Have you ever found yourself in a miserable position after you figured out you deleted some of your important files such as family pictures , videos, etc.. accidentally?
I had such a bad experience not so long ago, and searched to find a way to recover my files. Here i will quickly summarize how I succeeded in recovering 318 GB of files without any loss.
If something like that happens , first thing you need to remember would be not to make any files process on the hard disk where your files were located before they were deleted (files copy / move , software installation, etc..).
Secondly, I suggest you to install Recuva which is a free recovery software (Download page: http://www.piriform.com/recuva).
The software helps you to scan your drives and recover the files deleted with ease.
As I said before I recently recovered 318GB of files (56092 files) on one of my drives which was formatted accidentally. It took 10 hours but it worth.
Hope this helps. Thanks.
