Can You Recover Deleted Files from SSD Drive (Mac & PC)

Of course, the deleted data or data from corrupt SSD can be recovered provided that the drive is not overwritten. When a file is simply deleted from SSD, then it moves to the Trash (Mac) and Recycle Bin (Windows). If you permanently delete files from SSD, can you perform SSD undelete? When you use a TRIM-enabled SSD (all modern SSDs support TRIM), deleted files are removed immediately and can't be recovered. Your operating system erases files immediately to speed up write performance. So, it's quite difficult to recover data once the SSD is overwritten. 

Then, how to recover deleted files from SSD? Are you having trouble with undeleting files on the SSD drive on your computer? Here, you'll find two effective methods to recover and undelete SSD deleted files with ease.

Recover deleted files on SSD.

Note: Stop using SSD drive immediately once you lose data or delete files on it. Then you need to find reliable solutions to recover deleted files from SSD.

Method 1. Recover Deleted Files SSD from Recycle Bin

If you accidentally delete SSD files and haven't clean up the Recycle Bin, you can directly recover and undelete lost SSD files from Recycle Bin.

Step 1. Open Recycle Bin and find deleted SSD files.

Step 2. Select and right-click deleted files, click "Restore".

Step 3. Find recovered SSD files at the original location.

If you have permanently deleted the files on SSD by Shit+Delete or emptied the Recycle Bin, then you can't restore the deleted files in this way. In this case, you need to resort to professional data recovery for help, like EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard in Method 2.

Method 2. How to Recover Deleted Files from SSD with File Recovery Software

EaseUS hard drive recovery software enables you to easily recover lost files from SSD due to accidental deletion, SSD formatting/damage, partition loss, virus attack, RAW partition. You can even restore files from dead or failed SSD drive when it fails to respond or work on your PC. Except for HDD and SSD, this file recovery tool is also good at recovering files from external hard drive, USB flash drive, pen drive, micro card, SD card, CF card, and more.

Disable SSD Trim Before Undeleting SSD 

If you have opened the "Trim" function for the SSD, the possibility to recover lost files from SSD might be minor. Therefore, to recover deleted files from SSD, remember to disable Trim on SSD card in advance if you've turned it on.
  • Click the search box, type CMD. Right-click the Command Prompt, and choose Run as administrator. 
  • Type fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 1 and hit Enter.
  • After the recovery, you need to type fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0 to enable TRIM.

Now, you can use EaseUS data recovery software to undelete SSD files with the following three simple steps.

Step 1. Scan the SSD

On EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, select the drive marked as SSD where you lost data, and click the "Scan" button.

Step 2. View the results

When the scanning finishes, find lost SSD data by using the "Filter" and "Search" options.

Step 3. Recover SSD files

Select desired data and click the "Recover" button to get back lost SSD files.

If your lost files are less than 2GB, you can also use the EaseUS free data recovery software for help. It works the same as the pro version with the same process. If you are a Mac user, you can download a Mac version to try.
