It only takes one second, one little oversight, one-click too many, for you to accidentally ruin your life's work. But all is not lost. There is still a glimmer of hope to try to recover images, documents, and even videos after they have been deleted.

Let's see what the tricks, tips and applications you need for data recovery. How to recover deleted files?

Method 1: Check the Recycle Bin

The Recycle Bin is an extraordinary invention of Windows used to house deleted files for a certain amount of time. Its storage capacity equates to a small percentage of your hard drive, so when it fills up, it automatically starts saying goodbye to older documents.

To recover your file, you just have to double click on the thumbnail that appears on the screen and track the name of whatever it is that you have deleted. When you find it, stand on the right button and choose the Restore option. This is one of the quickest and easiest form of data recovery.

Likewise, you can also rescue all the documents by clicking on the Restore all Items option. Still, you must be careful with this decision, as they will reappear simultaneously and on the site from which they were fired.

This alternative is highly efficient if you notice the error as soon as possible and do not complete the Recycle Bin's complete cleaning. In the unfortunate case, here is the second solution.

Method 2: Install a file retriever

If you hit the Empty Recycle Bin button when a significant file was still there, the only solution is to install a file retriever. In case you didn't know, all the documents on your computer are made up of binary code that is still recorded on your hard drive, so they are never really deleted.

To view these files again, all you have to do is install data recovery software, better known as a recuperator. These are the programs we recommend:

The Piriform team - the mastermind behind the fabulous CCleaner cleaner - has blessed us with another incredible tool: Recuva. This is the most famous recuperator on the web and has the advantage of being free of charge. It can work only on Microsoft and Apple operating systems, and its download -through its official website- and its default configuration are elementary.

With Recuva data recovery tool, you can recover images, texts, videos and music, but only if they have been recently deleted. Unfortunately, you won't be able to find files that have been deleted for more than six months.

This developer allows you to restore texts, music, videos, images, graphics and emails with incredible efficiency. The advantage of Data Recovery is that it also allows you to search for more than one type of document if you select the All Files option.

But that's not all: this software also asks you for a specification of the site where you have lost the items. You can choose a specific folder or simply check the "I don't remember option for a complete search".
