How Can I Recover Recently Deleted Files

Hey, I was working on my final essay, but my PC is running too slow, so I cleared some cache and unnecessary files and thought it might help. But I accidentally deleted the needed Word file and emptied the Trash bin. Can I recover recently deleted files?

You may take it as granted that your files are permanently gone once you have emptied the Trash Bin, but all your deletion is earmark the space the file takes up on the hard drive as vacant. So, it is possible to recover even permanently deleted files only if the data is not overwritten. To do so, you can refer to EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for help.

You can download this data recovery software and follow the instructions here to get your lost files back:

Step 1. Choose the file location where your deleted files are originally stored. Click the "Scan" button to start scanning.

Step 2. After scanning, you can choose the "Deleted Files" and "Other Lost Files" folder from the left panel. You can apply the "Filter" feature or click "Search files or folders" to locate your deleted files.

Step 3. Now, you can click the "Recover" button to recover your recently deleted files and save them in a secure location - you’d better store them in a different place from the original one.

You can also recover your deleted file with Ctrl + Z:

  • Right-click the folder where you originally saved your lost files.
  • Click "Undo Delete" to return the file to its original place.
  • You may also hold "Ctrl + Z" to recover the deleted files.

Though simple and quick, this way may fail if you permanently delete your files. That is why we highly recommend you use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for help, which can recover deleted files without any backup.
