I accidentally deleted pictures and docs from a specific folder on my computer recently. The folder is still there. I have done a system restore, but it didn’t work. I don’t see them on Recycle Bin too. I need to access recently deleted files now. Please do advice. Thanks.

Many users may delete specific unwanted files and feel it’s almost impossible to recover recently deleted files when they can’t restore them from Recycle Bin. But is this the only truth? The answer is a big “No.” No matter how files are lost, you can retrieve them as long as new data on your device haven’t overwritten them. If you want to recover recently deleted data, you’d better stop using the drive immediately and find a reliable file recovery software program for help.

After scanning, all found contents on the scanned drive will be displayed in "File View" or "Tree View" categories in the window. You can view original file names or preview some file types such as pictures and documents to check how many deleted files can be recovered.
