| p.2 #10 · Help! Retrieve deleted files from external hard drive. |
From my understanding, it is not difficult to restore deleted files back from external hard drive.
But, there are also several tips to be kept in mind when trying to get them back:
1). Nothing is guaranteed. Any improper operation can make your drive data irrecoverable. Moreover, even if the data shows as recoverable, you may find some or all of these drive stuffs to be corrupted and irrecoverable. So, there is no guarantee that you can completely get everything back.
2). Do NOT perform any write processes on the drive. Just leave this drive alone and avoid writing anything new on it. Any form of write to the source drive can increase the complexity of the recovery.
3). Apply some drive data recovery software to rescue your needed data as much as possible, like 4Card Recovery, Recuva, iCare Data Recovery Free and more.
If the data is extremely important for you, you may also spend some money to regain them when any data recovery software makes no change.
NO matter what happens again, never forget to make data backups on different devices.
