Microsoft Windows is a widely used Operating system due to its user-friendliness and highly interactive GUI. There are many versions of Windows OS available, out of which Windows 10 and Windows 7 are considered to be the most stable ones. Windows users save a lot of data (personal as well as professional) on their PCs. It saves a lot of time in creating and maintaining a different kind of files when compared to old traditional paperwork. The data saved on a system is comparatively more secure and can be easily reused as well as shared with other people. But electronic data have their own disadvantages, therefore the files that are saved on your Windows PC cannot be considered as completely safe.
There are many reasons due to which the files saved on your Windows OS, might get deleted or lost. The best way to be sure that you do not lose your important or favorite data is by keeping a regular backup. So, in times of data loss situations, that backup can be utilized. But think of a situation when you lose the files before saving them onto a backup device. Then what will you do? Don’t worry; with the advancement in modern technology, nothing is impossible. One can easily recover missing files on Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows Vista & XP; using this Windows Recovery Software.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Once you encounter loss of files on your Windows system after accidental deletion, formatting the drive, corruption of the drive, deleting a partition, etc. and want to restore those files back, then immediately stop using the Windows drive from where files are deleted or lost. If the files that are deleted or lost from the drive are replaced with new files, then it's highly impossible to restore them back.
Windows Recovery Software comes Handy in Recovering Deleted, and Lost Files
The reason why the Windows Recovery Program is capable of retrieving deleted or lost files is that the data loss is not permanent. The files, that are removed or go missing, are just removed from the directory structure by erasing the link to the pointers. This makes those files invisible and the user thinks that they are gone forever. But the fact is until some new data overwrites the old one, the recovery is possible. You just need a reliable and effective restoration tool like Windows Recovery Software. This tool is even capable of retrieving missing files on the latest version of Windows OS, i.e. Windows 10. It performs the file restoration regardless of the scenarios under which the files were lost or deleted. Now take a look at some common data loss scenarios.
Windows Recovery Software can be used under following data loss scenarios –
Unintentional deletion – Deletion is observed as the most common reason for data loss. The user might accidentally delete some important files from their Windows OS while removing some unwanted ones. They might also delete some crucial data by using the Shift+Delete key combination, which results in the permanent deletion of the files. Sometimes the deletion is done knowingly, thinking that the files are either backed up or are not required anymore. But later the user realizes the need of that file.
Formatting or reformatting – Formatting is done to either make room for new data or to get rid of some kind of problem. Whatever may be the reason, the consequence of formatting is huge data loss, which no user can afford. There are times when user reformats their Windows system, which means the file system is changed from FAT to NTFS. This process, if interrupted, might produce the same result like formatting does. To recover data from reformatted Windows disk, Windows Recovery Utility will prove to be the best.
Partition Errors – Hard drive is partitioned in order to segregate data based on some category. This helps in the fast and efficient access to the file that a user wants to use. But if any interruption or problem occurs during the partitioning process, then all the data saved on those drives and maybe even other drives, will be lost.
Malware Infection – The source of infections or viruses is usually, the Internet. When a user accesses some suspicious websites or downloads infectious data, then these problems gets introduced into the system. Each time that file is accessed, the virus spreads itself and after some time, all the files saved on the hard drive might get corrupt. In worst cases, the virus even removes some crucial data without your knowledge. In this situation, if an external device is connected to the infected system, then it might also get affected.
File System Corruption – File system is responsible for the proper working of all the files present on a system. But due to improper handling of the system or because of some virus infection, this file system might get affected. This result in the inaccessibility of the files saved on the Windows system.
Other common reasons – Other reasons like anti-virus scanning, saving files on bad sectors, improperly shutting down the system and many other known or unknown reasons, are responsible for the loss of important data from your Windows PC.
