“Oh,no… I didn’t mean to delete the file†It happens to everyone in
our daily life. Stray mouse click “Delete†or just mistakenly finger

From Recycle Bin
First, don’t panic. Check out your Recycle Bin. When a file or folder

this item†on the menu bar. The file will be restored to its previous

the above trick will not work. Yet it also can be recoverable for file
and folder are still not really deleted, you just lose the entry in my
computer. The content still exists on the hard disk and the space can
be available by other files though. If the space isn’t occupied by
other files, you can get back files and folders.

From backup
Once lose file and folder, you had better not write new file. Try to

found immediately and recovered quickly. You can preview pictures and
audio before recovery. Nevertheless, the pretend is files and folders
were not overwritten, or else there is no way to get them back.
Note: You must never save the recovered files and folders to the same
disk where previous ones located. That is because the space where the
data you hope to recover taken might be get written.
