I deleted many folders that I did not want to delete. I tried using Recuva and see many files that I want to recovery.
 
I do not want to recover and organize all the files in the folders manually. Is there a way to recover the files so that the folders/file hierarchy is kept?
 
Will Recuva do that or is there a better recovery software to do that?
 
Thanks.

Additional Information: I am on Windows 8. I was moving files to my Google drive. I thought that I selected one file, but my entire desktop started to copy into my drive folder. I tried to stop this action. When I did stop this action, all of my desktop folders were gone. I checked my trash folder. The folder/files were not there. I checked in my drive folder. The folder/files were not there.

Try using the System Restore, choose a restore point prior to the removal of the files.

Thanks. That is a good idea. I tried it, but Window's System Restore did not work.

 

It actually made the problem worse. Running the recover software before Window's System Restore, I was able to see many files. After Window's System Restore, the percent of recoverable files dropped significantly.

 

Furthermore, Window's System Restore did not work well. Only certain folders were recovered, even though all folders were in the same location.

Have you looked in the recycle bin to see if they are there?

 

Another option would be to use Recuva.
