windows 7 data recovery“I use Windows 7 PC whose operating system type is 64 bit. Today; my cousin accessed this system and was working on some files. After performing the tasks, he decided to delete unwanted files which he no more needed. So, he selected all his files and shift-deleted them. But, later I found that along with unwanted files, he had selected few necessary files of mine and deleted them. Now, how can I get back deleted files from my Windows system? Please someone help me by providing good solution.”

File deletion is the most frequently occurring cause for loss of files from Windows computers. Microsoft Windows OS has two types, 32-bit and 64-bit. These OS types define the processor’s capability of handling information on a computer. Generally, 64-bit Windows OS can process large amount of information (i.e. width of datapath, integer size and memory addresses will be of 64-bit) when compared to 32-bit processor. Thus, user can simultaneously run any number of programs on a 64-bit computing OS without any hassle in response time. Though, computers with 64-bit processors perform quick data activities, yet its users are prone to data loss due to deletion process.

Various reasons behind deletion of files from 64 bit Windows are:

  • Emptying Recycle Bin folder after every deletion can sometimes lead to removal of accidentally deleted important files
  • Accidentally pressing Shift-Del keys on a selected file/s will delete it even without sending to Recycle Bin
  • Erasing any file from command prompt causes deletion beyond manual recovery and later finding need for it
  • Other factors like deletion of necessary files by antivirus tool while removing infected files, severe malware infection on system drive and other issues sometimes erases any required files without notice from 64 bit Windows

In reality, just by deletion files won’t get erased from Windows system. They still reside in the same memory location on system drive; but they become unreachable or invisible to the 64-bit processor. This happens because, deletion process will only erase file entries in registry and deletes the index pointer value of that file. Hence, OS can no more recognize files even though they are present on the hard drive. In this instance, if data overwriting is avoided then deleted files from 64 Bit Windows system can be easily recovered.
