This nightmare can happen to anyone: we’re working on some extremely important files when suddenly the files accidentally get deleted, corrupted, the PC dies, or anything of this sort. There are loads of unfortunate events that can keep us from gaining access to our file(s).
Not having a backup for these files – this is the true apocalypse.
However, you should know that in such cases you’re not really deleting or losing your data. The system marks the specific area where those files reside as a reusable area and it removes that file from the index.
This means that there is a certain period of time in which you are still able to restore that file.
In order to help you with your data loss dilemmas, we have gathered a collection of data recovery tools for Windows 10 which will become your best friends during the harsh moment of data loss. These can truly help you in areas ranging from simple file recovery to a more complex total partition rescue.
Note: We’ve talked about other open-source file recovery data here.
What are the best data recovery tools I can find?
