We will first try to delve into the fact on why you might face these situations and then illustrate on methods to recover deleted data from Windows 10.
Certain reasons to why your Windows 10 data might have had been lost are elaborated here below:
- In case when you were changing the location, and you left the contents of C:\users\username\documents in the same location without having moved to D:\documents; you might encounter this issue.
- If you chose to redirect their folders to an alternative folder on OneDrive yet you desired not to shift the existent files to the new location. Since you did not move these files, the recent Update considered them to be duplicate folders. As a result, it deleted them.
- If you used known folder redirection in an earlier version of OneDrive having had turned on Autosave. In this case, The client did not move your old files to the new location. This would result in the updated version to remove them.
In these cases, what can you do and how do you solve this issue? Well, that is exactly what we’ll discuss in the next few passages. Having said that, there are both manual and mechanical or automated methods to recover deleted data from Windows 10.
The first thing to do is to use back up which might restore deleted files in Windows10. Follow the simple procedures to steps to use back up:
- Go to Control Panel
- Open Backup and Restore. Click set up backup under Backup or restore your files.
- The process begins. Select the location to save your backup. Click Next
- Choose what you want to backup. The Window provides options such as Let Windows Choose (recommended) and Let me Choose(Please note that it is always safe to choose the first option since Windows itself chooses the right data. However, this is just an opinion and you might differ.)
- Click Next.
- Review the backup settings and click on Save settings and run backup. The Backup process begins. (Note: the process might take some time)
There is but another way to recover deleted data by restoring previous versions, which is done with the help of File History.
- Right-click on the folder which consisted of the permanently deleted file or files or folder/folders
- Select ‘Restore previous versions’.
- From the existing versions, select the one which has dates mentioned; of the files when they were there
- Now, press ‘Restore’ or drag & drop the version you desire at a location of your choice on the system.
Please keep in mind that you should use an external storage drive in order that you may prevent data overwriting in case you do not find the desired files in the restored version.
Both back up & restore processes, File History backup, and restore previous versions solutions can help get your lost data back but not the updated one and the highly corrupted or permanently deleted data well. Here shifting from manual ways to the automated solution to recover the Windows 10 data would be a rootable decision.
