I accidentally deleted many files on my HDD so I bought a new SSD so I could use Recuva to restore the lost files to my new SSD then afterwards put the recovered files back in my HDD before transferring everything from my HDD to my new SSD. I plugged in the SSD but it doesn't show up in my computer, am I meant to format it? I know it's connected properly since i see it in the disk management showing as Disk 1, whereas my HDD is Disk 0. It has like around 450 GB of unallocated space.

You will need to format the SSD drive.

Look in the Recycle Bin and see if the deleted files are there.  If they are there click/tap of Manage and select the Restore option.  Your files should be back where they belong after this.

The files were permanently deleted so I think they're gone forever. I tried recuva but it didn't work either.

It was worth a shot, there have been times when this was the easy fix.  Sorry to here about the loss of your data.  I had a instructor way back when when I took a Windows 98 class who would start each lecture by telling us to backup our data and do it often.  I take this suggestion one step further, you should store copies of all of your important data on removable media, such as an external SSD/HDD, flash drive, Cloud, etc.

Since recuva did not work, it is possible that your data was overwritten. Or you can try other third party software like easeus data recovery or Disk Drill ?

Hello bluesaber27,

Read this article: http://www.chabadkids.org/tutorial-to-restore-erased-files-on-windows-10. I am sure you are able to recover deleted or lost files from any computer based on any operating system.  I personally use this software to recover data from my computer. It is available free with plenty of advanced features.

Thanks

DellaVedova made a salient point in their post regarding recovering lost files.  If the missing files have been overwritten the would be gone for ever.  If this is the case then it will not matter what software is used, it can't recover files that no longer exist.
