Hi Mr. Suy,
 
If you accidentally erase or remove your files and need it back for some reason. The files are possibly still on the computer. But remember that the longer the files has been erased or removed there is a less change in retrieving it back, so it is not always possible to retrieved the erase or deleted file.
 
Making sure and double check if the file is still in recycle bin. If the file is not on recycle bin or permanently deleted, search for a data recovery program. You can use a program what we called Advanced NTFS. Undelete you download it at
 
Use it and look for your lost file.
 
Good luck.

If you deleted a file and later you realized that it is important, there is still a chance of recovering it but the recovery window is very small. To have a big chance of recovering the file, you must not copy any file or files to the drive where the deleted file is stored.

For example, if the deleted file is located on drive D and you copy a file from drive C to D, there is a great chance that the file to be copied might overwrite the original sector where the deleted file resides. The best recovery tool I’ve used is Ontrack EasyRecovery 5.12A. It is a very old application but I keep on using it because of its effectiveness.

The latest version can be downloaded from Kroll Ontrack Data Recovery Software. Download and install it on your computer. Before you install the program, check again the original location of the deleted file. If it is on drive C, install Ontrack on a different drive like drive D if you have it. If the deleted file is on drive D, there’s no problem installing Ontrack because the installation default drive is C.

The only problem is that, if the deleted file is located on the system drive (C), installing Ontrack on drive D, for example, will still copy part of the installation files to C. So that’s the big risk.
