When a file is deleted on your computer, these contents are not immediately gone. Windows just mark the hard drive space for availability by changing one of the characters of your file table.

If you haven’t used your computer yet after the deletion, you may just set the flag back to on and get your file back. However, if you already used your computer after the deletion then the chances of getting that file back is quite slim.

What you can do is try some third party software programs to get those files back. Some of these third party programs are:

If none of the above software programs worked to get your deleted files back, then you will have to bring your hard drive to a local professional file recovery company for assistance.

Obviously you can recover any kind of deleted documents like ms word, PowerPoint or excel. Just follow the instruction I tell you below.

At first you can check up your recycle bin, if you can’t found your desired deleted document there, then you can use Data Recovery Wizard. This absolutely can help you to recover your deleted or lost data. If it can’t help you, there also have some other idea.

You can follow this step that might be work. Open the recycle bin. On the view menu click details. Click arrange icon and click by date. In that case you have to remind about the probable date you lost the document. When you find your desired document, then click on it and click then restore.

Some times in your pc can automatically create a backup files when you create a original (see in ms word- Tools > Options > Save tab) .

You can do it by just Open the folder where you last saved the deleted or lost file. Then search for the file at WBK (Word back up) extension.
