Folder Recovery

Many computer users often create folders in which they store files of similar types so that, managing, editing, and accessing those files will become fast, easy, and effective task. The main advantage of creating a folder is, you can store the important data separately. Let us take an example in order to know the advantage and disadvantage of creating folders. Assume that you are a content writer who writes article on different topics regularly. Hence, you create a new folder so that you can easily save all the files in it.

Now, imagine that one of your important folder has been accidentally deleted, which carried some of your important files. What will you do in such situation? How will you recover folder? Will you recreate all the files present in that folder? Do you have that much of time for creating the lost files once again? If you don’t have time, then you are left with only one option i.e. Recovery software.

However accidental deletion is not only responsible for data loss. There are some other factors, few of them are listed below :

  • Losing Folders due to Virus: If the folder in which you have stored important files is attacked by the virus then there may be a possibility of losing it
  • Recycle Bin Bypass: If you delete small sized folder, you can recover it from Recycle Bin using restore option. But deletion of large sized folder bypass the Recycle Bin and you cannot find any other option on your computer to restore them
  • Deleting Folders from an External Device: If you delete any folder saved in your external device, then it does not get stored in Recycle Bin and hence results in data loss
  • Accidental Formatting: Accidental formatting leads to not only folder loss but also entire data present in your hard drive
  • Deletion of Files by Third Party Tool: In some case, the third party applications i.e Antivirus software, which you use to protect your computer may also delete the folder. It may delete the folder without giving warning if it detects any virus in it
