Hey Guys,

I got a big problem with my Vista machine. I am trying to do a clean up on my computer. Unfortunately, I have used a shift + delete function and I have deleted one of the hidden files.

As of the moment, my computer is running smoothly, but I am worried that in the long run, I might get issue because of it. How do I deal with this? Can I get it back?

Thanks.

Hi Brad,

There is no problem if you deleted a hidden file, it is not compulsory that the file you deleted was a system file or might cause problems in the near future.  If it so happens that you see errors or other windows problems it is advisable to re install or recovery windows.

If the file you deleted was an important file for you and you want it back, there is a way to do it.  Use a file recovery software, Google it and you will get hundreds of such software.

Use it to get your file back.
