. If you start an undelete process before Windows uses that part of the hard drive to write a new file, all you have to do is set that flag back to "on" and you get the file.
