Lost your ZIP files? Don't worry! Generally speaking, there is a big chance to find them back. When you lost ZIP files from your computer, the files are not erased permanently, but only the space that the files occupied is marked as blank and can be overwritten by new files. Therefore, you still can recover lost ZIP files before they are fully overwritten. If you lost files, remember to keep the source place well, and don't let "overwritten" make it hard work when you want to get them back.
