How To Recover Deleted Files On Your Windows PC

How To Recover Deleted Files On Your Windows PC

Have you ever been in a situation where you mistakenly deleted a file on your PC? This can happen when we delete the file from the recycle bin in Windows OS or when we do not backup our files and lose them to virus attacks or whatnot. Do not worry anymore as there is a solution for you.

Your files are not immediately erased when you delete them on your PC

Do you know that whenever you delete a file on your hard disk, it is still there and never actually erased? Windows OS as well as other Operating Systems do not erase the contents of a file when you delete them. They do this is to save time and increase system performance.

What these Operating Systems do is that they delete the file’s pointer – a kind of data that points to the location of a file – with the file itself still residing on your hard disk.
