How to Recover Recently Deleted Files

Part 1.Can I Restore Recently Deleted Files?

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 feel it’s almost impossible to recover recently deleted files when they can’t restore them from Recycle Bin. But is this really the only truth? The answer is a big “No”. No matter how files are lost, you can possible retrieve them as long as they haven’t been overwritten by new data on your device.
