How to Recover Deleted Folders Not Present in Recycle Bin

My computer was just upgraded. When I got it back, Windows 8 was installed, but there were numerous issues. One of the issues was that I couldn't access my files from the old HDD. Even still, the situation was not remedied. The folder icons that I had previously modified were no longer visible. Deleting the thumbnail cache did not help either. I considered moving all the folders on my drive to the recycle bin and restoring them.

When you delete a file or folder from your computer or HDD, it does not simply vanish. Even if you quickly empty the Recycle Bin or delete your files with the right-click menu, all your deletion does is indicate the space on your hard drive that the file occupies as vacant. As a result, if you know how, you can recover permanently deleted files.

If you activate File History before deleting your data, you could utilize it to recover the deleted files on your computer. This method should work even if you removed your files using the Shift + Delete method, which permanently deletes your files. If you did not enable this method before losing the files, do not attempt to utilize it.

Recovering deleted files not present in Recycle Bin with EaseUS Data Recovery software is the most effective way for you. When you remove files, your operating system does not wipe the erased data. In actuality, the freed space is designated as available and ready to be used to store data. As long as the space is not overwritten, there is a significant chance that you will be able to recover your lost data, even if they are not in the recycle bin, by using EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

This advanced data recovery software allows you to recover lost data from empty recycle bins, HDDs, SSD, and other storage devices. Although various options in this article may be useful, using the EaseUS data recovery program is the safest and most successful. The software can discover and recover files from damaged HDDs that the operating system does not recognize and refuses to mount.

  • Use a USB hard drive adapter or a USB cable to connect the unmounted hard disk to the computer.
  • Launch EaseUS data recovery software and run a comprehensive scan of the failing drive to retrieve any data.
  • Save the recovered data on removable media or an additional storage device.
