I am trying to retrieve deleted files from the Downloads folder. I have tried to configure and restore the computer but it would only take me back to Oct 24th 2017. I need to go back at least to Aug 1st 2017. I have a Samsung Laptop with Windows 7.

Have you tried the recycle bin?

You might be able to recover some files using things such as Piriform's Recuva or MiniTool Power Data Recovery just to name two of many out there; you probably be best off making portable copies onto USB or DVD boots.

Is there a Data recovery Tool or Recuva on the Bleeping Computer website that could be used?
