Have you ever been troubled by losing important data? Do you know it is possible to recover deleted files from your hard drive? Read through this page and you will learn how.

It’s important to remember when data loss happens, you should stop using your computer. Every time you write new data to your harddrive, you lower the chance of a successful recovery.  So use that computer as little as possible until the files are recovered.

Here’s how to recover deleted files from the hard drive:

  1. Recover deleted files from the Recycle Bin

If you just moved your data to the Recycle Bin, those files are still there unless you’ve emptied the Recycle Bin. Simply go there and right click them. Then choose “Restore.” Be sure to check your Recycle Bin carefully before you decide to empty it. If you have already emptied it, you can also recover Recycle Bin by using EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free. We’ll talk more about that below.

  1. Recover files from your backups

If you regularly backup your hard drive, all you need to do is open the backup program and restore your lost files from there. This is the easiest method of data recovery.

If you don’t regularly backup your hard drive, now is a good time to start. It’s a great habit to have. Choose a reliable backup program or use a cloud drive (OPTIONAL: LIKE GOOGLE DRIVE OR ICLOUD). These programs will help you if you experience data loss again.

  1. Restore deleted files with data recovery software

What can you do if you have already emptied the Recycle Bin and you have no backups? In this case, you’ll need this data recovery software: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard . It’s a free recovery software and it’s easy to use. It can restore deleted filesas well as files lost from virus attacks, reformatting, system crashes, RAWhard drives, and more.

How to use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and select the file types you want to recover. Then click “Next.”

Step 2. Select the disk where you lost your data and click “Scan.” EaseUS will quickly scan the selected disk to find all the lost files of the type you selected in Step 1. If you lost your partition, select “Lost Disk Drives” and “Scan” to recover it.

Step 3. After the scan completes, you can preview all the listed recoverable files and select the those you want to recover. Then, click “Recover” to immediately get them back. Make sure to save all the recovered files to a different disk to avoid overwriting anything.
