You may have experiences in losing precious photos, documents, videos etc. from your computer. But you may not have experience in your lost computer file recovery. Well, this article can tell you how to troubleshoot the lost data problem. Before we discuss solutions to computer file recovery, please see the below chart on “Data Loss Statistics”.As we can see from the chart, data loss happens in many ways. Computer hardware like HD getting crashed or malfunction is one of the most common causes. Sometimes, human errors like deleting or formatting files by accident cannot be ignored either. Anyway, no matter how you lost your data, the fact is that you need to believe you can find them again. Therefore, in the following several methods for computer file recovery will be introduced.
Method1: Find your lost PC data through your data back-ups.
Some of the computer users have a good habit of backing-up computer files regularly. So when they deleted or formatted some files, they wouldn’t panic because they could be once regained very soon.
Method2: Perform computer file recovery from the Recycle Bin.
Sometimes the files we deleted could be got back from the recycle bin. So, why not take a look at the Recycle Bin. If you can find your lost files there, then just click “Restore this item”.
The above 2 methods only come into handy when we lost data in a very ideal way. For if we deleted files from the Recycle Bin or by pressing keys “Shift+Delete”, then Method2 would seem so weak and useless. Likewise, Method1 also doesn’t suit for people who didn’t do any backups.
