Recover deleted items
You would agree with me that somewhere,somehow – you and I have lost DATA. Data could be lost by means deletion or corruption due to various reasons. And some of the reasons are not limited to:
- Virus Attacks
- Windows crash
- Accidental deletion
- Formatting of hard disk
- Corrupt of windows file system and more.
Let us demonstrate each step to recover deleted or lost items from USB. The same steps are applicable if you are recovering from any external or internal devices. Please note that the device must be readable.
Step 1. Select Recovery Mode (Quick, Deep & File Trace)
The Quick mode is used to recover mostly recent deleted or lost files – quick to scan & recover
The Deep will do more search for data you are unable to recover from quick mode – slightly takes long
The file trace will do in-depth scan for old lost or deleted files – it take much longer
Step 2. Select Drive to recover
You will have to select which external or internal drive to scan for recovery
Step 3. Click next to Scan
Clicking next will start the scan process. The amount of time will depend on the size of data to be retrieved. So make a cup of coffee while your device is scanned for recovery.
Step 4. Select files to Recover
As you can see below, the folder named “Tender” was recently deleted from USB and has been recovered. The “red” colour indicator shows it was recently deleted however you can select all applicable files to start recovery.
Step 5. Save recovered files
The file recovery process will be completed whether lost or deleted or even corrupt. Choose where you would like to save the recovered data and finish.
