I assume you emptied your recycle bin Many users including myself have had success with Recuva. It is well worth a shot and should be attempted A.S.A.P

You should note that on computer forums it is considered SHOUTING to use upper case and the use of makes the post difficult to read!

Hi Ridgerunner1945, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

If you haven't emptied the Recycle Bin you can restore individual items, or all of the item.  

 

Right click on the item you want to remove from the Recycle Bin and choose Restore.

 

If you want to restore all of the items the is a pair of options at the top of the recycle bin, one of these is Restore all items.

 

If you have emptied the recycle bin the information is still on the hdd.  This is a time sensitive issue since the data removed from the recycle bin can be overwritten with other data.  So you need to try to retrieve the data as soon as possible.  Old Rocker's suggestion to use Recuva is a good choice.  I've used this program to retrieve "lost" data on hdds.

 

I suspect that you weren't intentionally shouting at us, I suspect that you accidentally pressed the cap lock key and weren't aware of the fact. :wink:


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
