Is there any way to recover my PSD file? I was working on a designing project in Adobe Photoshop application yesterday, where my Windows computer turned off suddenly. I restarted computer and found that Photoshop file which I was working on is missing. It was very strange and annoying incident!!! I worked on lost PSD file from last one week, can this file be recovered?

Yes definitely. Not only you, there are many Adobe Photoshop users who end up deleting or losing their important PSD files due to some unfortunate situations. The best way to solve this problem is to restore PSD file from an updated backup. But what if you don’t have backup? Usually users don’t take backup or update their backup files regularly. Thus you need to employ a suitable photo recovery software to get back your PSD files.

Photoshop file loss can happen due to the below mentioned causes:

  • Users may unintentionally delete their PSD files from computer while doing some other task using “Shift + Delete” keys
  • Deadly viruses or other computer worms can damage your Photoshop file, making it inaccessible or cause its loss
  • Photoshop files can be lost if your system gets abruptly shut down while using or accessing your Photoshop file
  • Electro static power surge while transferring or moving your PSD files from computer to external storage drive
  • Crash of OS, operations like installation, reinstallation and up gradation would cause loss of entire files from hard disk including your PSD files

What to do after encountering such situations?

The best thing to do after facing such situation is to immediately stop using your hard disk or any other device from where your PSD files were deleted / lost, because adding new data to same drive will result in overwriting of the original files making PSD file recovery more difficult.
