Hi,

I had accidentally deleted some important files in one folder which I tried to restore as possibly as I could using my restore point and third-party softwares but to no avail.
Is there a way on how to recover those files on its original shape?Pls help...

yethPC,

This can be done but no by using windows restore points. Windows restore points do not touch user files/folders.

You would need to invest in a 3rd party software that is made for recovering deleted files. Sometimes these can be a little confusing to use for a first timer. One you can try would be

Good luck

By the time I used these softwares to restore my files, these files were already in poor state and I did have nothing more to do to recover them. I tried to install 8 softwares and these two were the last.Pandorarecovery is good, while it's not only free it tries to deeply scan the deleted files.The next time it happens I know what to use.Thanks to all!

I use (free) FileHamster to run an additional back-up, just in case:
