Bitmap File Recovery

“Hi, I had saved BMP files in a folder and placed it on my desktop. While deleting some files from desktop to clean the screen as it was appearing messy, I selected even this folder with BMP files. When I checked for the folder in Recycle Bin, I did not find it there. What can I do now to recover the folder with BMP files? Are BMP files gone forever? Please help me...”

You may get to see the posts like above in some blogs. BMP files are nothing but Bitmap image files. You might be wondering why the BMP files folder is not present in Recycle Bin; this is because the BMP files folder size might have exceeded the Recycle Bin storage capacity or you might have enabled the option ‘Don’t move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.’ Now the point is, is it possible to restore BMP files on your computer? Yes, of course you can get back deleted BMP files folder using image recovery software.

Some of the notable scenarios in which BMP files may get deleted or lost are as follows:

  • While transferring BMP files, the process may halt due to many reasons like loose connection in loop, power failure, unexpected system shutdown and so on
  • Formatting drives on computer results in deletion of BMP file saved on it as format process deletes entire data on the drive
  • Virus infection to BMP files makes them inaccessible or they will go into hidden format
  • BMP file loss from an externally attached drive on your computer due to accidental or intentional deletion
