How to recover?  Have tried a couple of the "free" softwares out there to no avail. 

 

- easeUS

- Wondershare

- Active File Recovery

 

Deleted a Word doc from a folder, then deleted it from the recycle bin.  Windows 7 on a work-issue Dell Latitude E6440.  Any help is appreciated.

 

Thx,

 

EGS

Your chance of success depends very much on the amount of "use" the pc has had since deleting the file from the recycle bin.

 

Try RECUVA

Thanks man - just deleted the file last night.  Appreciate the heads up, trying Recuva now.

No such luck.  Didn't recover the doc.  Weird - it did recover some older stuff....

That seems a touch weird....I have not had sufficient experience with Recuva to know why that would be....

 

Is there any equally weird chance that the file is actually not deleted...??

 

Type the file name in the search box after clicking on the Start button....or EVERYTHING     is good to use.

And most of the files that it did recover were completely corrupted.  Anyway, yeah, I'm sure it was deleted.  Will try EVERYTHING.

Sorry I could not help more.

 

We used to have a 'resident' data retrieval expert, but I think the case load wore him out !
