You may wonder now is there an option to restore those deleted files, and wonder if it is truthfully possible to revive your valuable files. The answer is “It is possible!”
When I heard of the word Data Recovery when I am a bachelor and a newbie in computer technology, I came to think what could be the expert computer technologists was doing in recovering data. I wonder if they dissemble the hard drive or a memory card just to restore what files is needed to get undeleted. Whether if they used special equipment or a high end super computer just to read all the data on the disk, and I think that it could be expensive.
Recovering loss data or deleted files is not possible, that is my word, when somebody asked me regarding data recovery. Deleted files from the recycle bin cannot bring back, only files that on the recycle bin that has not been deleted could only be restored. That is my point of view in data recovery. Until I discover that data recovery could be possible, that surprises me greatly.
I remember the news in our local televisions regarding data recovery. Data recovery is being used by other computer technician to extracts deleted files from personal computer or laptop hard drives of their clients. Well known for this is the sex scandal video of a celebrity here in the Philippines. The sex scandal video was become viral and shocked other audiences. The celebrity told to the newscaster that he deleted the video from their laptop, and he sell the said laptop, and he was shocked and ashamed that their video was being restored and uploaded on the net. He never thought that it could be possible to undelete and restored the file he deletes.
I searched the net for data recovery software, so I can test and experience data recovery and restoration. I had downloaded one of more data recovery software on the net called Recuva, it is a free to download data recovery tool. I installed it to my computer and run it, and then I saw the files that i deleted a long time ago. The names of the file sometimes in alpha numeric combinations and not the actual filenames, also you will see the type of that file whether it is a document, video or an image. I selected one and then click restore, if the selected file is recoverable or not.
Here is the most important in data recovery, not every deleted file can be restore unless it does not overwritten by other files that are newly added to the disk. Meaning, if you deleted a file and added a new file on the disk, it is not 100 percent that your deleted file could be recover or restore. But if you recovering deleted file before a new file is being added on the disk, there is a 100 percent chance that you can recover the deleted file.
In a scenario that you accidentally deleted a file, whether you are using a digital camera, mobile device, personal computer, laptop, do not panic. There is a way to recover the file you deleted, just make sure that you would not add a new file onto the disk, just make the disk intact from adding a new item. All you have to do is download data recovery tool software and install it in your computer, then plug in your device, then run the tool and scan the deleted files from your device. Then the data recovery software will scan all the deleted files from your device and will show whether it is recoverable or not, select the file you want to recover and click restore. Sometimes the deleted files cannot be fully restored due to overwritten of new file, you could restore it but I cannot say that it would work again as good as new.
Now, I know that if you deleted a file from your USB stick, memory card, hard drive and other devices, the deleted file is not totally deleted at all. It would stay there until it is overwritten by a new file. So for other people who want to permanently delete their choice of file, deleted it is not enough, the best way to permanently deleted it is to overwrite it by a new file. Hope this article will help other people in restoring their deleted data; it is simple but powerful and helpful.
