Physical stores may be best for a customer that does not enjoy dealing with technology, but for many people, the software solution is the best one available—especially in an emergency where there is no time to get to a store. There is a good chance that you can get your files back from your storage device and resume working on them if you use data recovery software.
Recovery Software for Deleted Data
We recommend using Disk Drill for DIY data recovery. It’s one of the most thorough options out there, and it works with a wide array of different file types. It also happens to be free for up to 500 MB recovery for Windows users.
One. So, to use Disk Drill to get your files back, first you’ll need to download it.
Two. Once you have Disk Drill, you’ll open the application as you would any other application. A window will pop up asking if you want to initiate Disk Drill and allow it to make changes to your computer. Select “Yes”.
Three. You will now see the main Disk Drill interface. In the center of that interface will be a list of devices that are on your computer or attached to your computer. Choose the one that you want to recover from. You can recover everything on the device or you can recover individual files.
Four. Once you’ve selected the device you want to scan, you’ll see a button reading “All recovery methods”. It has a dropdown with other options, but for this first use, let’s just stick with the default.
Now, click on the blue “Search for lost data” at the bottom.
Five. You can either wait for Disk Drill to scan every file in the selected device, or you can choose to “Review found items” and go straight to the ones that have already been found. The scan will keep running in the background, but you can also stop scanning completely at any time by clicking on the “Stop scanning” button on the same screen.
If you elect to recover all files, click the blue “Recover all” button. Before doing this, consider looking at all the files that Disk Drill has found. It will find a massive array of files, including ones long inactive and deleted, so you may be recovering far more files than you actually need to be recovering.
If you prefer recovering an individual file, click the checkbox to the left of that file. Then, click the blue “Recover” button.
Six. Disk Drill will ask you where you’d like it to save your recovered files. Make sure that you note where it’s pointing to. You’ll have to go to that location afterward to get the files.
If Disk Drill failed to secure your files, check out their help page or their troubleshooting page. In these cases, it’s possible that your device may be physically broken, meaning you’ll need to get to a professional. It may also mean the files were unsaved, to begin with, which may make the files beyond recovery.
