Hi, I used IObit uninstall to uninstall a program in my Downloads folder. But it deleted all my files in the download folder. so I tried system restore but my folder could not be recovered. :( I guess I should not have the program in the downloads folder but is there anyway to recover back my files :(
Help me please cause there are so important files for me..

Have you tried using a recovery program? Such as Recova? http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Maybe you can recover them that way. :blink:

MiniTools Power Data Recovery, the free version, can help you recover up to 1GB of data files, and folders too [since they after all are simply files].  That along with Piriform's Recova, should help.

If you have not overwritten that section, recovery is possible; however, it will not be quick, it will not be easy.  If the NTFS version of File Allocation Tables and/or the DIRectory has been zero'd out -- you are in for a piece by piece data recovery.

 

5/16 addendum:  I'm curious, what did Recova and what did MiniTool Power Data Recovery display on the screen when you aimed them at C-partition, at downloads directory?  The listing of recoverable folders and files can be geekish.

Hello

The tool which I've used called "File Shredder" IObit Uninstaller , and I think that files were deleted permanently, cause it delete the file path.

When I've used Recova and MiniTool Power Data Recovery they only display the files that were removed by normal way,The list was too long and the restores files were unfamiliar to me .

I want to ask how can I save my important data offline to prevent such a thing in the future ?

Thanks so much for your help and care .

Bi-monthly data partition and/or folder/file backups by something like Macrium Reflect free onto at least if not two external HDs will do nicely.
