As computer users continue to adapt the personal computer to different areas of life; the level of sophistication employed by end users increases. Today it is not uncommon to have average users routinely manipulating partitions on their hard drive to re-distribute space, increase computing speed, and protect various programs or data. The downside of increased comfort with performing changes to the basic structure of the storage architecture is the risk of user errors. It’s bad enough to mistakenly delete a file, but it’s becoming increasingly common to hear of users deleting entire partitions in error. When this happens, it’s best to obtain a powerful data recovery suite like iMyFone D-Back Recovery to recover the lost partition.
Recovering Files Manually
Even though it’s unlikely you’ll find what you’re looking for; the first place you look should for your file is the recycle bin. Some disk maintenance applications will actually dump the contents of the partition into the recycle bin, so a quick look can sometimes locate the missing file.
When you’re not lucky enough to find the files in the recycle bin, it’s even less likely that you’ll be able to find them via Windows Search. Nonetheless, you should at least attempt to search for the files before spending money on third party software. After you’ve satiated that requirement, move on to purchasing quality data recovery software.
